profile

SL stands for Super Lightweight, and this carbon fibre marvel certainly lives up to its name. The entire frameset weighs a mere 1190 g including fork and head tube, and provides impressive comfort and stiffness. On all terrains and in any situation, the stiff One One Four SLX fork delivers an exciting ride with accurate steering and optimised damping. The sleek black high-end R-Sys wheels from Mavic are unbeatable when it comes to weight and agility.

The exclusive Exalith treatment makes the rim durable, stable yet super lightweight. Like all the best supermodels, the new 22-speed Sram Red watches its weight. It weighs exactly the same but has two extra speeds and is non-trim in all combinations, fast, virtually silent and ergonomically designed. Lightweight design perfected – the Ultimate CF SLX 9.0 SL will get you excited.

Highlights

Comfortable seat tube junction
absorbs severe shocks and vibrations

OneOne Four SLX
with weight saving carbon drop-outs

Asymmetric chain stays
guarantee optimum ride performance

Bottom bracket housing with carbon bearing seat
guarantees high levels of stiffness

VCLS Technology
Vertical Comfort, Lateral Stiffness – the VCLS Stays in conjunction with the VCLS Post improve the suspension properties of the frame effectively, without affecting the lateral stiffness. The VCLS Blades on the fork, comprising a special combination of basalt and carbon fibres, complete the Canyon VCLS Technology.

i-Lock headset system
With the special clamping mechanism of the i-Lock headset system the drilling of the steerer tube and the fitting of a clamping cone are no longer necessary. This ensures that the carbon shaft of the fork stays intact and offers maximum safety in every riding situation.

One One Four SLX
The race fork with carbon drop-outs is perfectly integrated into the overall design concept. The special and slimline headset bearings allow a fork steerer diameter of 1¼ inches despite the reduced frontal surface area. The result is maximum stiffness for the sprint and optimum steering precision and safety on the descent.
