Top levels of stiffness, outstanding suspension and superb ride performance: the Ultimate AL is without doubt one of the best alloy frames in the world and in the tests leaves even its carbon fibre rivals way back in its wake. The new One One Four SLX carbon fork also guarantees world-beating levels of comfort. The lightweight racing fork with carbon drop-outs is extremely stiff and absorbs hard shocks and vibrations from the road thanks to its excellent VCLS technology. That takes pressure off the muscles and saves your energy for the sprint finish.
The premium alloy road bike raises the bar in the comfort stakes with the interplay of the comfortable Canyon VCLS Post, the Canyon Ergospeed Gel bar tape, the 25mm tyres on all compact versions and the Fizik saddles. The well balanced Sport Pro-Geometry is ideal for demanding racing cyclists and is the happy medium between a competitive and yet still comfortable position on the bike. The organic tube shapes, the internally routed cables and the all-round modern design make this alloy race bike a real high-flyer when it comes to appearance.
They look great, save weight and are easy to replace: internally routed cables. The cross-over routing inside the frame ensures that the cables don't rattle inside the tube. Thanks to the large maintenance opening on the down tube the cables can be replaced in a matter of seconds.
Increased stiffness through the wider connection of the seat stays to the seat tube. The wider connection of seat tube to bottom bracket shell also increases bottom bracket stiffness significantly.
VCLS stands for vertical comfort lateral stiffness. Slimline seat stays in connection with the Maximus Seat Tube increase the level of comfort and performance. The VCLS technology helps you perform better for longer and you can gain crucial centimetres in that final sprint.
The patented Maximus Seat Tube stands for maximum bottom bracket stiffness and minimal weight. The characteristic of this design is the significantly wider connection between the bottom bracket and the seat tube. This makes the bottom bracket much stiffer and more than adequate even for world class sprinters despite the thinner tube walls.
