deep black matt - comet green
Anyone can get out and ride a bike, but it takes a special sort of person to commit to the demands of riding and racing a time trial machine. Whether you are a triathlete looking to shave minutes off you Ironman times, or you are a roadie who wants to increase your competitiveness in stage races that include ITTs, then buying the Speedmax CF SLX 9.0 SL will give you a sharper edge with which to cut through the air and the competition. For all the Ironmen and women out there, the greatest improvement you’ll see with this version of the Speedmax is the complete integration of things like hydration and nutrition storage points. The handling will also be markedly improved, if that is possible since crisp handling was already a hallmark of the original Speedmax. The geometry of the frame has been tweaked so that you can settle into your aero position and feel incredibly stable at high speeds.
The H26 CF Basebar combined with the fully integrated V19 AL Aero stem not only provides an aerodynamic face to the wind, but offers a wide range of adjustability with spacers and extensions. Then the Canyon E192 AL Extensions Ergo-S-Bend, developed in conjunction with Ergon, have a comfort-oriented s-bend shape to the extensions and plush arm pads that will prevent the numbing and fatigue that can result from poorly aligned and inadequately padded aero bars. Hydration and nutrition storage systems have been designed to sneak in between the bars, in the case of the hydration, and then seamlessly behind the headset for the nutrition storage. These storage points, though, are also easily removed, making the frame UCI compliant.
Turning to Shimano Dura Ace Di2, this is a bike that will help you give your best because you will be using only the best. Paired with the Zipp 808 NSW carbon clincher in the rear, the Speedmax CF SLX 9.0 SL comes with the Zipp 404 NSW carbon clincher for the front. For anyone who finds a full 808 set up a little overwhelming in crosswinds, having the still hyper aero 58mm depth, but very controllable 404s will help you feel more stable and less afraid of staying on the aero bars in heavy side winds.
The level of success for all cyclists and triathletes is defined ultimately by their level of discipline. When you order the Speedmax CF SLX 9.0 SL you can counterweight the expense with the very real dedication to your sport with this bike that will give you even more motivation.

BIKE CLASSIFICATION: Bikes of this category are designed for riding on hard-surface roads where the wheels remain impermanent contact to the ground. These are in general road-racing bicycles with racing handlebars or straight handlebars, triathlon or time trial bicycles. The permissible maximum overall weight comprising rider, luggage and bicycle should not exceed 120 kg. Under certain circumstances, this permissible maximum weight can be further limited by the component manufacturers’ recommendations for use. Proven cyclocross bikes with racing handlebars and cantilever or disc brakes are a special case in this category. In addition, these bikes are also suitable for gravel paths and off-road trails where a short loss of tire contact with the ground due to small stairs or steps at a height of 15 to 20 cm can occur.
