Most of us aren’t sponsored athletes, and so naturally are working on budgets. The Speedmax CF SLX 9.0 has been designed and built for ambitious athletes who want to have the best possible setup, but don’t have endless funds for the most expensive kit.
With Ultegra Di2 and Reynolds Strike Carbon Clinchers as headliners, not to mention the best time trial/tri frame Canyon has ever made, and you will definitely be setting off on a bike equal to or better than any currently racing in the WorldTour. The geometry has been tweaked to make it comfortable while on the aero bars, so if you are an endurance fiend and want to use this bike for your seriously long distance races, you will be able to do so without worrying about long term back pain. Using the Shimano Ultegra Di2 will give this bike the sort of clean, crisp shifting performance with the aid of the Di2 button shifters that are perfect for the aero cockpit, so you’ll never skip a gear. 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. Hydration and nutrition storage systems have been craftily integrated and are also easily removed, making the frame UCI compliant.
If you are switching over from riding road bikes exclusively, you’ll want to give yourself a little time to get used to the handling of a time trial bike like the Speedmax, though the intelligent geometry prompts intuitive handling for the bike, which should help even the first-timer. The Canyon F32 Aero fork has a lot to do with that since it has been designed with a rake shift option when you change the insert in the fork dropouts to prompt either agile or stable handling depending on the course or your personal preference. Since you’ll be using the Reynolds Strike Carbon Clincher for wheels, you can count on them not only providing the aero advantage of 62mm deep rims, but also exceptional braking surface.
If you are buying the Speedmax CF SLX 9.0 with a notion of competing in one of those mass start triathlons, you can be certain this will be the bike to help you to pick off all those folks who are slightly faster swimmers than you.

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.
