If you’re looking for an advantage to take you to the next level the CF SLX is the bike for you.
Inspired by our record breaking pro-level frame using many of the same features, this is the bike to realise your ambitions and go way beyond them.
Class-leading aerodynamic development
Top-end aerodynamics are essential to saving those valuable watts when every second counts.
That’s why together with our aerodynamics partners Swiss Side, we’ve taken the already outstanding aerodynamics of the Speedmax and elevated them to a whole new level.
9 watts faster at 45 km/h (with disc brakes)
Shaving precious watts from the bike that dominated Kona every year since its launch is one thing. Doing it while adding the superior control of disc brakes is a next-level engineering feat. We did it using advanced aero development methods with our aero partners Swiss Side.
An aero, sidewind-stable fork
We sculpted the fork to be as stable as possible in sidewinds while also being as aerodynamically efficient as possible. We save additional watts by covering the brake calliper, which can cause extra drag. The result: top aero performance, top handling.
8 mm seatstays
By stepping outside UCI regulations, we could build thinner 8 mm seatstays for less drag. The thinner forms also increase the distance between the seatstays themselves, optimising air flow around the rear wheel.
Innovative, integrated storage
The Speedmax CF SLX is packed full of aerodynamic, integrated, rapid-access storage that saves you seconds when seconds matter most.
And our speedy refill valve allows you to top up your in-frame Hydrapak bladder on the go.
Aerodynamic bottom bracket toolbox
The bottom bracket box gives you storage for inner tubes or additional bike maintenance kit. Part of the frame’s carbon structure, it’s made from ultra-rare Toray MX40 carbon fibre and contributes to improving the frame’s aerodynamics stiffness.
Top tube bento box
By fully integrating the bento box into the frame, we reduced weight while also improving stiffness and aerodynamics. A newly designed high-grade lid lets you get inside the box in an instant.
750 ml Hydrapak bladder
Developed with hydration experts Hydrapak, this bladder is invisibly integrated into the down tube of the Speedmax, providing plenty of hydration with no need to change your position.
Unlimited, simple cockpit adjustability
The highly modular design of the Speedmax CF SLX cockpit enables you to refine your fit to the nearest millimetre.
In fact, with stepless extension length and grip angle adjustment, you get an unlimited amount of different configurations for ultimate fit flexibility.
Total adjustability | Customisation
Your choice of a flat or riser base bars
The basis of every great aero setup. Once you buy a Speedmax CF SLX you can work with our customisation team to select the right base bar for your needs.
110 mm of cockpit height adjustability
Some courses (and triathletes) call for an aggressive slammed cockpit position. Other longer, bumpy courses require more height. With simple out-of-the-box cockpit adjustability, you can choose whatever position your ambition demands.
Adjustable grip width and reach
Grip reach, width and rotation can all be adjusted to give you the best position possible. We designed our arm pads, base bar grips and extension grips in collaboration with Ergon for exceptional comfort and durability.
Customise your Speedmax CF SLX
World-class performance means nothing without world-class comfort. To stay fast and powerful on the longest races, the two go hand-in-hand.
That’s why the Speedmax CF SLX is fitted with high-grade contact points, exclusively developed together with Ergon, that deliver next-level front-centre comfort.
