The Inflite series
Whether you’re a committed racer taking on the demands of modern cyclocross, or if you simply want to head out and enjoy a ride whatever the conditions, our versatile Inflite range can handle any punishment you throw its way. The all-new carbon Inflite CF SLX is the most innovative bike on any cross course, packed with features that slash seconds off every lap. Away from the track, any desire to scratch the off-road itch or keep the pedals turning whenever the weather turns can be satisfied by the robust aluminium Inflite AL SLX, your ideal year-round training partner. After all, there is no off-season.
Mathieu van der Poel is one of the most exciting prospects in global cycling, and we are proud to be a part in finding out what heights he can hit with the Corendon-Circus team. Don’t miss this young squad of European talent taking the Inflite CF SLX to the front of the race at Superprestige and World Cup level.
The unique layout of the top tube and seat tube creates an ergonomic platform for the shoulder while the space gained makes it easier to get into position.
Space & Comfort Gains
Beyond improved carrying, the unique form of the seat tube junction serves another important function by exposing more seatpost. This is something rarely seen on modern cross bikes; by enabling the post to flex more, rider comfort is vastly improved allowing them to stay fresher for longer when racing. In spite of taking this new and unconventional approach to adapting form so it better serves function, the Inflite CF SLX is 100% UCI legal. It’s ready to race.
Adding more stability at speed while maintaining agility for when things get technical is always a fine balance to strike. In all mountain biking disciplines, the move towards longer reaches combined with shorter stems and wider bars has been established with great effect to achieve this balance. We've adopted a similar approach to reflect the progression in modern cyclocross. Extending both reach and wheelbase results in extra stability at speed, while handling agility is maintained thanks to longer rake and 72.5° a head angle. Equipping cross-specific cockpits with wider bars and shorter stems further enhances control.
From better carrying to reducing the build-up of mud, all shapes across the Inflite CF SLX were born to serve a distinct purpose. Integration also plays a central role, from the cockpit to the seatpost and multiple details in between, all elements contribute to a clean and reduced appearance. The result is one of the most striking silhouettes we have ever produced, backed up by eye-catching asymmetric artwork to highlight the forms at play. The Inflite CF SLX truly looks like nothing else on the start line.
