The Speedmax CF SLX 8.0 is that very rare animal: a practical time trial or tri bike. In the current setup, this is a bike that you can ride every day, nearly every road surface. This bike has the same great components and design flourishes of some of the other SLXs, but one great nod to an extra dose of practicality comes in the shape of the Mavic Cosmic Elite UST coming standard on the Speedmax CF SLX 8.0. Durable, lightweight and tubeless ready, these are wheels meant for long distances. Using the Shimano Ultegra Di2 will give this bike the perfect clean, crisp shifting performance with the aid of the Di2 button shifters that are ideal for the aero cockpit, so you’ll never skip a gear. The CF Basebars combined with the fully integrated V21 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, have a comfort-oriented s-bend shape to the extensions and plush arm pads, developed in conjunction with Ergon. Hydration and nutrition storage systems have been craftily integrated and are also easily removed, making the bike UCI compliant. The Speedmax CF SLX 8.0 is the type of tri or time trial bike that you can feel comfortable taking out on a training and on race day. If you are in the market looking for the perfect all-rounder for a very niche discipline, then you could hardly do better than the Speedmax CF SLX 8.0.

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.
