At Canyon we understand that not everyone has an unlimited budget, and so we try always to make the best bikes possible available to the greatest number of people. With the Aeroad CF SLX 8.0, you’ll be buying a pro-level bike at a great price. This is the same frame which is used by Movistar and Katusha in the Grand Tours. At 980 g, it’s one of the lightest aero frames available and was developed to handle the punishing pedal power of WorldTour sprinters, so you can be sure that this is a seriously rigid and responsive frame. But unlike many other aero-oriented bikes, the Aeroad is actually comfortable as well. The Pro Geometry means you can slam the stem and make the most of the aerodynamic design. The rigidity of the head tube and bottom bracket directs all your pedal power to the roads, and keeps the handling razor sharp, while the Trident 2.0 downtube provides the stable, aerodynamic spine to the whole setup. The S27 Aero VCLS CF seatpost that uses the Trident 2.0 aero technology also found on the downtube, enhances the clever, clean lines of the design with an integrated seatpost clamp. The 11-speed mechanical Shimano Ultegra is a great choice for this bike since it represents a top-quality high-performance groupset that is perfect for budget-minded riders. This bike goes all-out in terms of wheelset, since you’ll be getting the Reynolds Strike Carbon Clinchers. The deepest dish wheel in the Reynolds Performance line at 62mm, the Strike have the SLG or Swirl Lip Generator design which improves aerodynamics and keeps them incredibly stable and predictable in even the strongest crosswinds. If you’re looking for high-performance on a budget, the Aeroad CF SLX 8.0 should easily tick all your boxes.
