Highlights

You’ve probably been reading about all sorts of bikes being designed with aerodynamics as the key. That’s all well and good, but lots of these aero bikes on the market don’t actually ride that well. After all, most of us aren’t training to break the hour record, we just want to have a great bike to ride without having to spend too much. The Ultimate AL SLX 8.0 Aero is Canyon’s answer for anyone who wants to buy a terrific bike that is slippery in the wind, and still easily slipped into a budget. This is no aluminium bone shaking frame that you maybe remember from those early days when alu was first taking over from steel frames. Weighing only 1170 g in size M, this frame is one of the lightest alloy frames on the market. The Ultimate AL SLX offers a silky smooth ride with the same Sport Pro Geometry that the carbon frames have. The Reynolds Strike Carbon SLG have the perfect 62 mm depth and a generous 25mm width so that you can run wider tires to keep the cushioned feel without negatively impacting the rolling resistance. And the SLG in the name indicates that these wheels have received Reynolds Swirl Lip Generator upgrade to improve not only aerodynamics but also stability in cross winds, which if anything is more important. The newly refined Shimano Ultegra groupset is the perfect choice for anyone who wants the top quality features from the Dura Ace group, but also is interested in keeping the price at a reasonable level. The Ultimate AL SLX 8.0 Aero proves that no bike needs to be overly specialised in order to excel in all areas.
