Ultimate CF 9.0

Roadbike 10/2010

In a preliminary test for the 2011 season the Ultimate CF 9.0 stepped up to the plate with the same frame once again.

"Actually there's little more to say about the Canyon Ultimate CF. The frameset is purely and simply among the best in the world." These were the opening words in Roadbike Magazine's test, in which eight 2011 road bikes from renowned manufacturers went head to head.

This was the verdict of the testers on the Canyon and showed that one can stay up with the very best even with a tried and tested frameset.

"The Ultimate CF was also able to impress out on the road with its great seating position and direct handling."

All in all the Ultimate CF was more than satisfactory and creamed of the maximum number of points for frame, forks and weight! What really caught the testers' attention was the low weight and the perfectly harmonious function of the carbon seat post and carbon frame.

Verdict: One of the best and most sporty frames in the world has all the more flair thanks to the Campagnolo Chorus group set. Thanks to the top equipment this racer reaches a dream weight of 6.8kg. Together with the competitively low price the bike can h
