Roadbike, 05/11

In the popular 2500 Euro price range Canyon secures test victory.

"Yet another test victory for Canyon. The Koblenz based firm really does seem to have the knack of gaining test victories." Even the testers from Roadbike magazine are overwhelmed by the outstandingly built road bikes.

The 2500 Euro price category is the most popular among racing cyclists. "24 percent of riders surveyed want to buy a bike in this category", writes Roadbike. It's then obvious that the magazine put bikes in this price range through their paces. 20 manufacturers offered their most popular road bikes so that Roadbike was able to put all the candidates through extensive lab and road tests. The Canyon Ultimate CF 9.0 was the only bike in the test to achieve the top mark "outstanding" and therefore also the overall test victory.

The Canyon impressed in the road test. "Sporty riders are impressed by the forward power, the razor sharp steering and the level of comfort which the frame offers above all on rear the triangle, but also at the front." The manufacturers attach great importance to a high level of comfort even in this price category. The Canyon shines in this area with its VCLS technology. The VCLS post can withstand peak loads thanks to the basalt fibres and at the front the One One four fork SLX guarantees maximum stiffness and the necessary comfort. The result: The Ultimate CF 9.0 ticks all the right boxes in the areas bottom bracket, headset stiffness as well as comfort at both the front and rear triangle of the bike.

According to the editors, "the bikes in the 2500 Euro range impress [...] with their excellent value for money. The Koblenz based firm has once again succeeded in scoring high in this category. Canyon equips the bike with Campagnolo Chorus […]." The editors sum up, "A closer look at the test results is an explanation for the success. A superbly built frame, premium results in the weight stakes (under 7 kgs) and the above average equipment thanks to the direct sales philosophy guarantees a mega high overall points score in the test."

The outstanding frame, the super equipment and the sporty performance impress even the most spoiled riders - test victory for Canyon.
