Ultimate CF SLX 9.0 Team
Philippe Gilbert's successes were all achieved on a Canyon. The Ultimate CF SLX 9.0 Team is a pure pro rider bike. A dream bike at an affordable price.
In comparison to other brands, Canyon doesn't save money on the handlebar , seat post, saddle or stem. We can find high-end products even on the tyres. Congratulations!
The high-end Aeorad CF frame offers greater aerodynamic and longer geometry, the SLX stays are a benchmark in terms of STW ratio.
Choosing a Canyon, forces you to check the geometry table and the eight proposed sizes. I find the steerer tube a bit long, even though the lines of the frame look well balanced.
As far as the level of comfort goes(...), the Ultimate CF SLX is practically faultless.
Rare for such an affordable bike, the Campagnolo Super Record drive train, smooth and precise.
The steering is efficient for peloton rides or rapid changes in direction, as well as in overcoming the high level of lateral stiffness.
Mavic R Sys wheels are a further responsive addition to the frame. The bike seems to be weightless between the rider's legs, but still offers a superb transmission of power between rider and bike.
The Canyon is perfect for climbers or riders who want a true companion on the climbs, but is also comfortable on long distance rides. Riders who prefer high rims will also find what they're looking for in the Ultimate CF SLX range and always at outstanding value for money!
