Ultimate AL 8.0
Is this the best alloy frame in the world? Canyon's new alloy frame achieves a mark that is otherwise only matched by top carbon frames.
Is this the best alloy frame in the world? Canyon's newly developed alloy frame achieves a mark that is otherwise only matched by top carbon frames. The frame's most notable innovation in comparison to its very good predecessor is the switch to internally routed cables and Pressfit bearings. A further innovation becomes visible when one takes a closer look at the bike's geometry. The relationship between frame height and length is almost identical in all frame sizes and is an optimum compromise between a competitive and comfortable riding position. Thanks to the superb damping characteristics of the seat post the Ultimate AL 8.0 raises the bar yet again in the saddle comfort stakes. In the test Campagnolo's 11-speed Athena groupset proved its worth as an adequate alternative to Shimano's best-selling Ultegra components.
Impressive alloy frame, good equipment, outstanding comfort and superb value-for-money.
