Aeroad CF 8.0 Di2, 03.2012

For just 3299 Euros you'll be riding a top-of-the-range bike!

The Aeroad CF 8.0 Di2 is some bike. "Canyon's carbon frame is the German brand's jewel in the crown and was tried and tested by Omega-Pharma Lotto's main man Philippe Gilbert during the 2011 season. The frame will again be present in the professional peloton during 2012 with team Katusha, who is riding the Aeroad CF 9.0 Team version."

For just 3299 Euros you'll be riding a top-of-the-range bike with an Ultegra Di2 electronic Shimano groupset. This bike is equipped with a very reliable set of alloy Mavic Cosmic Elite wheels and a Ritchey WCS 4-axis stem. The Ritchey WCS Curve Handlebar offers a high level of comfort as does the premium Selle Italia saddle.

Almost as soon as we get on the bike we notice the bike's superb responsiveness and agility, which makes it a great performer when cornering at speed. This agility translates into fantastic performance when descending or riding in the bunch. The shifting is fast, smooth and quiet.

The frame offers scintillating acceleration and sprint characteristics. The Aeroblade SL fork absorbs all ranges of shocks perfectly and makes a valuable contribution to the overall responsiveness of the frame. The saddle's wide range of adjustment allows the rider to achieve an optimum position on the bike.

You probably think that there must be some mediocre components in the ensemble for us to be able to offer a bike for this price. No way! the entire range of components on the Aeroad CF 8.0 Di2 is of premium quality and that's a fact!
