Ultimate CF 9.0 Pro

TOUR, 04/2012

TOUR put 16 bikes in total to the test. The Ultimate CF 9.0 set benchmarks in the area of vibration absorption.

The Ultimate CF 9.0 Pro closely resembles a marathon runner. There is hardly a road bike around that absorbs vibration better and on rough road surfaces the superiority of this bike to the competition cannot be measured by mere statistics. This is down to the ingenious carbon layup of the fibres, which Canyon has blended into the carbon matrix on both the seat post and fork. At the same time, the Koblenz based firm has succeeded in achieving the perfect compromise between a bike that offers a competitive riding position and a high level of ride comfort. The 11-speed Chorus groupset from Campagnolo is on a par with the Super Record version, which alone costs as much as this entire bike. The bike is also equipped with durable Mavic wheels, a easy-to-grip alloy handlebar and an outstanding seat post, which guarantees great shock absorption - what more could a rider ask for?

Outstanding carbon frame, above-average equipment. A benchmark in the test in the area of vibration absorption.
