In an elaborate test with 8 extremely different bikes (1149 - 14999 Euro) TOUR magazine examined the comfort levels of the 8 frames. The Canyon Ultimate CF 9.0 (2099 Euro) was also in on the action and was second most favourably priced bike in the test. It was right up there with the best bikes in the evaluation.

The judges were almost unanimous in their praise for the superb damping characteristics of the saddle. The Ultimate CF frame, whose successor is about to be launched onto the market, has been updated several times during its 4-year production span. One specific modification was the addition of basalt to the carbon fibres on the rear triangle, fork and seat post. The aim is to improve the damping performance of the chassis. The comments of the testers are unanimous that this combination is successful particularly on the saddle.

A real competitor for bikes in higher price categories.
