Ultimate AL 9.0 Di2
Who said that top class road bikes have to be made of carbon anyway? Tour magazine tested 8 top models and the Canyon Ultimate AL 9.0 Di2 scooped the test victory as the best value-for-money bike.
Who said that top class road bikes have to be made of carbon anyway? Tour magazine tested 8 top models and the Canyon Ultimate AL 9.0 Di2 scooped the test victory as the best value-for-money bike. The most remarkable feature on this alloy racer built by the Koblenz based direct seller is the VCLS Flat Spring Post, which literally catapults the bike in to the Premier League in the comfort stakes. When riding this bike, the rider will get the impression he's sitting on a very comfortable carbon frame. Never in his wildest dreams would he think he's sitting on an alloy bike. Canyon also doesn't make any compromises in other areas. The lightweight fork and the easy-to-adjust headset from Acros knock the weight of the frameset down to 1664g. Despite this the frame is as steady as a rock thanks to the scintillating levels of stiffness. The Di2 shift system with internally routed cables and the battery positioned under the bottom bracket enhances the bike's attractive appearance even further.
VERDICT: Test winner with an excellent frameset. Great damping on the saddle thanks to the optional comfort seat post.
