The world’s no.1 bike. Reinvented. The Canyon Aeroad concept embodies racing in its purest form. Ever since we first launched the Aeroad CF in 2010, the successes have not stopped coming: victories in the biggest one day classics and Monuments, leader’s jerseys in all three Grand Tours and top spot in the UCI WorldTour Individual Rider Ranking three years running. With such a legacy to build upon, we set the bar high for our new development. Absolute performance across all areas. No shortcuts. No compromises.
The Aeroad CF SLX fuses together the very best aerodynamics with the classic parameters that make a winning race bike: maximum stiffness, lightness, exceptional handling and sovereign comfort. With an aggressive riding position achieved through our Pro Geometry and comprehensive integration of key components, such as the cockpit, seatpost and brakes to further optimise aerodynamics, the Aeroad CF SLX succeeds in taking overall road bike performance to a higher level.
"The AEROAD CF SLX is in a sense a synthesis of our Ultimate CF SLX and the Speedmax CF, and combines the advantages of both bikes."
"By design, the whole shape of the bike becomes a functional surface through systematic aerodynamic effects. Design and aerodynamics have to accompany each other perfectly."
"At 45 km/h aerodynamic drag causes 90% of all resistance working against the rider."
"The cockpit has a massive influence on aerodynamics because it is at the leading edge of the bike."
"We wanted to build a bike which is powerful and light enough to break away from the peloton, attack at climb, or even win a sprint."
"Our WorldTour teams plan to win the biggest races in the world with this bike. We want to satisfy their high requirements with our product."
"The new design is confirmed by the results of multiple wind tunnel tests. Each surface on the bike was shaped for optimal aerodynamic performance in its individual role, as well as in its role as a part the entire system."
"Each bike part is important – frame, fork, seatpost and aero-cockpit. When you're fighting for every single Watt, every part of the bike needs to work in your favor."
