Ultimate CF 9.0 Pro

Roadbike 04/2012

16 carbon best-sellers stepped up to the plate in the Roadbike test, all in the price category of around 2500 €. The testers evaluated weight, equipment, value-for-money, frame and fork design and not least the level of comfort.

Every test bike was put through its paces in the test lab and the results obtained on bottom bracket, headset and lateral stiffness counted 50% towards the final overall mark. During the on-road tests the bikes' handling was analyzed by various test riders.

The Canyon Ultimate CF 9.0 Pro impressed right across the board and secured a clear test victory!

In this price category Canyon offers the Campagnolo Chorus groupset and standard Ultimate CF frame, which is somewhat heavier than the SLX version. However the frame and fork still weigh in at less than 1400g which only a few others in the test field can match. This is an outstanding weight in this price category! The Ultimate CF is also outstanding in numerous other technical aspects. In the on-road tests the bike was also no less impressive. It was in particular the unbridled forward thrust and razor-sharp handling which impressed the Roadbike testers. Test victory for the Canyon Ultimate CF 9.0 Pro.

Canyon wins yet another test thanks to a top frame, superb equipment and scintillating performance.
