KOBLENZ, 9. JULY 2019 |— The pursuit of lightness has always been, and shall remain, a key yardstick in road bike performance. Canyon is now proud to unveil the Ultimate CF Evo Disc – the latest, lightest disc brake variant of the Ultimate, one of the world’s most decorated road bikes. At under 6 kg (Size M, without pedals), Canyon’s latest lightweight engineering endeavour is one of the lightest disc brake road bikes ever created.
The Ultimate Evo Disc is built around a 641 g frame (not including small parts) and a 285 g fork: parts that push the boundaries of modern engineering. This extraordinary low weight is made possible by using a highly advanced layup that combines ultra-high modulus (UHM) and ultra-high tension (UHT) carbon fibres.
Another product of Canyon’s carbon construction expertise is the CP20 Evocockpit, which is 15% lighter than the CP10 Aerocockpit, tipping the scales at only 270 grams. For a truly unique riding experience, the Ultimate CF Evo Disc is also fitted with an array of premium components – SRAM’s latest RED eTap AXS 2×12 drivetrain, HRD disc brakes, limited 25th Anniversary Edition DT Swiss PRC 1100 Dicut db 24 wheels, 120 g Schmolke 1K carbon seatpost, and 61 g Selle Italia C59 saddle. An integrated carbon front derailleur mount, titanium screws, and specially manufactured aluminium through axles shave off additional grams, resulting in the impressive sub-6 kg total weight.
The Ultimate CF Evo Disc is available from Thursday, 11 July for €10,000 – exclusively at www.canyon.com.
