It comes as no surprise that performance continues to be the central topic of any road cycling discussion. And with good reason: At the end of the day, it all comes down to performance: Winning or losing. Success or failure. Triumph or disappointment. And that is not only the case for professional cyclists like Alejandro Valverde, Kasia Niewiadoma, Nairo Quintana, or Lourdes Oyarbide. Their victories may be in the limelight, but that doesn’t mean they’re more worthy. They share the same path, the same relentless hunt for greater performance. It is what unites each and every road cycling enthusiast who shares that ambition of challenging themselves and pushing their limits. Of getting the most out of themselves and their equipment.
For road cyclists who expect nothing but the best of themselves and their bike, for whom KOM, QOM and PB are more than just letters, the Ultimate represents Canyon’s answer to an important decision: It unites light weight, stiffness, and comfort at such a high level that pros and amateurs around the world place their trust in this bike on their hunt for their personal victories and triumphs.
For 2021, the Ultimate is back with all of its tried and tested strengths plus a fresh look: After the successful launch of the Canyon Factory Racing models (CFR), the Ultimate CF SL, CF SL Disc, and CF SLX Disc platforms are lined up for 29 September. Newcomers to the world of climbing can once again discover the Ultimate with the CF SL 7, which offers rim brakes and a mechanical Shimano 105 groupset for €1,699*. The wide range of disc brake models starts with the Ultimate CF SL 7 Disc and the women-specific Ultimate CF SL 7 WMN Disc for €2,199*, both featuring Shimano 105 components as well. Weighing in at only 820 grams (size M), the SLX frame at the heart of the Ultimate range is available in several configurations ranging from €4,999* (CF SLX 8 Disc eTap) to €7,199* (CF SLX 9 Disc eTap).
With Light Blue, True Grey, Rainbow White, and Non Blue, the 2021 season brings a range of new and exciting colourways that underline the classic style and characteristics of the Ultimate. Fans of the ultimate understatement will continue to opt for the popular Stealth design. All 15 unisex and WMN models of the Ultimate CF are available exclusively at canyon.com starting 29 September.
