Canyon Unveils New Speedmax CFR TT Time Trial Bike

Canyon has unveiled its new Speedmax CFR TT time trial bike ahead of this weekend’s Giro d’Italia, which will be ridden under the auspices of teams Movistar, Alpecin-Fenix, Arkea-Samsic and Canyon-Sram during the Italian Grand Tour’s opening prologue. 

Not surprisingly, the Speedmax CFR TT is all about cheating the wind, relying on revised tube profiles and extensive integration, while also stripping it of any features not primed for time-trialling (i.e. storage and nutrition boxes).

The new frame features shallower tube shapes on the down tube, bottom bracket, head tube junction and fork legs, resulting in both a better aerodynamic signature, while also satisfying the UCI’s equipment regulations this time around. 

According to Canyon, the Speedmax CFR TT fame weighs in at an impressive 1,030 grams in a size medium, while the fork tips the scales at 500 grams.

While the Speedmax CFR TT is only offered with disc brakes, Canyon claims it saves 2.7 watts in aerodynamic drag compared to the outgoing model. 

The Speedmax CFR TT comes in one build that includes Zipp’s Super 9 Disc rear and 808 front wheelset and a 1x setup of SRAM’s Red AXS eTap groupset with 54T aero chainring, while Canyon’s own HB0058 handlebar forms the base of the cockpit, adding Zipp’s Vuka carbon aero extensions and Ergon arm pads on top.

Additionally, the bike is even equipped with CeramicSpeed’s OSPW oversize pulley system.

The Speedmax CFR TT is available in three sizes, Small. Medium and Large, in a matte black finish, with pricing for the US market to be announced.
