To the delight of weight weenies everywhere, Canyon has unveiled its new Ultimate CF Evo Disc road bike that weighs in at a feathery sub 13 pounds.
According to Canyon, a new structure of ultra-high modulus and ultra-high tension carbon fiber, along with some small modifications such as a new integrated front derailleur mount and the use of a titanium seat clamp, bring the weight of the Ultimate CF Evo Disc’s frame down to an astonishingly light 641g.
Other small weight savings come courtesy of lighter aluminum thru-axles, a 120g seatpost from the carbon fiber experts at Schmolke and Selle Italia’s ridiculously light 61g SLR C59 full-carbon saddle.
The Ultimate CF Evo Disc also gets Canyon’s Evocockpit CP20 one-piece handlebar and stem combo that weighs a mere 270g, while hoops are provided via DT Swiss’ 25th Anniversary PRC 1100 Didcut carbon clinchers shod with Continental Grand Prix TT tires.
Shifting is provided by SRAM’s new Red eTap AXS 12 speed electronic groupset.
How much does the new Ultimate CF Evo Disc cost?
A hefty $11,500, which can be purchased directly from Canyon USA here
