Canyon has updated its range of Speedmax time trial/triathlon bikes, which now feature hydraulic disc brakes and even more advanced storage integration, as well as improved aerodynamics.
According to Canyon, the range now consists of 11 models, with prices starting from 3700€ for the Speedmax CF 7 Disc and up to 12,000€ for the top-spec Speedmax CFR Disc AXS.
Designed in collaboration with the aerodynamic experts at Swiss Side, the flagship Speedmax CFR is the result of no fewer than 456 computational fluid dynamics (CFD) tests, alongside 97 wind tunnel tests during its development.
In the end, Canyon claims the new bike is 9 to 10 watts more aerodynamically efficient at 45/kph across a range of yaw angles from -20 to +20 degrees than the outgoing model.
Canyon says the Speedmax’s improved aerodynamic signature is mainly the result of revised tube shapes and profiles, along with better storage integration.
Other key features to the updated Speedmax models include a new mono-riser, fully adjustable aero handlebar system, which now comprises a single aero extension that splits off into two adjustable hand grips. Moreover, a “Fitting Kit” provides a range of spacers and hardware that allows the height difference between the armrests and the base bar to be set between 0mm and 110mm, while the extensions and armrests can be tilted an extra 3.5 or 7 degrees from their standard 5 degrees of tilt.
Also, customers can choose between a flat or riser base bar, while models within the CF range come with Profile Design’s Aeria Ultimate integrated handlebar set-up.
Additionally, while the CFR and CF SLX framesets feature integrated storage for tools, food and hydration, the less expensive CF framesets come with customized storage boxes on the top tube and bottom bracket area.
Lastly, Canyon has chosen to mix tire sizes across its complete bike builds, selecting 25mm up front and 28mm for the rear for optimal balance and ride quality, while the extra-small sizes drop to 650b wheels.
Here’s how the updated Speedmax range breaks down:
