Canyon Ultimate SLX: workshop gallery

Canyon Ultimate SLX: workshop gallery

In part two of our workshop galleries from RIDE #71, we take a look at the build of the Canyon Ultimate SLX.

This is a bike that arrives at a customer’s house in a box and it’s essentially ready to put together in around 15 minutes (if you take your time). And then it’s ready to race. (Or, of course, just ride at your leisure.)

For the review of our test bikes, however, we fully disassemble each bike and weigh every component before putting it back together – so what you see here is the bike as the customer is not likely to see it…

Was our mechanic, Jack Lynch impressed? Yes.

Below is an excerpt from Jack’s ‘Build Report’ of the Canyon Ultimate SLX in RIDE #71. You’ll also see 30 images from the workshop…

“The external finish on the Ultimate SF 9.0 Aero cannot be questioned. No aesthetic lines are out of place and the frame’s curvature is something to behold — everything seems to be in the right place. It is when looking inside the frame, however, that eyebrows are raised. Excess carbon and splinters are spotted wherever the frame lets light in which is never a good look. 

“The frame is light and the cables routed without issue so the internal flaws are obviously no bother to Canyon’s engineers.”
