Ale­jan­dro Valverde’s Mo­vis­tar Canyon Ul­ti­mate CF SLX

Cycling Weekly - - Tech -

There’s no change to the Ul­ti­mate CF SLX for Mo­vis­tar ex­cept to its paint. The Span­ish team sports a lighter blue fad­ing into dark blue for 2018 and the green that was paired with the mid­night blue has dis­ap­peared al­to­gether.

While the other Canyon spon­sored team, Ka­tusha, are the only team us­ing SRAM groupsets, Mo­vis­tar’s bikes are equipped with Cam­pag­nolo com­po­nents. The leg­endary Ital­ian brand sup­plies its flag­ship Su­per Record EPS groupset and also pro­vides the wheels, with the lo­gos matched to the new Mo­vis­tar sig­na­ture blue. Con­ti­nen­tal is another of Mo­vis­tar’s spon­sors and sup­plies its Com­pe­ti­tion tubu­lars, long-time pro favourites.

Pow­er2­max power me­ters re­place the Cam­pag­nolo spi­der.

Bri­tish rider Alex Dowsett has

left Mo­vis­tar for Ka­tusha this year but still gets to race on this bike, plus the Aeroad CF and the TT. Team leader Ale­jan­dro Valverde re­turned to rac­ing in Ma­jorca for the first time since his crash in the 2017 Tour stage one time trial.
