Canyon Speed­max CF SLX 9.0

Wheels Asia - - Let’stalk:malaccaroadtrip -

The new Speed­max was de­signed with a much greater fo­cus on the big­ger triathlon mar­ket yet it re­mains UCI le­gal and it is faster than ever, sav­ing a claimed 4W at 45kph over the pre­vi­ous model. The big­gest change is to the ge­om­e­try, with a shorter top tube and much steeper seat tube that’s far more be­com­ing of a clock racer. Canyon teamed up with Er­gon for the new grips and arm pads, and with TRP on the re­vised brakes, which are eas­ier to set up, of­fer more feel and snap back away from the rims more ur­gently. The tri­an­gle at the base of the seat­post hides the clamp and also a com­part­ment for a spare tube, lever and a CO2 car­tridge, which will be as use­ful to time tri­al­lists in train­ing as to triath­letes. There are four mod­els and all run Shi­mano elec­tronic groupsets. This 9.0 comes with a 66mm Reynolds Strike wheelset and weighs 8.1kg. www.canyon.com
