The past 12 or so months have seen a seemingly endless flurry of new all-round road race bikes that added aero to an existing focus on weight and stiffness.
And while just about every major brand has a fresh bike that fits the seemingly new trend, Canyon’s current generation of the Ultimate Disc came out back in 2017. However, the consumer-direct German bike company was one of the first to aero-ise its all-round racer, and all along the Ultimate has been the type of bike that many others are only now introducing to the market.
And so while our Field Test in Victoria’s High Country sought to pull together a number of hot new road bikes, the well-priced Canyon Ultimate CF SL still stood as an intriguing prospect. And as our testing confirmed, this bike doesn’t feel old at all.
