The third stage of this year’s Tour de France has provided one of the closest looks yet at Canyon’s redesigned Aeroad aero road bike with both the Arkea-Samsic and Movistar teams both racing the as-yet-unannounced machine.
Canyon has maintained the overall profile of the existing Aeroad (including its nearly-level top tube, dropped seatstays, and shielded rear wheel) but has turned things up a notch everywhere else. This latest version features notably deeper truncated-airfoil tube profiles throughout for reduced aerodynamic drag, with the down tube, head tube, seat tube, seatstays, and — perhaps most dramatically — the seatpost all displaying far more aggressive shapes than before. Cabling is now fully internal, too, with the lines all passing inside the brand-new, one-piece carbon fiber aero-profile cockpit before snaking their way into the top of the head tube.
