If you've been eyeing a new Canyon Ultimate and you'll be in Yorkshire for the World Road Race Championships, then you can go home with a new bike!
Canyon is going to to be up at the race, pitching their tent in the UCI Fanzone at The Stray, Harrogate. They'll also be at The Starling Independent Bar Café Kitchen, so you can celebrate purchasing your new bike with a coffee and a slab of cake.
The bike in question is the Ultimate CF SL Disc 8.0. They'll only have 25 bikes with them and the cost is £2119, a significant saving on the £2349 RRP. They're running a first-come-first-served sale and once they're gone, that's it.
The Ultimate CF SL Disc 8.0 is a lightweight climbing bike that has been kissed by the aero brush. The tube shapes have been made slightly more aerodynamic to help you cut through the wind when riding on flat and rolling roads.
Shimano provides the drivetrain and stopping power in the form of its Ultegra R8020 disc groupset. You get slick mechanical shifting along with powerful and easily modulated hydraulic disc brakes. To help you climb efficiently, the cassette is the 11-30T option.
Wheels come from DT Swiss. Their P 1800 Spline hoops are tubeless-ready, 23mm deep and weigh in at 1675g. These are wrapped in Continental GP4000S II 25mm tyres.
Up front, more aero trickery has been employed with the Canyon H36 Aerocockpit CF saving a few extra watts. A Canyon S13 VCLS CF will help you stay comfortable on the Fizik Antares R5 saddle.
Son of a Marathon runner, Nephew of a National 24hr Champion, the racing genetics have completely passed him by. After joining the road.cc staff in 2016 as a reviewer, Liam quickly started writing feature articles and news pieces. After a little time living in Canada, where he spent most of his time eating poutine, Liam returned with the launch of DealClincher, taking over the Editor role at the start of 2018. At the weekend, Liam can be found racing on the road both in the UK and abroad, though he prefers the muddy fields of cyclocross. To date, his biggest race win is to the front of the cafe queue.
