Three Grand Tour victories, two World Championship titles, countless stage and GC wins at the world’s most prestigious races – the Canyon Ultimate’s palmarès speaks for itself. Since the first generation launched back in 2004, the Ultimate has been and remains the absolute pinnacle of Canyon’s road performance range – a pure road bike made for racing. Its unsurpassed handling and ride feel make the Ultimate the choice of hundreds of thousands of riders around the world, from ambitious amateurs to the world’s top pros.

Now, it’s time for something new. A new era of pure road performance. Introducing the new Canyon Ultimate family, with eleven bikes available across three platforms.

“With the new Ultimate, we wanted to make something that fans of classic road race bikes would love. After a painstaking development process in collaboration with our pro riders, we’re proud to present the next evolution of the Ultimate. A timeless design that hits the perfect balance of lightness, stiffness, aerodynamics, comfort, and toughness,” explains Dr Florian Imgrund, Canyon Global Category Director – Road, on the design philosophy behind the Ultimate.

 Pro teams have already been riding the new Ultimate since the beginning of the season – with two stage wins at the Vuelta a España in the hands of Alpecin-Deceuninck rider Jay Vine, the bike has already made its mark at the highest stages of racing even before its official market launch.

In comparison to the previous generation, the new Ultimate improves upon its predecessor in a number of key areas:

 Incredible comfort: improved ergonomics and more tyre clearance – room for up to 32 mm rubber.

Improved aerodynamics: reduced drag thanks to optimisations made with aero experts Swiss Side – saving 10 watts for the frameset alone.

Cutting-edge integration: invisible integration of cables and lines, all in a user-friendly setup.

Easy fitting: cockpit with simple height and width adjustment, no steerer tube cutting needed, easier to transport.

Low weight: only 6.3 kg (Ultimate CFR Di2: excluding pedals and accessories, size M), even with extra reinforcement in key high-stress areas.

A complete performance package, it does the Ultimate an injustice to pigeonhole it ‘just’ as a climber’s bike or say it’s only for pros looking to shave every possible gram. It’s much more than that. This is the right bike for everyone drawn to the purity and clarity of the Ultimate’s aesthetics, but still who demand cutting-edge performance technology and performance features. And everyone looking for a bike that’s flat-out fun to ride on any route you point it at. In short, this is a road bike for everyone.
