Canyon has caused a notable ripple in cycling’s direct-to-consumer market over the past decade, providing riders with beautifully-crafted platforms that can be ordered, built, and shipped directly to your doorstep. Aside from revolutionizing the modern landscape for high-end bicycle acquisition, the German company has decided to challenge the industry’s road-faring leaders with its newest lightweight platform, the carbon fiber EVO.
The Canyon CF EVO enters the fray as one of the industry’s most quintessential carbon fiber variants. It’s nothing short of miraculous — implementing a high-performance SRAM RED eTap AXS groupset, Zipp NSW carbon wheels, and a CP20 Aerocockpit that’s among the lightest available. Wireless, 12-speed shifting makes road-racing and hill traversal as effortless as it’s ever been — but if the bike’s 13-pound orientation leaves you barreling down an incline at breakneck speed, don’t fret — a high-end THM Fibula brake (coupled with SRAM’s dependable RED eTap AXS 12s lever) will bring you to a stop with relative ease. A full-carbon EVO frame, F37 CF EVO fork, and S14 VCLS 2.0 CF seat post keep every aspect of the EVO light, stiff, and performance-minded — resulting in a beautifully-imagined road-racer that’s primed and ready to steal the crown. The CF EVO is available now via Canyon’s website for $11,000.
