Canyon’s Ultimate CFR Is Cycling’s Lightest Production Disc Brake Bike

Aug 12, 2020

The quest for the ultimate road bike is ongoing, and for some riders, the term “best” might be somewhat subjective. When speaking on the quintessential platform, does one focus on weight, ergonomics, looks, or actual capability? Regardless of your opinion, Canyon has created the sport’s lightest production disc brake bicycle — the Ultimate CFR.

In terms of raw capability, the Ultimate CFR is already a step above the competition due to Canyon’s high-end inclusions, including a fluid Campagnolo Super Record EPS groupset (or Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 groupset for the lesser model) DT Swiss peripherals, and Schmolke 1K carbon seat posts. But what makes the Ultimate CFR truly interesting is its high-modulus carbon fiber frame and fork, which adopt a specialized blend of tensile fibers for unparalleled speed and adaptability. After gaining permission for use via the Japanese Ministry of Defense, the brand set out to integrate the carbon blend into its newest road-faring platforms, the Ultimate CFR Disc EPS, and Ultimate CFR Disc Di2 — both of which tip the scales at under 15 pounds. Head to Canyon’s website to pick up the Ultimate CFR Disk EPS ($9,010) or the Ultimate CFR Disk Di2 ($7,700) just in time for the winter riding season.

Purchase: $7,700+
