In the first of our bikes of 2017 is the Canyon Endurance CF SLX Disc. We all love bikes right? We might not be able to buy or ride them all but every year a raft of wonderful production machines are on offer, some rad, some bad. We are going to take our pic, based on what looks rad. Be it some nifty feature, overall look, or potential purpose.
With the Canyon Endurance CF SLX Disc it’s basically the overall appearance that has us. Especially the red 8.0 version fitted with Ultegra Di2 giving it some very clean lines, with all internal cabling. But most of all the vibrant red. At an eye watering £4,499 price tag, it’s probably only dentists and lawyers buying these machines but, we can only admire that dentist zipping along on his jazzy red carbon beauty.
Love or hate discs on road bikes, they give a certain look to a bike, clearing the stays and fork bridges of clutter and distributing it at the centre of the wheel, personally I dig it. And there is no denying, they stop well.
Canyon have done well to market the bike with it’s online presence and it’s worth having an explore of the landing page for the Endurance range with it’s videos and marketing talk.
The range as a whole is worth considering, as the lower CF models, whilst not having disc, offer much better bang for the buck. Or you could look at the AL options, one being in the lovely vibrant red, same as the CF SLX disc.
Overall an impressive machine, even at the price (which is much the same across the competitor’s line ups this year).
