When new women’s UCI pro team Canyon first unveiled their team kit, and brilliantly matching bikes, the cycling industry immediately declared unanimous adoration. Cyclists, men and women, were hugely taken by the matt black design with its spashes or pink and green – and the obvious question was ‘can we buy it?’
After much anticipation, Canyon//SRAM decorated versions of Canyon’s Ultimate CF SLX women’s bike – the very machine ridden by the girls on the team- are now on sale.
The bike currently shares identical frame geometry to the unisex Ultimate CF SLX – ridden by UCI men’s Team Katusha, though the contact points have been adjusted to create a better fit.
Canyon//SRAM recently took on ex-pro Katrin Neumann who is working to develop a women’s specific frame based on data from customers and feedback from the team – we interviewed her to get some more detail on the developments here.
