The Tour de France is the most important cycling race, a sporting event followed around the world and the most popular Grand Tour. Three weeks in which everything is possible, glory, suffering, heroic performances and new talents.
Ultimate CF SLX 8 Disc TDF. a special edition
Just in time for the 108th edition of the race, Canyon presents a limited edition model with a frame that has already won three Grand Tours and two World Championships, now in a unique color and design, the Ultimate CF SLX 8 Disc TDF.
The design includes card deck motifs, referring to the joker obtained by the Alpecin-Fenix and Arkéa-Samsic teams to participate this year in the Tour de France.
The joker, the only card in sight in the deck, is a symbol of good luck. There is also the flag of Brittany, which pays tribute to the starting region of this year's race.
The great start from Brest is especially significant for the Arkéa-Samsic team, which is based in the city of Rennes.
During the race, Elie Gesbert, a member of the team and born in Brittany, will ride with the Ultimate CF SLX TDF frame to try his luck on the most famous mountain passes in the world, such as the Tourmalet or Mont Ventoux.
The design of this limited edition Tour de France also wants to pay tribute to the long tradition of card games within cycling culture.
Even in the days of Eddy Merckx's, professional racers spent many hours playing cards between stages and used expressions that are also used in bicycle racing, such as putting on a poker face, having an ace up their sleeve or bluffing.
All components of the Ultimate CF SLX TDF are of premium quality.
- SRAM Force eTap AXS 12-speed groupset with disc brakes and integrated potentiometer.
- Ergonomic and lightweight Canyon CP10 carbon cockpit.
- DT Swiss ARC 1400 Dicut carbon wheels with 50mm profile.
