Canyon presents a limited edition of the Ultimate CF SLX designed by Tino Pohlmann

This Berlin-based artist has been photographing Canyon athletes and bikes in the Tour de France

The goal they have at Canyon is very clear, they want performance to be accessible to everyone.

 So now we take this idea one step further with the Canyon Ultimate Artist Edition 2020, specifically with the model Ultimate CF SLX 8 Disc LTD.

A high-end racing bike and a stunning work of art by artist Tino Pohlmann.

 Canyon y Tino Pohlmann They share a love for cycling, a common vision and a passion for design and aesthetics.

Since 2008, this Berlin-based artist has been photographing Canyon athletes and bikes at the Tour de France and other prestigious races around the world.

 The Ultimate LTD designed by Tino Pohlmann is the result of a history that connects bicycle design with the personal touch of the artist.

While reviewing some old work with Canyon graphic designer Lukas Beck, Pohlmann had an idea for a design for the Ultimate LTD.

This artist usually marks his most expressive images with red dots, to select negatives that you later convert to large format prints.

This ritual is the origin of the artwork that can be seen on the top tube of the Ultimate LTD, a series of negatives printed on a gray scale.

The red dot is the fundamental element of the design and is also placed between the seat tube, the seatstays and the rear wheel.
