Canyon Speedmax Disc
Quote | Reply
While it's a pretty safe bet that Canyon have a new Speedmax disc coming (hopefully within shorter time than the new Aeroad Disc ;) ), I don't think we've seen any live footage of it (except Frodo riding on one front shot in a recent Canyon video ad).

So I have no idea whether the pic is not staged, but @ WW someone posted of what's supposed to be an unpainted unassembled new Speedmax disc frame.

----------------------------
Need more W/CdA.

Those seat stays are something else.
Looks like the frame behind might be an aeroad as those seat stays arent so blockey

Most triathlon bike seat stays are pretty blocky, rigid, and excessive looking relative to road bikes which look sleeker. Personally I don't see that they look different than the industry standard.

Look closer, it's there. Should be announced fairly soon, and I'd imagine it will show up at Le Tour in a few weeks time. They actually had accidentally posted the manual online a few months back, but it's since been removed.

Looks like a Chinese open mold frame.

Though they all probably look similar without any livery.

That head tube has a funny sharp edge, unless it is a shadow or seam in the carbon. No idea how that is supposed to work.

That picture is not the same as the bike in the Canyon Youtube ad. The ad has higher seat stays and a rounded head tube.

I don't doubt the claims about the manual and any announcements,or that a Speedmax disc is coming...but I don't see how you can definitively say in that vid that it is a disc bike from the split second head on shot at 0:45. As much as I want to see a rotor, I see little dark spots at the fork crown which could be hidden brake pads. What am I missing?

It appears to have a mono raiser, cup style arm pads and the aerobar extension a la Trek

The photo of the bare frame looks like it's lost is stowage in front of the seat post, and the clip form the Youtube advert with the monoriser suggests the in-built hydration bottle is also a goner (this is purely speculation - this could be the CF rather than CF SX equivalent).

But if that is the case, then it has lost one of its really big selling points. The integration is what got me over the line with the SLX rather than a P5/other equivalents.

Agree with you completely. This is what sold me on it. If the new one has discs but no box and no water, I'd rather keep my existing SLX.

If, as others have suggested, this will launch at the pro TT-bike then a lot of initial media will be in a UCI-legal guise. They may also make a integrated Tri version of the bike but the initial launch will be void of integrated bottles etc.

I wouldn't worry (though it seems you're not allowed to be interested anyway...)

Surely that's the trickle down version. The P-series equivalent for Canyon. Not a very attractive head tube/stem area. Looks like some kind of storage above the bottom bracket as well.

Shimano mechanical with sram hydro brakes, like the mix and match you used to get on a lot of mountain bikes. If this is a spec choice it's good to see they've done this rather than the bulky and heavy trp hydros. Shimano still only do the expensive DA di2 hydro as far as I'm aware.

The headtube/stem reminds me a bit of the entry level speed concepts trek used to do with a standard stem, or the lower level felt IAs. Can't quite tell on where the front brake hose enters but if it's directly in front of the headtube then into the fork they've done a better job than the p series, less cable exposed but still easy to remove stem and bars for packing or stem length change.

I wonder if the slx model will utilise same frame but with a different integrated stem and bar that fills the gap, hides the cable and adds hydration, which could also be an option to upgrade to later? Makes much more business sense to only need to mould the one frame. Wait and see I guess.

It makes sense with a number of Canyon athletes co-sponsored with Swiss side that the latest gen Swisside / DT Swiss wheels are disc only.

Wonder if Swisside contributed to the new bikes design.

What do you think the chances are that they show it tomorrow during the World TT Championships. Obviously without all the storage but this could what they are waiting for.

Any new leaks on the more top end version of this bike maybe?

They are releasing the new Aeroad on October 6th so they may release with that due to the aero nature of both bikes or wait 2 weeks after like they did between the new Ultimate the released the other day.

5-11 Oct is the Ironman VR world championships celebration so we may see something there.
