Canyon has just launched a new time trial bike, also intended for use in triathlons. The new Canyon Speedmax CF is designed to be a more affordable version of the Canyon Speedmax CF SLX, which starts at £4399. By comparison, the new CF will start at £2200.

The Canyon Speedmax CF and CF SLX look remarkably similar, but there are some key differences that account for the price difference. Firstly, the cockpit of the CF features less integration, but much greater adjustability. Although marginally less aero, this does give greater flexibility and practicality to the consumer.
