Canyon Aeroad CFR Disc Di2 review

The brand new Aeroad improves in almost every area

Cycling Weekly Verdict

The new Aeroad CFR Disc Di2 is an impressive machine and exceeds the 'old' Aeroad in every aspect. It's rapid and is pleasingly comfortable for such an aero focussed race bike. A couple of years ago it would have achieved the perfect ten but Canyon's rivals have been busy and the Aeroad no longer stands out as being the best in the game - there are better.
