The Canyon Endurace range is all good, but I feel the chart-topping Endurace CF SLX in this Di2 spec gives the best value and the highest level of pure riding pleasure. It has hit the balance between a fun, fast ride with great compliance, all in a lightweight package and was a true companion on my rides this year – a thoroughly deserved spot in this years Editor's Choice.

I've tested the Endurace in a number of different guises, from the entry-level aluminium version, disc and rim as well as the frameset just below this one, which is called CF SL as opposed to the higher-end CF SLX frameset here.
