Despite having the Canyon Aeroad at his disposal, Quintana is a natural climber so opts to solely to ride the Canyon Ultimate CF SLX. Many people have suggested that Quintana would be better off riding a Canyon Aeroad because it’s more aerodynamic, although we’re sure Quintana opts for the Ultimate for a multitude of other reasons, not least because it’s lighter.

The bike is fitted with a Power2Max power meter, Campagnolo Super Record EPS groupset with 172.5 cranks and 54/42 chainset paired with an 11-29 cassette. To match he has Campagnolo Bora 50 tubular wheels.
