The Inflite CF SLX is a dedicated race bike that Canyon says is “packed with features that slash seconds off every lap”. The German brand designed it to meet the demands of cyclo-cross riders from local leagues up to World Cup level — and despite its radical-looking frame it’s fully UCI legal. | Subscribe to Cycling Weekly here: https://www.youtube.com/user/CyclingWeekly1?sub_confirmation=1

The kinked top tube opens up the central triangle for easier shouldering, even on the smaller sizes. With a seatpost clamp under the front of the top tube, seatpost length is also increased for a smoother ride. The theory is that it’s easier to put the power down while staying in the saddle.
