Canyon Inflite CF SLX 9.0 Pro Race | Cyclocross Special | Cycling Weekly

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:

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.

Canyon specs 650b rather than 700c wheels to the two smallest sizes of the Inflite CF SLX. This keeps the wheelbase and trail short so that riders from 1.52m to 1.66m get the same sharp handling as the taller ones.
