Thanks to feedback from – and successes of – world champions Mathieu van der Poel and Ceylin del Carmen Alvarado, Canyon is refreshing the Inflite cyclocross and gravel bike lineup.
To start the Canyon Inflite CF SLX, CF SL, and aluminum AL SLX come outfitted with the latest component groupsets from Shimano and SRAM.
The pro-level Inflite CF SLX 9 Team ($4,499) comes equipped with the SRAM Force eTap AXS group and rolls on Schwalbe X-One Allround TLE 33mm tires wrapped around Reynolds AR41 DB wheels. What really stands out though, is that the SLX 9 Team is now decked out in Alpecin-Fenix livery.
The Inflite CF SL 8 ($3,299), at 7.9kg, gets a SRAM Force CX1 group, Reynolds AR41 DB wheels, and Schwalbe X-One Allround TLE 33mm skinwall tires. There’s even a nice new Selle Italia SLS saddle to sit on. The Inflite CF SL 8 frame is finished in stealth or hot mint colors.
The Canyon Inflite CF SL 7 ($2,299) gets a very polarized colorway option, you can choose from stealth or Alpecin-Fenix replica colors. The entry-level carbon bike is outfitted with a SRAM Rival drivetrain, Selle Italia’s ModelX saddle, and DT Swiss C1800 Spline DB wheels with Schwalbe X-One Allround TLE 33 mm Skinwall tires. All told, even the entry-level bike comes in a sleek 8.2kg package.
For budget riders and/or lovers of aluminum frames, the Canyon Inflite AL 6 ($1,699) also gets an Alpecin-Fenix replica scheme or a race black look. The bike is rounded out with a SRAM Apex group.
All three bikes are available in sizes 3XS, 2XS, XS, S, M, L, XL, 2XL.
