The Red Dot Design Awards put out a press release today that seems to have leaked something new from Canyon, a carbon fiber version of the popular aluminum gravel Inflite. The new offering is dubbed the Inflite CF SLX and it looks amazing. The new, yet to be released, bike was awarded a Best of the Best 2017 award from Red Dot. The award highlights unique designs and best-in-class products.
The images clearly show a bike that’s been designed to not only be ridden on gravel but one that can be comfortably shouldered for hucking. The bike also appears to be sporting some Schwalbe’s X-One All Around tubeless tires and a Sram Force 1 drivetrain.
