Expirience with the Canyon Lux CF SLX 9 TEAM

Canyon Lux CF SLX 9 TEAM Review The Lux CF SLX 9 TEAM has been on the market unchanged for a number of years, and yet it is one of the fastest race fullys in the world. Most recently, Andres Seewald even became marathon world champion with it. Certainly also thanks to the excellent rear triangle. We really liked the jaw-dropping weight of the complete bike. With 10,2 kg, the Canyon Fully is a real lightweight. Canyon is taking no risks when it comes to its bike handling. The moderate geometry data conveys a balanced handling. Well trained athletes are likely to really enjoy the sporty seating position. If you love crisp downhill runs, there are other Racebike around under 8000 Euro that would suit you better. Canyon is installing only absolutely high-quality shifting components. With 6 years the warranty is another neat feature. Check the size chart exactly before buying: the Racebike of Canyon sizing runs big.
