ALL-NEW CANYON WMN MODELS RAISE THE BAR FOR FEMALE RIDERS

5th May 2017

KOBLENZ, EMBARGO UNTIL 11 PM CET 04.05.2017 — Certain facts are too big to ignore. In 2017, there are more women riding bikes than ever. So why can’t they take advantage of the same wide range of choice as their male riding counterparts? In the past, issues of “what women want” and “what women need” have been over-complicated, often leading to watered-down products with performance attributes that miss the mark.

The drive behind Canyon creating a whole new line of road bikes for women was simple: we wanted to set the new benchmark. What we have come up with are three distinct new WMN models designed and engineered 100% around female riders. Whether first-timer or seasoned competitor, with the Endurace WMN AL, Endurace WMN CF SL and Ultimate WMN CF SLX, we can finally offer women the choice they deserve.

 

From geometry and handling, to construction and aerodynamics, the new Canyon WMN models go a step further than anything done before to truly deliver better performance for female riders. Optimised geometries make it more natural for women to achieve riding positions previously developed around male riders. A new 3XS frame size covers all riders from 152 cm tall, and also means Canyon now delivers one of the broadest size ranges of any manufacturer in the industry.

 

To guarantee the best handling across the spectrum, we engineered size 2XS and the new 3XS frames around 650B wheels. This new standard transforms the riding experience for smaller riders meaning they can enjoy the snap and agility all of the best road bikes should possess like never before. For riders who seek extra performance gains, the Ultimate WMN CF SLX offers enhanced aerodynamics over unisex models and is also Canyon’s lightest Road Disc frame to-date at a mere 765 g (size XS). All models come complete with the latest Flat Mount standard hydraulic disc brakes and 12 mm through axles for enhanced control in real-world conditions. Finishing it off, the new Ultimate WMN CF SLX, Endurace WMN CF SL and Endurace WMN AL all sport a sharp, unique design character to set them apart out on the roads.
