220’s second day at Eurobike was, naturally, all about the bikes, as we got all the info on the latest version of the record-breaking Canyon Speedmax and Parlee’s TTR, the first tri bike with disc brakes and through-axles.


Canyon have at long last announced the release of the Speedmax CF this week, a more accessible (and more affordable) version of the Speedmax CF SLX rode to glory by Jan Frodeno at Challenge Roth earlier this summer. 

Marketing manager Nick Allen tells us the bike will be available at numerous price points, starting at €2300 specced with Mavic wheels and Shimano 105 groupset – though still a big investment for some it means a bike proven to be one of the world’s fastest will be accessible to the mass-market, with the direct-mount rear brake as opposed to integrated on the SLX version costing just 0.6 watts per hour according to Allen.
