The Speedmax has earned rave reviews over the years, including a 93% rating in our review of the Speedmax CFE Disc eTap, with the bike being ridden by the likes of Jan Frodeno and Patrick Lange. In fact, the Speedmax CF SLX was ridden by the winner at Kona for five years on the bounce.

Thanks to the updates, triathletes can now ride a Speedmax with Shimano’s new flagship and second tier groupsets, giving them access to electronic shifting from the popular component manufacturer.

Aside from the new configurations, Canyon has also announced a new colourway for the CFR Disc LTD, which is the Silver Green you see below.
