AEROAD CF SLX

Men’s frame only

With multiple Tour de France stage wins and Monuments like the Tour of Flanders already under its belt, the second generation Aeroad CF SLX has taken the success of the original Aeroad cf to the next level. Canyon’s innovative Trident 2.0 tube profiles cut through the air to give a real world speed advantage, while the Pro Geometry provides a low and aggressive riding position for unrivalled aero efficiency. Stiff for the finish line sprint, light for climbing ease and compliant on rough roads, the Aeroad CF SLX is the complete aero race bike. Get the competitive edge you’re after.

Ultimate CF SLX (Canyon//SRAM spec)

Women’s frame only

The much-lauded Canyon Ultimate CF SLX is available to hire in the team colours of the Canyon//SRAM women’s racing team. This is the exact model specification ridden by Tiffany Cromwell, Hannah Barnes, and the Canyon-SRAM team. The bike features a SRAM Red groupset and Zipp 303 wheelset and has been designed to combine low weight and maximum stiffness with outstanding ride quality. The Ultimate CF SLX offers a Sport Pro geometry which allows the rider to achieve the ideal position for optimum performance and comfort for hours in the saddle, regardless of the type of riding you plan to do. The team version is finished in a colour scheme consisting of multi-coloured streaks on a black background, which were inspired by layers of hazard tape used to mark out boundaries at races.

Is there anything else I should know?

As always, RCC members should follow the rules of the road. Every effort is made to maintain the RCC bikes in working order, but members should test the brakes, tyres and components of the bicycle prior to riding. If something isn’t working, don’t worry about fixing it – instead, contact the coordinator who will arrange for the bike to be fixed by a qualified mechanic. We ask you to not leave an RCC bike unattended, locked or unlocked. Members are responsible for bikes for the entire loan period, and any damage that may occur to the bicycle or themselves.
