Canyon bicycles teamed up with famed electronic group Kraftwerk to create the Ultimate CF SLX Kraftwerk bicycle.
This extremely limited run of 21 technically-accomplished machines pays homage to Kraftwerk’s iconic aesthetic and harks to the pioneering sounds they produced, music that has paved the way for so many others to follow.
The Ultimate CF SLX Kraftwerk is at the forefront of performance – a Grand Tour-winning frameset combined with SRAM’s wireless eTap groupset and Zipp’s all-conquering 303 Firecrest wheels. Inspired by the band’s famous live appearances and absolute technical precision, the Ultimate CF SLX Kraftwerk sports a hand-finished design that echoes their clarity and visionary approach.
The unique geometric pattern, originating from Kraftwerk founder Ralf Hütter’s own design, is one of the most complex ever applied by the Canyon Design Team Each reflective strip is cut-to-measure and then hand-laid with care and precision, a process that takes over seven hours per frameset. Once complete, a clear coat is added to guarantee longevity and deliver extra durability on the road for timeless good looks – after all, this bike is best enjoyed from the saddle, not from outside a trophy case. Before final assembly, each frame, fork and cockpit pass through the in-house CT scanner in Koblenz to ensure absolute structural integrity.
That way, you get a bike that is not only one-of-a-kind, but can also be counted on for top-level performance every time you ride. Every owner of an Ultimate CF SLX Kraftwerk will receive their bike in a specially designed Canyon Bike Guard also containing a celebratory commemorative pack.
All this results in a special edition Ultimate CF SLX as unique as Kraftwerk itself.
