The Canyon Ultimate Artist Edition range blurs the boundaries between world-class speed and stunning style, combining the Ultimate’s race-proven performance with artwork from renowned designers.
A special limited-edition Ultimate from industrial designer Konstantin Grcic. Styled in Grcic’s typical progressive style, this bike looks like nothing else out there, with iridescent elements that colourfully shimmer in the light. The highlight: for the first time ever on a Canyon bike, Grcic puts the iconic Canyon downtube lettering on centre stage by overlaying it with rectangular special-effect decals. The combination of Grcic’s eye-catching – and at times radical – design with the Ultimate’s classic road racing performance creates a truly unique bicycle. The Ultimate CF SLX 8 Disc LTD.
With decades at the forefront of industrial design, Grcic has a range of iconic, award-winning creations in his portfolio – many of his works are part of the permanent collections of major design museums around the world, including the MoMA in New York and the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris. All while heading up a studio making a mark in the fields of industrial, exhibition, and furniture design. And now, Grcic has turned his hand to the world of cycling. The result is something truly special.
Canyon Ultimate CF SLX 8 Disc LTD Details
Daring, unique, extraordinary: this is the first-ever bike we’ve released with the Canyon lettering covered over, so it’s not completely legible. But it absolutely doesn’t have to be, says Konstantin Grcic. With aesthetics like no other road bike out there, this Canyon Ultimate stands out from the crowd with its unmistakable, striking design.
With its special frame decals, this limited-edition Ultimate is anything but mainstream. Iridescent adhesive tape makes an optical phenomenon where the surface of the frame appears in different colours depending on the viewer’s perspective.
A Top-End Frame with Canyon Design DNA
The clean, dynamic frame design is bursting with Canyon design DNA. It’s painstakingly sculpted to deliver top stiffness-to-weight while maintaining excellent aerodynamic performance.
