The all-new light & aerodynamic Canyon Aeroad offers more CF carbon build options than ever before, adding a new ultra-premium Canyon Factory Racing CFR frameset to more standard CF SLX & CF SL frames. All generally share the same advanced, refined aero tech and race-ready geometry, but there are substantial differences from one level of carbon to the next. And pricing ranges wildly, almost three times higher at the top end than the entry-level, yet claimed weights range less than 700g across the board.

2021 Canyon Aeroad – Pricing, options & availability
In total eight disc brake only builds of the three Aeroad CF SL, CF SLX & CFR aero road bikes will be made available globally, with the US market getting six of those. SL bikes will stick with mechanical drivetrains and feature external routing, while the SLX & CFR builds all go electronic shifting for the fully integrated setups with the new adjustable Aerocockpit. The new CF SL frames feature 650b wheels on the two smallest sizes, while all sizes of the CF SLX & CFR bike feature 700c wheels only. In either case, all get 25mm tires up front & 28mm in the rear for the best blend of aero, comfort & control benefits.
2021 Canyon Aeroad CF SL
Three builds of the entry Aeroad CF SL are offered, with the refinements of the more expensive models, minus the full internal routing and new Aerocockpit. The CF SL also offers a smaller 3XS size, with the 3XS & 2XS rolling on 650b wheels.
The Aeroad CF SL 7 is the most affordable in the range at $4000 / 3300€, with Shimano 105 mechanical and Reynolds AR 58/62 carbon wheels for a weight of 7.95kg – in Stealth black & white or black & Racing Red paint.
The $4400 /3700€ Aeroad CF SL 8 steps it up to Ultegra mechanical with the same tubeless carbon Reynolds wheels to bring the weight down to a 7.78kg claim – in Stealth black & white or Off Blue.
Also for 3700€, an Aeroad CF SL 8 WMN version looks to get the exact same build, even down to the same cockpit contact points but up to a size M only, in its own different ‘Non Mint’ light blue paint job.
2021 Canyon Aeroad CF SLX
Stepping up to the 700c-only, CF SLX with internal routing are two complete builds.
The $6000 / 5000€ Aeroad CF SLX 8 Di2 gets Ultegra Di2, second-tier new DT Swiss ARC 1400 62mm aero wheels and the new CP18 Aerocockpit – at 7.57kg in Stealth black, bright Pro White, or even brighter ‘Blue in Blue’.
The $6000 but 5300€ Aeroad CF SLX 8 AXS gets a SRAM Force eTap AXS wireless drivetrain, with the same DT Swiss ARC 1400 62 wheels & Canyon Aerocockpit – at 7.73kg in Stealth or Pro White.
2021 Canyon Aeroad CFR
The Aeroad CFR is the fourth bike to get the new Canyon Factory Racing designation, the second CFR road bike. Meant to be their flagship ‘no compromises’ mix of premium carbon and premium builds, the CFR bikes are lighter & stiffer with top-tier electronic groupsets, power meters, and the fastest aero wheels.
This is also the only option for a frameset – the 4300€, 2950g kit with CFR frame & fork, seatpost, Aerocockpit, headset, AND SRAM Red eTap AXS levers with brakes pre-installed… available in classic Canyon stealth black-on-black, or in silvery tinted chrome.
The Shimano-spec Aeroad CFR Di2 sells for $9000 / 7500€ with Dura-Ace Di2 and a R9100P power meter, top-spec DT Swiss ARC 1100 62mm deep carbon tubeless aero wheels & the new Aerocockpit – at a weight of 7.26kg in stealth black or tinted chrome.
The SRAM-spec Aeroad CFR AXS sells for $9000 / 8000€ with wireless Red eTap including a carbon Red power meter crank, the DT ARC1100 wheels & Aerocockpit for a 7.37kg claimed weight – only in stealth black.
Lastly, a stealth black only Campagnolo-spec Aeroad CFR EPS sells for 9000€ with Super Record EPS (no power meter), Campy Bora One 50mm tubeless carbon wheels & the Aerocockpit at a weight of 7.32kg.
All of the new Aeroad options are available to order now.
