WHATEVER BIKE YOU RIDE, you will never be the same!…
The Spanish pro team is sticking with German CANYON, Ultimate CF SLX Most of the team, largely made up of climbers and Grand Tour hopefuls, appear to prefer the Ultimate, probably because it’s lighter and agile.
Nairo Quintana once told us at a Canyon bike launch that he wasn’t overly concerned about aerodynamics because he is sheltered by his team and the peloton a lot of the time.
The Canyon frames are once again decked out with Campagnolo Super Record EPS groupsets and matching Bora carbon fibre tubular wheels. Movistar is one of the few teams using the Italian company’s groupsets and wheels in a peloton largely dominated by Shimano.
