    After years of teasing Canyon have released their full line of disc brakes equipped road bikes for the 2017 season.


    Last year the Koblenz based company was testing the waters with the Endurace CF SLX with 160mm rotors, and this year Canyon are not longer waiting on rule changes of the UCI and shift towards disc brakes almost entirely for their carbon road bikes for next year. The aerodynamic Aeroad, lightweight Ultimate and comfortable Endurace series now come with disc brakes and more tire clearance for rubber up to 32mm.

    Although Canyon is known for their great spec to price ratio the top flight models of this year's series aren't cheap. However you do get absolute some of the best materials with new being the carbon top rims, made by Reynolds, on all SLX models. The SL range comes with lower specifications, though still of very decent quality, DT Swiss rims and a lower grade carbon and a lesser aero package compared to the SLX bikes.

    Here is the full gallery of the upcoming range of disc bikes
    • Canyon Aeroad CF SLX - From €4199 - €5799
    • Canyon Ultimate CF SLX - From €4199 - €5499
    • Canyon Ultimate CF SL - From €2099 - €3599
    • Canyon Endurace CF SLX - From €4299 - €5799
    • Canyon Endurace CF SL - From €1999 - €3999

    That makes me an early adopter? That's a first.

    I'm pretty happy with discs. They do stop a lot better, but for me they're simply easier to adjust and service.
    If nothing else, they keep your rims from getting eaten up by brake pads.

    Hehe I probably should have clarified i meant discs on thoroghbred road bikes. I realize they've been accepted as the norm for a while in other genres.

    No question my next build (hopefully next year) will be running discs. There's almost no reason not to these days.
