in honor of a band whose legacy will long shape electronic for years to come, canyon bikes have collaborated with kraftwerk to create the berghain of bicycles–the newly unveiled ultimate CF SLX kraftwerk. what could be the most techno bike ever pays homage to kraftwerk’s iconic aesthetic, with a pioneering look that harks to the individual sounds they produce. the geometric pattern as printed on the bicycle originates from kraftwerk founder ralf hütter’s own design. each reflective strip is cut-to-measure and then hand-laid onto the bike with care.



the ultimate CF SLX kraftwerk is at the forefront of performance, as its creators are at the forefront of music. the model sees a grand tour-winning frameset combined with SRAM’s wireless eTap groupset and all-conquering 303 firecrest wheels from zipp. having been influenced by the band’s famous live appearances and absolute technical precision, canyon’s model sports a hand-finished design that echoes their clarity and visionary approach.
