edit- sorry meant to post this in the Canyon love thread...

Hi all,
I have done the calculations on a Large 2016 Ultimate SLX and I want a total of 6-8mm spacing on top of the head tube (total including the headset cover). Problem is the headset cover is 16mm high. Canyon tell me there is not a lower profile headset cover available.

It looks like the factory design (Acros specially make it for Canyon) is something unusual with a bolt tightening it onto the steerer. Does this headset cover actually provide pre-load on the steerer so it can't be removed?

Does anyone know if the factory cover could be swapped out for a non-propriatry one with lower profile? I found this picture which would appear to show a low profile cover can be used but it seems it is a custom fitting for the womens pro team

You'll find this topic discussed several times in the forum.
Write to Canyon, ask for their lower stack headset cover and the compression plug.
Get some extra spacers as well, just in case.

Thanks. I've already asked Canyon. There may have been a lower stack cover for the older style headsets but Canyon have told me there is nothing available from them now. I am wondering if there is a workaround?

That is odd, because I don't think the headset has changed.
See if you can get one of the older slim covers off of eBay.
If you measure the top cap width needed, you might be able to get someone to machine something for you as well as some appropriate spacers for underneath.
But, I really believe the older slim top cap from Canyon would still work.
It is still a One-One-Four fork and an Acros headset on the Ult SLX model.
Might be worth reaching out to Acros as well.
