Anyone know if the Aeroad is due for an update for 2018? Thanks!

With the relaxing of the UCI 3:1 rule I hope a few new bikes will be released.

No I don't know.

I would guess that next Spring/summer we will see in the pro peloton a new Aeroad. It will be due for renewal

But it won't be available to consumers until spring 2019 I would guess based on past experience.

So you're in for a long wait

What Patto said. Now is not the time to get spendy on an aero bike. Things are about to change, relatively dramatically. Not sure if 2018 will be the year, but 2019 models onwards definitely are going to be worth going nuts over :P

So ask yourself, even if Canyon put out a minor update on the Aeroad in 2018, would you really be happy with it if some months after you got your got your hands on it you started seeing the real next generation of aero frame shapes starting to appear in the cycling news sites?

You'd die a little inside :cry:

Edit: Nevermind all that. First 3:1 exceeding road frame is out today. Typical.

Orbea's new Orca Aero. Fattened tubes apparently exceeding 3:1 in places.

Yeah looks class. Can't wait to get more info on how/where exactly it's exceeding 3:1 and how it holds up against the older gen of aero frames like the VIAS/S5/Madone/Aeroad.

I think one of the biggest gains you may see is deeper forks on bikes as this potentially can reduce drag a fair bit.

Deeper tubing adds too much weight to many already heavy aero frames with less aero gain.

The extra weight would be worth it if they could move towards NACA profiled tubes and away from kammtail. I'd happily take another 200g on my S5 if they'd do that.

Keep hearing about the 3:1 rules getting relaxed, but what exactly are the new restrictions?

Why would you want them to do that?

The 3:1 rule (for frames and fork) might be gone but the 80 max length and 25 min width (10 mm for some tubes) remains.
