Somebody actually has this frame or bike?
All comments and semi-reviews on the website tell me it's as stiff and as good as the normal Ultimate but lighter.
I'm about to buy a medium sized frame to build a light allround bike.
One could argue to take the normal Ultimate frame but it is not available in size medium for the moment and I do like the idea to have a very light frame...even if I'm 79kg myself.

I've got a very old Ultimate CF so not worth commenting but I know people who ride newish CF's and SLX's and there doesn't seem to be much in it other than weight, personally I'd save up and go with the SLX as I know I'd end up regretting it eventually if I didn't.

OP is referring to the ultralight Evo which no one I know has nor seen one in the wild.

I'm curious as well. I noticed it's using the leaf seat post. I hope that doesn't mean it's not compliant

my friend got the frame a few months ago and it's been sitting in his office (i know.. don't even go there)... he's getting in all his parts and will build up within the next couple weeks. I have a regular 2017 Ultimate SLX myself (same size) and will try to make some comparisons.

I called Canyon USA the other day to inquire about framesets. They said they expect to have them available in the next couple of months (read: by year end), also said the EVO would be available in that same timeline. Was in the process of deciding between the '18 Trek Emonda SLR or '18 Specialized Tarmac, but now may wait and see about the EVO availability.

My bad. It's a lot of money for a frameset, but does look rather tasty. I haven't seen any ride reviews which makes me a little sceptical, how come no test units have gone out to the press?

It's definitely alot of money for a Canyon frameset. And it's not even got a nice paint job.

Yes it's a lot of money. I agree on that part of your comment.
But the next part... :noidea:
You pay even more money for a Specialized S-Works and Specialized S-works UL.
So why would that not be a lot of money 'for a Specialized frame'?

Yeah and on the paint-sheme, that's a personal choice.
