Shimano Di2 R9170
Schmolke TLO handlebar & seatpost
Tune speed needle marathon & Stem
SiC carbon rotor
bike ahead biturbo road wheelset

I will be surprised if you get to that weight.

Maybe low 6kg...

My CF SLX with R9170 without pedals/etc was 6.45.

When you start adding the extras, the weight soon adds up.

Do you have a build thread for your Canyon?

I am also planning a disc build, and currently estimating around 6.8-6.9kg with similar components. The TLO45 clincher will come out 1300+grams, depending on hubs.

Haven't seen any carbon rotors that work. Lightest seem to be Ashima. Absolute Black also has some interesting looking ones.

Absolute Black doesn't make/sell rotors anymore. Nor would I go weight weenie on that particular component anyway.

Oh, didn't know that. They still have them on their site. Any idea on why they're not making them anymore?

When I e-mailed them, they just said they were focusing on their oval rings for now. Also that they don't know if they plan on reintroducing them later.
