they had a yellowish hue, so it's not just one color.
you can get close to the green by using a color picker in virtually any image editor.

Just finished putting together my Ultimate SLX Katusha team colours frameset.

Will be fitting some Enve classic 45s with white logos once the decals are finished for them.

I'll then get some better photos outside.

Nice to see another Katusha Ultimate, here is a picture of mine:

yours is a size L right? how is it so light?
mine is over 7kg and I have lighter wheels, ...and mechanical ultegra set which is probably heavier than your etap

Quite hard to answer without knowing your setup, but note that my wheels are 2013 404 FC tubulars at 1368g and that the weight difference btw SRAM Red eTap and Ultegra is quite substantial.

That does seem very light for a large.

Mine weighed in at just under 6.8kg in a size small with basically the same components apart from Enve 45 classics on and enve seatpost! And not even a power meter?

Someones done some calculations wrong here haha!

Off the shelf, bought mine at Black Friday Sale 2016. Probably "over-production" which Katusha didn't need. Never part of the normal Canyon collection.

I don´t do calculations, 6680 is complete bike on scale. Frame was 830g incl. some hardware (hanger, seatclamp, bolts). You have quite the spacer tower, perhaps that's the difference...

Looks fantastic. Very clean and "looks" so much lighter than the stated weight too.

Okay fair one, i dont think the extra plastic spacers and less frame size would add up.

Maybe my park tools scales need some calibrating :roll:
