… I tested today the Aeroad but I had a huge problem with crosswinds: the bike was very unstable. Is this a problem of the frame, of the wheels or of both? Can this frame be such sensible for crosswinds?
probably the wheels, although it wouldn't hurt to know how deep they are.

I have shallow 30mm wheels and even those sometimes are hard to control in strong winds.
The wheels are the REYNOLDS STRIKE SLG CARBON DISC TUBELESS 62mm. The bike was just very unstable. Then I tried the Ultimate SLX with the MAVIC COSMIC PRO CARBON DISC 42mm and it was good. That's because I'm asking if the problem were the wheels. But now I read on CyclingTips about the Canyon Aeroad CF SLX 9.0 Di2 that the problem could be the bike itself: "The wind turned out to be the biggest problem for the Aeroad CF SLX. The Cosmic Pro wheelset was highly susceptible to crosswinds, but so was the frame. Switching to low profile wheels didn’t do much to calm the bike, and after a week of strong winds, the Aeroad was losing some of its appeal." This is for me NOT good. I think, I will choose the Ultimate.

I tried both Ultimate SLX and Aeroad SLX. And the Aeroad was more comfortable - probably because the Ultimate had some really tough tyres. So my take is that frames are probably so close you/I won’t be able to feel any difference...

I think you mean the Endurace. The Aeroad has a one piece seatpost.
