According to the website the framesets electrical CF and SLX differ 300 grams. The (complete?) set of the SLX is 1,8 and the SL is 2,1 kg. I thought the sets where only about 100g difference (and some stiffness). The (much) cheaper SL has also the lighter (70 grams) CP10 aerocockpit. So the difference is probably even bigger. Canyon themselves (chat) claim the weights are correct. Does anybody can confirm/know the weights for real?

I think the frame is about 100g difference between SL and SLX, but in 2019 they changed from SLX to SL forks for SL model and there's probably 100+g difference.

Paint vs. clearcoat only?

Weight according to Roadbike (actual measured):
Canyon Ultimate CF SL disc (2019) : frame 1010 g and fork 395g (My Aeroad CF SLX M disc does 980g (completely stripped) and 400g for the aerofork)
Canyon Ultimate CF SLX disc (2019): frame 809g and fork 370g
So the difference is "already" a little over 200g but how Canyon comes to 300g is not very clear to me.
