Canyon Inflite range catches a refresh

The Inflite's kinked top tube is part of a frame design that allows for compliance, and mud clearance. And there's a cool Alpecin-Fenix livery too.

Leaning on the feedback from — and successes of — world champions Mathieu van der Poel and Ceylin del Carmen Alvarado, Canyon is refreshing the Inflite cyclocross and gravel bike lineup.

Canyon’s signature ‘kink’ in the top tube is part of a frame design that allows for compliance, and mud clearance.

The Canyon Inflite CF SLX, CF SL, and aluminum AL SLX are outfitted with the latest component groups from Shimano and SRAM. The Canyon FK0045 CF Disc fork adorns the four additional bikes in the range.
