The Canyon Endurace is a lightweight disc racing bike with additional comfort and extra pneumatic power for the longest drives over the toughest roads.
Canyon Endurace CF SL Disc 7.0
There are three carbon versions, as well as an entry aluminum endurace, which flanking the SL variant are the CF and the CF SLX. The Canyon Endurace CF SL Disc 7.0 is the cheapest SL bike with its 105 groupsets, and although recent currency problems have changed our value perceptions significantly, they are still affordable.
In middle bicycle, the weight of the frame is estimated to be 960 g, which is fine for a regular road bicycle, and let alone more kicks. The whole cycle has an 8.16 kg, and there is certainly a rise in weight with relatively expensive tires, groupsets, and finishing kits.
Sizing Canyon Endurance CF SL Disc 7.0
The Canyon geometry map recommends a medium structure of my 178-cm in height, even the upper limit for riding a small one, but the gap between the saddle nose and the middle of the handlebar and the hoods was 40 mm less than average for the normal saddle location on the 25-mm reverse side.
As the outcome is much less than I’m used to with the 100-mm stem supplied, the geometry figures should be reviewed carefully. I will definitely prefer the wide frame for reflection, with its 15 mm long top tube, 16 mm high head tube, and 10 mm longer stalk, even though in principle, I’m too short.
A lot of performance bikes give less distance, but for one with a ‘run’ in the title, I found my ability to stretch a little compromised. Compared to Canyon’s Ultimate, the Endurace medium has a head angle of only 0.3 degrees less, 5 mm longer chains, and 10 mm longer wheelbase, which is still just 990 mm, and a 9 mm higher head cap. In this aspect, Canyon has kept it rather than slow, and it’s evident from the first flight.
Canyon Endurace CF SL Disc 7.0 drive experiences
There’s a noticeable snap to the pedaling sound of the Endurace, with a strong response and gentle but powerful steering. Excellent lateral stability guarantees a strong drive from the grip on the handlebar to power transmission thru the chainstays, with thru-axles holding the dropouts together for performance.
Canyon Endurace CF SL Disc 7.0, extended frame clearances are not quite baggy, but the Continental Grand Prix 28 mm tires, measuring 31 mm on the DT Swiss E1800 Spline wheelset, play a major part in the performance of the bike.
The E1800s are not super powerful, but at the estimated 1.655 g, they don’t behave like anchors either. They are 20 mm wide internally and designed robust, suitable for the planned use of this bike. The extra tire capacity ensures the 80 psi is more than enough on the lane, and if you’re going through the rougher ground for a while, lower pressures are also easily feasible.
The well-rounded tire-profile maximizes corner grip, and it’s perfect over broken roads or dirt. The faith they bring to the bike’s ride raises the pace all over the place, and their size boosts comfort.
The somewhat narrow, narrow, bridgeless seats and the VCLS Seatpost create a reasonable polka dot ride on the back, which the front end doesn’t fit. It’s still fine, mostly because of the size of the rubber, but it’s firmer.
Canyon Endurace CF SL Disc 7.0 overall
The Endurace CF SL is a fantastic place to be for long trips, and the Shimano 105 is a perfect choice for high consistency, stable moving, and now has hydraulic dis brakes. What the 105-level hydraulic shifters of Shimano lack in design, they make up for in comfort and generally good versatility, but considering their appearance, they don’t offer more than 105 mechanical hoods.
Gearing 52/36 up front and an 11-32 tape appears to cover all the bases from running to steep hill grinding, and it does, with no visible holes. Emphasis is on efficiency and pace, and both are easily attainable, as long as you can deal with a small front/back comfort discrepancy and take the time to choose the right fit for you.
