I just got the "Canyon is Here" email with info that the USA website is live.
Inflite AL SLX 8.0 Pro Race - $1799 info:
For anyone serious about buying a top-line racing cyclocross bike, but doesn’t have the extra funds or personal sponsorships, the Inflite AL SLX 8.0 Pro Race will be a perfect option. Equipped with much of the same high-level components as the CF SLX 8.0 Pro Race, this version of the bike will save you loads with only the most modest weight gain. The AL SLX frame made from a smooth welded alu includes vibration-reducing seat stays that will work to channel your pedal power to the trail. Similarly, the oval chain stays offer greater clearance for the tires while keeping the back-end super stiff. The VCLS technology used for frame and fork ensure that the ride is comfy while keeping the frame effective and responsive. The SRAM Rival groupset will be a reliable companion, and for the crank you’ll even get the power meter-ready X1-compatible Quarq Prime aluminum crank. The touch points are all Canyon in-house parts that are designed to keep the handling sharp and the comfort high with the H17 Ergo AL handlebars, V13 durable stem, and the Canyon S23 CF seatpost. The DT Swiss CR 1600 Spline DB wheelset combined with the 33mm Schwalbe X-One tubeless compatible tires will form a durable, responsive team to keep your momentum over tough sections and grip in a wide range of course conditions. The Inflite AL SLX 8.0 Pro Race will get you through the cross season with ease and within budget.
What is the max tire clearance for both the Canyon Endurace and the Inflite series. for 700 vs 650b wheels
Thank you for your email.
We are very proud of the fact that the Endurace was designed with using larger sized tires in mind. That being said it's max tire clearance is 33mm with a 700c wheel.
We did not design it to be used as a gravel bike and as such did not give it clearance for the bigger tires. We have not tested tire sizing with any 650b wheels but that should afford you some extra clearance.
The Inflite has clearance for up to a 700x38mm tire.
Sadly I do not have clearance measurements on using a 650b sized rim as we have not tested it with these wheels.
All the best,
