Canyon launches new Endurace AL Disc road bike models

New models from the German brand include the Canyon Endurace AL Disc 6.0 and 7.0

Canyon has launched new disc brake road bike models for 2017, offering two new build options. 

The newly released Endurace bikes are the first aluminium performance road bikes from Canyon to be specced with disc brakes. 

The launch of the new Endurace AL bikes follows the earlier news that Canyon will offer all of its road bikes with the option of disc brakes, when it unveiled the disc-equipped Aeroad and Ultimate models back in December. 

The lower spec of the two new models, the Canyon Endurace AL Disc 6.0 comes with a full Shimano 105 build. The Canyon Endurace AL Disc 7.0 is equipped with a Shimano Ultegra groupset and a higher price tag to match. 

The higher level build brings a negligible weight saving of 300g (8.5kg vs 8.8kg) across the whole bike, equating to 100g for every additional €100 it costs (€1,699 vs €1,399).

The assured shifting of the latest incarnation of Shimano 105 is so good that it comes close to rivalling its big brother Ultegra, which makes the Endurace AL Disc 6.0 appear to be the better value option. 

Canyon's top-spec disc brake road bikes look set to be rolled out in the WorldTour in the 2017 season when the UCI's disc brake launch restarts in the Spring.
