The elite Rapha Cycling Club has reunited with Canyon Bicycles for a sexy update of “the world’s best Club bike”. One that has been described as the cycling equivalent of a supercar, meaning you don’t exactly have to be a trained racer to tear it up something fierce. This is the RCC x Canyon Ultimate Disc Bike.
Featuring a high-gloss flecked paint scheme and surface design, RCC’s signature grey, pink, black colourway, as well as a powerful blend of its lightweight 7.46 kg carbon-fibre build with “supreme stiffness” – you’ll be turning heads for any of the following reasons:
a) the sheer velocity being clocked
b) the clean-cut aesthetic
c) all of the above
For the more technically literate riders out there, the RCC x Canyon Ultimate Disc Bike has an SRAM Force AXS groupset for intuitive shifting with a fully wireless set and an integrated power meter to monitor performance down to the millisecond intervals.
Complete control and aerodynamics are the name of the game when it comes to cycling. Complete control and aerodynamics are what’s on offer thanks to the SRAM Force HRD brakes, allowing you to stay on course regardless of the terrain “with superb braking power and modulation”, finished with the one-two combination of a DT Swiss ARC1400 wheelset and 50mm profile for streamlined aero efficiency.
The latest RCC x Canyon collaboration will be limited to 250 examples and only available to Rapha Cycling members for a retail price of £5,149 (AU$9,290).
