Not only is this bike still in the development phase and not yet available for consumers, the Canyon brand isn’t even selling bikes in the United States. But Canyon has demonstrated that they are committed to true aerodynamic development by using a modular SLA-prototyped model of a bike to wind tunnel test different design characteristics and the Concept Speedmax is the result of that commitment. Canyon is also embracing triathletes’ specific geometric needs. The Concept Speedmax has time trial geometry, but Canyon engineers have said that they will produce a tri-specific version when they eventually bring the bike to the United States. They have scheduled an announcement for January 2013, possibly regarding their expansion into the US. In short, Canyon’s possible entry into the US market, with a tri-specific bike, is what earned the German bike company a slot in this top-10 list.
