Best Pro Triathlete’s Bike On Display

Leanda Cave’s Canyon Speedmax CF

While Leanda Cave was holed up in Colorado training for the fall championship races, her old bike was on display at Eurobike. The Canyon Speedmax CF she road earlier this year was in the booth of the German brand sporting part of her race-day setup.

Canyon bikes aren’t sold in the United States. Two years ago, the company invited U.S. media to see its new models under the premise that they may be available in America at some point in the near future and while that hasn’t yet happened, this ProTour-vetted bike is one of the few intriguing aero bikes we can’t get. The front-end is severely integrated and sleek, although it lacks some elements of adjustability and is only compatible with Canyon’s aerobar. Cave swapped this particular frame for a smaller version that is better suited to her fit, and she will race that Speedmax CF when she tries to defend her Ironman World Championship title next month.
