A road, cyclocross, and MTB phenom – Mathieu van der Poel is one of the most outrageously talented riders on the planet. And now he's teamed up with Canyon to design a bike that’s pure Poetry in Motion. With a colourway designed in collaboration with MVDP himself – and which he raced while storming to victory at Paris-Roubaix and Milan-San Remo 2023 – the special-edition Aeroad CFR Disc MVDP is an aero race bike fit for a champion.

Racing red

An homage to the all-action style of one of the leading lights in pro cycling today, the Aeroad CFR Disc MVDP’s red-hot custom artwork reflects the fire and panache of one of the world's very best. Van der Poel on the custom artwork he helped design: “The Aeroad CFR is the fastest bike I’ve ever ridden – simply sensational in every way. With this edition, I wanted the artwork to express that special kind of fire and passion I feel when I ride at the biggest stages in cycling.”

Poetry in Motion: decals designed with MVDP

For an extra measure of MVDP racing flair, the Aeroad CFR Disc MVDP features exclusive decals you won’t find anywhere else. There's a 3D MVDP logo on the front of the head tube, and the frame also comes adorned with one of his favourite mantras reflecting his serene, metronomic, relentless riding style: 'Poetry in Motion'. Three words that say it all.

A World Champion whip

Style means nothing without speed. And when it comes to speed, nothing compares to the Aeroad CFR MVDP. Combining the Aeroad’s world-class aerodynamics with a component set that that reads like a wishlist for a pro rider’s dream bike build, this is a bike that’s worthy of MVDP’s name.

Every inch of this bike is trimmed to deliver pure pace. Cheat the wind with a super-aero front end and a carbon Canyon CP0018 Aerocockpit which fully integrates all cables and lines into a beautiful, adjustable, travel-friendly design. The Canyon SP0046 aero seatpost saves more watts with its aerodynamically optimised tube profile.

Shimano's flagship Dura-Ace wheels are pro peloton fast, with super-stiff 60 mm rims delivering incredible power transfer and advanced aerodynamics thanks to Shimano’s latest D2 design.

The bike also uses Shimano’s latest and greatest Dura-Ace groupset, which raises the high-performance shifting stakes to a whole new level. The 12-speed, semi-wireless groupset combines cutting-edge technology, supreme efficiency, and iconic design to set a benchmark in road cycling.

Rounding out a first-class setup is Mathieu’s signature Selle Italia Flite Carbonio Superflow MVDP Edition saddle. Designed with MVDP, this saddle is his first choice for the biggest races, with special artwork and superlight carbon rails.

One of the world’s fastest bikes dedicated to one of the world’s fastest riders.
