- Mathieu van der Poel rides the Canyon Aeroad CFR MVDP edition during the 2023 Tour de France

- New bike drops on the day the Tour starts in the hometown of Mathieu's grandfather Raymond Poulidor.

Embargo until Sunday 9 July 2023, 11:00 CEST– From explosive sprints to virtuoso solo efforts – when it comes to illuminating the highest stages in professional road racing, no one does it quite like Mathieu van der Poel.

In the past few years alone, the 28-year-old phenom has compiled a palmarès eclipsing what most top-level riders achieve in their entire career. Three Monuments in four years. Countless podium finishes. Unforgettable stints in the Maglia Rosa in 2022 and the Yellow Jersey in 2021.

And now, for one of the finest riders on the planet today comes a new Aeroad CFR, the white MVDP edition. Uniting bleeding-edge aerodynamics with advanced fit adjustment, the Aeroad CFR MVDP is the race bike Mathieu will ride for the road stages of the 2023 Tour. And befitting the world’s biggest race, it’s a bike that represents the pinnacle of road racing performance.

The Aeroad CFR is the fastest bike I’ve ever ridden – simply sensational in every way.  Mathieu van der Poel

And just like its namesake, this bike exudes style and class, with special 3D MVDP logo decals, special-edition artwork, dynamic CFR branding and a beautiful premium finish combining to create a stunning overall aesthetic.

But of course, style means nothing without speed. And combining its world-class frame with a component set fit for MVDP himself, this Aeroad more than has the speed to mix it up at the sharp end of the pack.

World Tour-level componentsEvery element of the Aeroad CFR MVDP has been optimised for all-out performance. An aero Canyon CP0015 Pro Sport Cockpit creates a super-aggressive, hunkered-down riding position and perfectly integrates all cables and lines into an easily adjustable and easy-to-transport design, saving valuable watts and letting the rider dial in their perfect fit with no steerer tube cutting required. For extra aero gains, it’s combined with a Canyon SP0066 aero seatpost, painstakingly sculpted to keep drag to an absolute minimum.

Shimano’s sensational Dura-Ace wheels also contribute to the bike’s pro credentials, with stiff 60 mm D2 rims uniting advanced aerodynamics with class-leading levels of power transfer.

Furthermore, Shimano's 12-speed Dura-Ace sets the benchmark for top-tier shifting, with state-of-the-art semi-wireless technology, exceptional precision and efficiency, and a beautifully elegant design. The Aeroad MVDP also comes with a dual-sided power meter seamlessly integrated into the 52/36 crankset.

And last but by no means least, this outstanding setup is rounded out by Van der Poel’s own signature saddle, the Selle Italia Flite Boost Kit Carbonio Superflow MVDP. With its unique design and superlight carbon rails, it’s the saddle that MVDP relies on at the biggest races.
