Exceed CF SLX CLLCTV: World Cup DNA in a privateer race package

The Exceed CF SLX CLLCTV brings World Cup DNA in a privateer race package by combining a top-level spec and an outrageously fast frame. For the very first time, the eye-catching XC CLLCTV colourway is now available online at canyon.com. The bike is finished with a RockShox SID SL Ultimate fork with 100mm travel, giving Thomas brilliant control and responsiveness on the most technical courses.

A SRAM XX Eagle AXS drivetrain and SRAM XX DUB Carbon cranks deliver exceptional efficiency, meaning all of his power is transferred to the trail, while the DT Swiss XRC1200 wheelset ensures unrivalled performance and reliability.

The Exceed is a really impressive bike. The lightness and stiffness of the bike gave me a huge advantage in Leogang. That course is really tough because there’s a lot of climbing, so racing there with the Exceed was a great experience. I was surprised by the performance and comfort on the descents too, it’s not what I expected from a hardtail, and then it’s so fast when you hit the uphills. Thomas Griot, Canyon CLLCTV XCO
