The bicycle manufacturer Canyon has announced a limited edition bike that pays homage to famous German music band Kraftwerk with its amazing design. This model is limited to only 21 units, and you must be sure that the Canyon Ultimate CF SLX Kraftwerk is the most techno bike ever!
It features a geometric black and white design that reminds us the Kraftwerk’s aesthetic signature which is developed by Ralf Hütter who is the founding member of the group. The geometric lines on the bike originate from the Hütter’s own design and it is obviously much more complicated design than any Canyon bike.
After this collaboration, the CEO of the Canyon talked to the channels and said that this partnership between bike and the band carried pretty significance. According to him, it brings back “memories of partying in my friend’s basement as a teenager.”
The limited edition bike uses a grand tour-winning frame set combined with SRAM’s wireless eTap groupset and all-conquering 303 Firecrest wheels from Zipp. This year’s Tour de France does the honor in the Rhineland city of Düsseldorf and it’s being where the band first made its name, Time Trial World Champion Tony Martin began the race on a Canyon Speedmax CF SLX bearing the same design.
Canyon’s Kraftwerk bikes are available on canyon.com and its retail price is 10.000 EUR.
