"Mathieu fortunately did not fall. We want to ensure with absolute certainty that no one comes to harm before we have fully understood the root cause" says Roman Arnold, founder of Canyon Bicycles. Canyon is therefore informing all affected Aeroad customers and asking them to stop using their bike for the time being.
"We are doing everything we can to equip the affected Aeroad models as quickly as possible with a cockpit that meets both our and our customers' demands for total quality and safety," emphasises Armin Landgraf, CEO of Canyon Bicycles.
It has also already been decided that all professional teams will switch to alternative bikes with immediate effect. Until further notice, the pro sport athletes will be using the previous model of Aeroad or the current Ultimate.
