Nairo Quintana’s Canyon Ultimate CF SLX

Movistar’s Nairo Quintana is eager to add a Tour de France title to his resume. This is the machine upon which he hopes to climb to victory in the mountains of this year’s Grand Boucle.

On his size-XS Canyon Ultimate CF SLX, a pair of prototype Campagnolo Bora 50 wheels should give Quintana added braking confidence, especially in the rain.

According to a Movistar mechanic there are only five sets of Campagnolo Bora wheels with the new brake track in the world, two pairs of 50mm wheels and three with 35mm deep rims. All are in the care of Team Movistar, and only Quintana and Alejandro Valverde are riding them at this year’s Tour.

The rest of Quintana’s bike is what we’ve come to expect for a Movistar team machine. Quintana uses a German Power2Max power meter, Canyon bar, stem and seatpost, a Super Record EPS groupset, Look pedals and Continental tires.
