Is the new Canyon Aeroad finally almost ready for its big reveal? After months of rumors and speculation, including a huge teaser thanks to Mathieu van der Poel and Zwift, it looks like the long-awaited redesign may well be imminent.

This latest confirmation is courtesy of Warren Barguil d’Arkéa-Samsic, who was first spotted piloting a machine quite different from the existing Aeroad at the recent Critérium du Dauphiné. Since then, the Frenchman has continued to use the new Aeroad on the Tour de France in combination with his Ultimate in the mountain stages. Likewise, Alejandro Valverde used the new Aeroad in Movistar colors, and seems to have followed through the mountain stages so far.

The existing Aeroad platform was first introduced in 2014, so compared to almost all of its rivals, the venerable aero racing bike is starting to look its age.
