Difficult to answer this without knowing what bikes you discounted in arriving at the Canyon.

and

If you went straight to the Canyon then there may be several dozen or hundred alternatives which you have overlooked.

I already have a Canyon Endurace CF SL but a 105 , looking for a new bike for sportives and casual riding, discs and 28 wheels are preferred.

Rose X-Lite Four (Ultegra Di2 ) fits your criteria.

£2722 in the standard specification but you can opt for a wheel upgrade if you want although the 2 options available would take it above your budget.

I have the 105 version and I really rate it. ~6.8kg for the 57cm version. Will easily take 28mm tyres without mudguards.
