profile

The Strive AL 7.0 is a genuine all-rounder with its light weight, agility and power transfer. Even from a distance the frame catches the eye with its flowing, organic lines. The advanced kinematics allow you to climb efficiently and then bomb the descents. When on extremely steep descents, the adjustable travel Fox Talas fork can be lowered so you can put more pressure down on the front wheel.

If there’s one thing every Enduro bike needs, it’s a Vario seatpost. When the trail gets technical then there’s only one thing for it: drop the saddle! The RaceFace Respond double crankset provides a wide range of gears while the chain is held securely in place by the e*thirteen TRS chain guide and XT Shadow Plus derailleur. The Strive AL 7.0 provides the perfect platform for you to launch yourself into the world of Enduro.

Our "raw club" colour option has a raw, untreated alloy base, which is given a coating of clear lacquer to protect the frame.

  • "The Strive is a perfect compromise of comfort, stability and reactivity because of the overall travel of the bike and because of its light weight. A weapon for trail riding."

    Fabien Barel, Canyon Factory Enduro Team
  • "Riding the Strive was a totally new feeling. For the first time in my life I hopped on a new bike and felt comfortable from the very first moment on."

Highlights

HYDRO 14
14 reforming steps for ideal
stiffness-to-weight values

ANTI-SQUAT-KINEMATICS
for minimum performance loss

270° BOX
provides stiffness and
a low center of gravity

NEEDLE BEARING OF THE DAMPER
for sensitive response

270° Box
The forces which are created during riding are perfectly transferred towards the damper through a 270° deflection. A conical bearing mount and a sealed needle bearing in the damper eye ensure a more responsive 270° Box and a high axial rigidity. Due to the construction of the integrated 270° Box the centre of gravity is very low-lying, allowing an agile riding performance.

Anti-Squat-Kinematics
The single pivot rear triangle in combination with the large down tube guarantees a stiff drivetrain. The optimized pivot point offers the highest level of anti-squat performance and the lowest braking forces even when equipped with different crank sets.

Hydro 14
An ensemble of 14 reforming steps is necessary to produce the special hydroformed tubes. This extremely complex manufacturing process enables highest stiffness-to-weight values. In conjunction with the low-lying 270° Box the frame design sets aesthetic standards and on top of that offers space for mounting a bottle cage.

Needle bearing of the damper
In order to provide the chassis with maximum sensitivity, the damper is equipped with a full complement needle roller ball bearing, sealed against dirt. This runs on a double clamped full floating thru-axle in the 270° Box, which again increases the stiffness.

Bike Classification

This category includes all bikes from categories 1-3. In addition it includes use on very harsh, obstacle-scattered terrain with steep gradients and consequently higher speeds. Regular, moderate jumps pose no problem for experienced riders when using these bikes. Extended and regular use in bike parks and when tackling “North Shore” sections should be avoided. Due to increased stresses, these bikes should be checked for damage after every ride. Full suspension bikes with mid-level travel are typical in this category.

Excellent critique

Bikesport 5-6/13 (model 2013): Downhill oriented all-mountain bikes was what the magazine Bikesport called this category and where it tested seven powerful models with up to 160mm of travel. The Canyon Strive AL 9.0 SL also took part in the test and received glowing reviews. more  »
