The Strive AL is a full suspension touring enduro par excellence. It shines with convincing downhill performance and is also terrifically efficient on the climbs. Located somewhere between all-mountain and hardcore enduro bike, all Strive AL models deliver the ultimate in ride fun and represent an optimum marriage for touring riders and enduro race fanatics. New in 2013 is the FOX 34 fork with 160mm of travel, which reduces the weight of the bike even further. The frame is a real eye-catcher and its appearance is characterized by the unique, curved leading edge achieved through hydro forming of the tubing as well as the light and stiff 270° box.
There is also enough space for a bottle cage. Further highlights are the responsive shock with needle bearings, the conical bearing seats on the main pivot bearing and the lightweight X12 thru-axle, which delivers high levels of stiffness on the rear triangle. The trail-optimized geometry with its low centre of gravity and short chain stays guarantees agile performance on the roughest of trail passages. The adjustable seat post is an absolute must for the ultimate in ride fun. In 2013 the Reverb Stealth from RockShox with 150mm of drop and internally routed control cable is fitted as standard on all Strive AL models.
After 14 reforming phases we achieve the desired design of the Strive frame. A hot mix of water and oil is forced through the initially round tube shapes. The tube is positioned in the mould, whose shape it is later to assume. The internal pressure causes the tube to nestle into the mould, thereby achieving the unmistakeable frame appearance of the Strive.
The light and stiff 270° BOX generates an optimised response curve to meet the needs of the most demanding enduro riders. The BOX initially allows for a linear response curve, thereby guaranteeing a responsive ride. The curve becomes gradually more progressive towards the end and helps prevent suspension bottom out in extremely blocked terrain and on jumps. The short rocker arms provide the necessary stiffness. In addition, we have also succeeded in keeping the entire BOX as light as possible without in any way compromising stiffness. The 270° BOX also allows the bike's centre of gravity to be positioned even lower. This makes the bike significantly more agile.
They look great, save weight and are easy to replace: The internally routed cables from Canyon. The cross-over routing inside the frame ensures that the cables don't rattle inside the tube even when they are not under tension.
The newly developed rear triangles with Postmount deliver stiffness on the drive-train side and on the left a great deal of braking torque stabilization. That is exactly what a modern rear triangle with disc brakes needs.
