profile

The Strive CF 8.0 is light enough to keep riding all day long thanks its 2400 g carbon frame (including Shapeshifter), yet packs enough heat to blast down the most extreme trails. Our Regular Geometry shares its DNA with the Spectral series to create a super agile all-mountain weapon for taking on the back country. With the perfect setup in XC mode to take on climbs and rolling terrain, the Strive CF completely transforms in DH mode with plusher suspension, more travel and slacker angles to take on any descent. No matter where the trail goes, nothing will ever stop you from riding.

Brand new Fox 36 Float Fit RC2 forks with 170 mm of travel contain enhanced damper technology for extra sensitive responsiveness, while always holding enough travel in store when tackling steep gradients. Combined with the DBinline shock from Cane Creek, you can achieve the perfect chassis setup to suit your style. With extra wide 25 mm rims for a stable tyre bed, the tubeless ready DT Swiss EX 1501 Spline wheels wrapped in Continental Trail King rubber roll fast and keep the weight down. Shimano XT drivetrain guarantees high performance shifting day in, day out, while XT disc brakes ensure absolute control with reliable braking power. All in all, that’s all bases covered for all-mountain action!

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.

Shapeshifter

Chainsuck Plate

Tapered Steerer

Canyon Through Axle

Shapeshifter
Two modes - XC and DH - for every trail. XC mode gives you more ground clearance and climbing efficiency. DH mode flattens the angles for stability at speed and a better position for taking on steep descents.

Canyon Through Axle
Our 12 mm Through Axle increases rear triangle stiffness and includes a quick release for fast wheel changes.

Chainsuck Plate
Embedded into the carbon, the Chainsuck Plate is a sleek solution to protecting the frame from damage.

Tapered Steerer
Working in conjunction with tapered fork shafts, the Tapered Steerer increase headtube stiffness for direct, accurate handling and improved braking performance.
