STRIVE

It’s rare that anything able to scramble up slopes this easily can rip so hard on the way back down. Thanks to Shapeshifter, the Strive makes the impossible possible - it is the ultimate enduro bike. The revolutionary on-the-fly system provides two distinctly different settings for geometry, suspension kinematics and travel. As a result, the Strive climbs with absolute efficiency in XC mode and bombs down the rowdiest descents in DH mode. That’s why it’s the ride of choice for the Canyon Factory Enduro Team. Give every trail a new dimension!

Strive CF 9.0 Race Team

2017

£4,899

Rocking the same setup as the Canyon Factory Enduro Team use to take on the Enduro World Series, this is as good as it gets for racers. Featuring a beefed up RockShox Lyrik RCT3 up-front and new super stiff Mavic Deemax Pro hoops, you get pinpoint handling no matter how rowdy the trail gets. Whether you’re saving energy on a transition or sprinting to the finish line, SRAM’s 1x12 Eagle groupset gives you a 500% range so you’ve always got the gear you need. New for 2017: Size XL frames with our tried and tested Race Geometry to give taller riders a piece of the action.

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.

Strive AL 6.0 Race

2017

£3,299

The Strive AL 6.0 Race gives weekend rippers the setup they need to go fast no matter the terrain. Damping duties are taken care of by RockShox with a 160 mm Lyrik RCT3 up front coupled with a Monarch Plus RC3 out back for plush performance meaning you can keep the SRAM Guide R brakes open and glide across the roughest trails. Thanks to the RockShox Reverb post with a full 150 mm of drop, you get huge freedom of movement whenever things get technical, while new XL frame sizes available with our Race Geometry mean even the tallest riders can get out and keep it pinned!
