Strive CFR

Two bikes in one

With its Shapeshifter tech, the Strive CFR combines the descending speed and capability of a downhill rig with the climbing efficiency of a trail bike. The ideal combination for hardcore Enduro racing on the toughest stages around. But how? Simply push the handlebar-mounted switch to engage the gas spring located above the shock, and switch between geometries as you ride. Pick Shred mode for maximum downhill performance thanks to a slacker head angle, longer wheelbase, and 160 mm of rear travel. Or go into Pedal mode for better climbing and maximum efficiency thanks to 140 mm rear travel, a shorter wheelbase, and 1.5-degree steeper head and seat tube angles.

Adjust your fit

You can also change the reach and wheelbase of the bike by -5/0/+5 mm by flipping the headset cup to optimize the bike’s fit if you’re in between frame sizes. Longer wheelbase for greater stability or shorter wheelbase for snappier handling: It’s up to you.

Enjoy the silence

The downtube protector shields the carbon frame from ground hits and flying stones. And a further protector on the drive side chainstay dampens noises caused by chain slap on rough trails.

The Canyon Strive is the cheapest bike in this test but takes on the competition with a consistent spec. It’s an excellent all-rounder and also one of the best climbers in this test, which is mainly due to the Shapeshifter. Downhill, it impresses with intuitive, predictable handling and excellent suspension. Overall, the Strive can keep up with the best bikes of the season while at the same time allowing you to shred the trails, not your bank account ;). As a result, the Canyon secures the coveted Best Buy Tip in our 2023 enduro group test!

Bike classification

This category also covers the requirements of 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 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.
