Designed and developed by the Canyon crew. Made for the toughest Enduro stages and all your backyard trails.
Over the last few years, the Strive has proven its credentials as a versatile racing machine on some of the most demanding courses in the world, with our Canyon Factory Enduro Team twice riding it to glory in the Enduro World Series team championship. And this year, we’ve taken things a step forward to create a new Strive that’s even faster and more versatile.
We’ve taken the Shapeshifter to the next level – Stage 2.0. The new two-way valve makes the Shapeshifter even easier and more intuitive to use. To switch from cross-country mode to downhill mode when you reach the trailhead, just flick the switch on the handlebar. The next time you compress the rear shock, the Shapeshifter’s gas spring will automatically compress, changing the bike’s geometry and the kinematics of the rear triangle. In DH mode, it feels more like you are sitting ‘in’ the bike, and you have 150 mm of travel, rather than 135 mm. The bottom bracket height is reduced giving you a lower centre of gravity, you have a flatter steering angle, and the wheelbase is extended for more stability in fast and steep sections – advantages that make all the difference when every second counts.
