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!

This groundbreaking system in mountain bike design effectively gives you two bikes in one at all times, all you have to do is flick the remote. More ground clearance plus steeper head and seat tube angles for absolute climbing efficiency in XC mode. Flatter angles and a lower bottom bracket for stability when shredding at speed in DH mode. It's that simple. It's that effective.

Having the right geometry is crucial for enduro, which is why we offer the Strive in two options to suit all riding styles. Our Race Geometry has a proportionally longer reach in relation to stack so you get a longer front center for extra stability when taking on high speed descents. Handling agility is not compromised thanks to a short stem so you still get fast and direct steering responses.

3 Strive AL Steuerrohrbereich


A sleek and effective solution to protecting the frame from damage should your chain ever come unstuck on rough terrain. The Chainsuck Plate is bonded directly to the chainstay for a smooth finish.

2 Strive AL breite Achse


Our 12 mm Through Axle system vastly increases rear triangle stiffness for added handling performance. When you need to remove your rear wheel the system is quick and easy to undo.

4 Strive AL Unterrohrschutz


Made from robust synthetic materials, the Down Tube Protector is screwed directly to the frame to provide extra impact protection if the trail bites back.



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 better balance down steep descents.

Strive AL 7.0



You’ll be hard pressed to find a more advanced aluminium trail bike than the Strive AL 7.0. The combination of Fox 36 Float CTD Performance forks and Cane Creek DBInline rear shock enable massive amounts of tuning so you can perfect your setup. Add to the mix a full, brand new Shimano XT groupset and you get cutting-edge performance that will never give out. To top it off, with Shapeshifter you can dominate the climbs and rip the descents.
