For 2021, Canyon has given the flagship enduro bike, the Strive a refresh. The updated range doesn't just see in new colours but 170mm forks across the range and it benefits from a host of new kit that's been released throughout the year.
Kicking off with the new kit found on the 2021 Strives. Each bike now gets a 170mm fork which not only gives the bike a bit more travel at the front, but it slackens the head angle to 66° and raises the front end.
With the longer forks, 2021 brings the move to Fox's current GRIP2 dampers on the CF 8 and CFR models.
At the pricier end of the range, the CF9 and CFR now get DT Swiss's carbon EXC 1501 and EXC 1200 wheels.
All bikes also see in One Up Components' V2 dropper posts which get a boost in travel depending on the size.
This year's bike keeps the on-the-fly geometry and travel adjusting Shapeshifter and it's still shod with Maxxis rubber but for 2021 the Minion DHR fitted to the rear benefits from an EXO+ casing and all bikes can now be found with an Assegai on the front.
There is also a selection of new colours finding their way onto the bike. The CF 7 and 8 get the X-Ray green colourway that's previously been reserved for the likes of the Seagraves and the CFR gets a black and white colourway.
Prices for the updated range start at £3,300 for the CF 7 and they top out at £6,500 for the Strive CF which gets a frame with a special layup that's claimed to save 300g, along with a top drawer built kit. All models get a carbon frame.
