Canyon’s new Strive:ON CFR electric enduro bike has its eyes set firmly on the UCI E-Enduro World Cup Series – but how does it ride?
Great climbing geometry
Mullet setup aids on tight turns
Occasional pedal strikes

The Canyon Strive:ON CFR was developed as an e-enduro racer. But how does it fare as an all-rounderwhat about its all round qualities?

For a brand so focused on racing (and so proficient at building one of the best e-bikes on the market in the shape of the Spectral:ON), it was only a matter of time before Canyon designed a competition enduro e-bike. What’s more of a surprise is how accomplished the new Strive:ON is without a number zip-tied to the bars. Looking for the lowdown on the updates and what the full range looks like? Check out our essential guide to the new Canyon Strive:ON. Need to know Race-ready enduro e-bike with 170mm front/160mm rear travel Bosch motor with 85Nm and 600W peak power – top model gets the lighter Race motor with 2m overrun feature Either 625Wh or 750Wh battery enclosed by carbon chassis – choose your battery to suit the race Four frame sizes, all with a mixed wheel set-up Three models with prices starting from £5,699 What are the ingredients needed to make a bespoke enduro race e-bike? A Bosch motor for that fast, predictable response and powerful overrun to slingshot you out of tight corners and boost you through technical chess moves on the timed climb stage. An accessible battery compartment for those mandatory power pack changes. A tight, manoeuvrable, compliant chassis that carries speed and conserves energy with the suspension kinematics tuned to provide ample grip rather than ultimate progression when landing big drops and moto jumps. Maybe a little more ground clearance for those mid-stage sprints. Not just a race bike If those are the pieces of the puzzle then the finished jigsaw might well end up looking like the new Canyon Strive:ON – a purpose-built competition bike that happens to be rather good when the clock isn’t ticking. Which is a good thing, seeing as the proportion of people who race e-enduro at a top level is minuscule compared to the hordes of riders hacking around their local trails at the weekend just looking to have a blast with their mates. More on how the Strive:ON rides a little further on, but for now let’s take a look at the bike itself, and how it differs from the excellent Canyon Spectral:ON. Why the Strive:ON doesn’t get the Shapeshifter Firstly, the Strive:ON looks more like the Spectral:ON than the unassisted Strive. The shock runs inline with the seatstays, anchored to the down tube at the forward eyelet, rather than sitting parallel to the seat tube as it does on the analogue Strive. With far less room to work with between the top of the motor and the underside of the top tube, Canyon couldn’t have replicated the layout of the analogue Strive if it had wanted to. Also missing from the e-bike version is the Shapeshifter travel and geo switch with its on-the-fly adjustment. With 600W and 85Nm of torque on tap from the Bosch motor, pedalling efficiency just isn’t that important on an e-bike, so Canyon could do away with the extra weight and complexity, freeing up space inside the front triangle for a water …Continue reading »
A blistering race bike that’s just as capable outside the tape. Great value. Well considered spec.
We’re bored of green paint – can’t we have some bright colours?
