Fabien Barel is back and here is his new shape shifter Canyon Strive. Apparently he has taken 2 years to develop this bike. It all started at the EWS in Punta Ala back in 2013, 14 races later and many testing hours and they arrived at this production model.
Fabien is glad to be back.
The shape shifter allows the bike to change geometry and travel.

You can just see the shape shifter cable control for the shock.
Notice the left bar side has the remote for shape shifting and saddle height control.
