Stemming from the partnership of the factory team and now working its way to the bikes on the consumer market, Canyon and Troy Lee Designs have joined forces in a limited edition of the Strive with dedicated graphics, made by TLD.
[Press release] – You can almost see it. The strongest mountain bikers now seem even faster. From the bike to the kit, to the riding style, everything exudes speed. That’s why Canyon teamed up with Troy Lee Designs to give the Enduro-winning Strive CFR a new livery, racing parts and a matching kit. The limited edition colorway was first presented at this year’s Enduro World Series with which Jack Moir took third place a few weeks later in Petzen. Although fans of Canyon and Troy Lee Designs have already had the chance to see the Strive CFR TLD in action, they can now finally buy it.
Troy Lee Designs’ iconic graphics are everywhere in the gravity scene. The American brand has been worn by the best riders in the world, and while Canyon’s roots in racing aren’t that ancient, both companies share a desire to help fast athletes go even faster. What started as a DH collaboration with Sender CFR has now become an Enduro partnership. Making the Strive CFR, one of the best performing bikes in EWS history, look as fast as it is in reality was no easy task, but Canyon and Troy Lee succeeded. The result? A bike and a coordinated kit that do not go unnoticed on the trails.
Aside from the new look, the Strive CFR TLD maintains the same race-proven pedigree during this year’s Enduro World Series, where Canyon CLLCTV rider Jack Moir is steadily picking up speed upon returning from shoulder surgery. The lightweight, durable and progressive frame combines with the revolutionary Shapeshifter technology, which changes geometry, to offer a bike that is easy to pedal on challenging stretches and that can be tuned for the most important part: the descent.
The Strive CFR TLD is Canyon’s reference enduro bike and is presented ready to race at the highest level. The bike features technical specifications inspired by the CLLCTV Enduro Team, with a SRAM XX1 groupset, CODE RSC brakes and a Super Deluxe rear spring shock. The spring-loaded shock offers the best possible traction and feel, while the Shapeshifter ensures the bike moves uphill as fast as its air rivals.
A limited number of Strive CFR TLDs will be available exclusively on canyon.com starting September 6, 2022.
