Review: The 2022 Canyon Strive is Longer, Slacker, & Still Has a Shapeshifter
@Ttimer: This is a consumer item though. Not really reassuring to know my race bike has a limited warranty backing from the manufacturer. All that tells me is they don´t trust their product. And let´s be real, racing a bike often times takes a bigger toll on a bike than clean hucks at the bikepark. I know i´ve sent more hucks to flat or into the face of a jump during race practice than while casually cruising at the park and the resulting forces were a lot higher than any big but clean jump at the park. This whole "for racing only" (FRO) thing has hugely backfired for Intense already in the past and pretty much made it a meme, when people were folding those bikes left right and center. Most people will use this for what it appears to be on the surface, a pedalable bike that´s meant to be hammered down a hill. Few will even realize they´re supposed to buy an aditional dh or freeride bike for park days. I see fun times ahead in the Canyon warranty department and can already picture all the angry forum threads about how the new Strive is a tin can.

Review: The 2022 Canyon Strive is Longer, Slacker, & Still Has a Shapeshifter
Came here to say the same thing. A race bike needs to be able to take a beating, period. And with those geometry numbers it´s meant to be mercilessly hammered down a hill. What´s the point in making this thing a pure race bike when the riding reality of most folks out there doesn´t consist of only enduro race tracks? Is this really supposed to be for race weekends only and anyone who buys this needs to also purchase a dh bike for park days and a freeride bike for hucking the local hill? Seems kinda off the mark, especially when other manufacturers do not have that limitation and Canyon´s bike isn´t even exceptionally light. As it stands, to me this is a niche item with questionable manufacturer backing. I really overall like the bike, but that limitation is a major turnoff.

That press release could have been so much shorter. They kept repeating the same points over and over and over again.

Is it even new if it doesn´t have a high pivot?
