2024 Canyon Strive: On eMTB | Trail Tested



Presented by O’Neal

Canyon is a German bicycle manufacturer that began importing high-quality road, gravel, and mountain bikes into the United States several years ago. We first became aware of the brand when Ken Roczen left his long-time bike sponsor to rep the brand from his home country and we’ve been longing to throw a leg over a Canyon MTB for some time now. Last year at the Salt Lake City Supercross, Roczen had his signature Canyon eMTB on display in his pits and we spent more time talking with him about bikes than moto! A few weeks ago, we were stoked to receive an invite from the Canyon US crew to try out the 2024 Canyon Strive: On eMTB. We came away very impressed after our initial ride with Canyon racing hero Luca Cometti, Brand Manager Scot Hart, and Bosch’s Kevin Haynes, and we’ve logged over a dozen more hours on the bike in the time since. Our senior MTB test rider Andre Budilo logged some time on the Strive: On and was super pumped on the bike as a whole, as it carried him to several new downhill PRs and even one Strava KOM. If you haven’t checked out Canyon before you really should. Our Strive: On Underdog retails for $4799 and it packs a ton of bang for the buck!
