The result is 160mm of progressive rear wheel travel paired to 170mm forks ( just like the regular Strive) but with geometry more suited to the always-on-pedaling nature of racing eMTBs through extremely technical terrain and a ride feel that maintains handling stiffness while not beating the rider up.

MTB legend Fabien Barel – who rode the regular Strive to its first EWS win back in 2013 – explained to us how developing the […]
