Amid Great Anticipation, Two New 29ers from Canfield Bikes

 
Canfield Bikes, high-end boutique mountain bike manufacturer, today introduces two all-new 29-inch mountain bikes built around the patented Canfield Balance Formula suspension system. The Tilt, a mid-travel trail bike features 138 millimeters of rear-wheel travel and a 140-millimeter fork. The Lithium, a long-travel AM/enduro bike, boasts 163 millimeters of rear-wheel travel paired with a 170-millimeter fork.

“We’re stoked to introduce new bikes that combine big wheels with the magic of CBF suspension and legendary Canfield performance,” said Lance Canfield, owner and designer. “I’ve been working on dialing these in for a long time and they are exactly the bikes I wanted to build. I can’t wait for everyone to ride them.”

CANFIELD LITHIUM

  • 29-inch wheels
  • 163mm rear travel
  • 170mm front travel

Meet the new maniac on the mountain. Introducing the Lithium, an all-new long-travel 29er worthy of wearing a skull on the head tube. Designed to destroy big descents with reckless abandon, unafraid of the effort required to earn them. From enduro stages to bike park laps and backcountry adventures, the Lithium is a big-wheeled warrior ready for anything the mountain throws your way thanks to the secret sauce of the patented Canfield Balance Formula suspension.

With either 163 or 151 millimeters of rear wheel travel (adjustable via shock stroke) paired to the active and efficient CBF tuned linkage, the Lithium is born in the lineage of the legendary Balance. Thanks to 29-inch wheels, it’s got even more of a penchant for ludicrous speed and stands ready to flatten any terrain and wage all-out war on the Strava segments of lesser bikes.

Don’t think for a second fun was forgone in favor of going flat out. The signature Canfield geo has been optimized to create a bike as lively and intuitive as it is stable and confidence inspiring. The 430-millimeter chainstays make last-second maneuvers and manuals second nature, and a 64.5-degree head angle paired with a 170-millimeter fork makes any line choice possible.

The Canfield Lithium is the drug of choice for gravity junkies afflicted by big climbs standing between them and their fix. Available in Milton Lava Red with grey links and Bandit Black with gold links.

CANFIELD TILT

  • 29-inch wheels
  • 138mm rear travel
  • 140mm front travel

There’s a party on the trails and you’re invited. The Tilt is an all-new 29er trail-slayer built around the patented Canfield Balance Formula suspension. Picking up where the revered Riot (Toir) left off, the Tilt is a mid-travel 29-inch mountain bike designed from the dirt up to be the most fun you can have on two wheels, whether it’s an after-work rip or an all-day epic.

With either 138 or 125 millimeters of rear wheel travel (adjustable via shock stroke) paired to CBF linkage that’s been tuned to be slightly more progressive, the Tilt is an efficient all-rounder that climbs like a mountain goat with a meth habit. But make no mistake—like any bike with a skull on the headtube, it’s ready to party when gravity takes over.

The geo has been dialed to strike the perfect balance of snappy, responsive handling and stability at speed. A 65-degree head angle leads the charge when the going gets rowdy and 425-millimeter chainstays let you change direction just by thinking about your next line choice. A 77-degree effective seat angle keeps you in the power position while climbing.

The Canfield Tilt is destined to be your weapon of choice regardless of where the ride takes you. Available in Walter White with blue links or Goblin Green with silver links.

While both frames share the familiar Canfield aesthetic, there’s more than meets the eye. Both bikes feature a new internal cable routing system with interchangeable machined ports designed to accommodate one, two, three or zero cables at the various entry/exit points. An all-new forged clamshell bottom bracket assembly reduces the number of individual welded parts, simplifying production, ensuring precise frame alignment and creating an even stronger junction between the down tube, seat tube and linkage.
