The Canfield Brothers and DVO expand their partnership by offering DVO shocks as OE on both the Riot and Ballance frames. 


Canfield Brothers Offers DVO Rear Shocks as Original Equipment


Boutique brand adds DVO rear shocks as stock and upgrade options on all-mountain frames and completes.

BELLINGHAM, WA (January 16, 2017)Canfield Brothers, high-end boutique mountain bike manufacturer, announced today it will offer its Riot and Balance all-mountain frames and Factory Builds with the DVO Suspension Topaz T3 Air shock as standard equipment, and the Jade coil shock as an available upgrade for an additional $100.

“We’re proud to offer a premium suspension product like the DVO Topaz standard on our frames,” said Vin Quenneville, director of sales. “The performance and tunability is the perfect compliment to our patented CBF suspension.” 

The 140-millimeter travel Riot 29er and 165-millimeter travel 27.5 Balance are designed around the active and efficient CBF suspension and are optimized to work with air or coil shocks, depending on rider preference.


The DVO Topaz T3 Air shock features “on-the-fly” compression and rebound adjustment, as well as both positive and negative air volume tuning for a more progressive or linear feel. Bladder pressure adjustment allows for fine tuning of small bump compliance and damping. Other features include a high-volume piston, cooling fins, and Trelleborg seals.


The DVO Jade Coil shock features an externally adjustable shim stack for easy tuning and loader style compression circuits. A stiction-free compression bladder allows riders to dial in small bump compliance. Other features include a high-flow piston and cooling fins.

“All of us at DVO Suspension are extremely excited to be expanding our strong partnership with Canfield Brothers,” said Bryson Martin Jr., DVO’s marketing manager. 

“DVO Suspension and Canfield share the same design philosophy of engineering and designing products from the rider’s perspective. The mutual mindset of creating products for riders, by riders is what makes the partnership so special. Canfield Brothers bikes have played a major role in the development of our suspension products. We genuinely feel that the suspension kinematics are some of the best in the industry and mate with our shocks perfectly. Their designs allow the shock to work how it’s designed to. The linkage design doesn’t over-work the shock or mask it with any ‘funky performance features.’ You get absolute performance without all the gimmicks.”

Riot and Balance frames and Factory Builds will be available with the DVO Topaz T3 Air or optional Jade coil upgrade in the Canfield Brothers web store beginning immediately. The Cane Creek DB Air CS will still be available as an OEM option at no additional charge. The PUSH Industries Eleven Six coil shock is also available as an upgrade for an additional charge. DVO Diamond and Emerald forks are also available with frame packages and Factory Builds.


Canfield Brothers produce the most sought after high-performance—and fun—bikes and components available. Having continually refined the principles of suspension design and frame geometry ever since Lance and Chris' first handbuilt bikes went on to be Rampage and World Cup tested, the Brothers remain on the cutting edge of what is what is possible between two wheels. Produced in limited quantities to the Brothers’ exacting standards and backed by a commitment to personal customer service and a hands-on consumer-direct approach, you won’t find anything quite like a Canfield Brothers bike.
