Product Description

Striking a balance between efficient pedaling and all-out descending—an elusive feat claimed by many, realised by few. The all-new Canfield Brothers Balance is slacker, lower, faster and stronger, yet thanks to the patented Canfield Balance Formula suspension, it is an incredibly efficient pedaler capable of earning its turns.

Based on the efficient all-rounder that the Bros. rolled out in 2014, but calling on the hucking heritage of the original pedalable freeride rig that debuted a decade ago, the 2017 Canfield Brothers Balance was re-engineered with longer travel (165 millimeters) and a lower leverage ratio for more consistent, smooth travel under hard riding, and a more progressive end stroke to swallow big hits. An all-new CNC’ded upper link increases stiffness, while a redesigned rear triangle improves tire clearance, and the entire frame is now crafted from bombproof 7005-series aluminum.

Combining the active CBF suspension with the rolling advantages of 27.5-inch wheels results in a fast, responsive ride, while handling is kept playful and confident with a slack 65-degree head-angle and even shorter 420-millimeter (16.5-inch) chainstays.

Long before the “E” word, The Bros. had their own idea of what an all-mountain bike should be—just as capable of flagrant disregard for line choice and taking big hits in stride as it is of getting you to the top under your own power. The 2017 Balance is perhaps the purest form of that yet—an aggressive all-mountain machine that’s just as at home in the bike park as it is earning it on a backcountry epic or blazing first descents.

What others say:-

“The Balance stands out because of its mix of responsiveness and stability. That was the balance I found in the Balance. Not a machine between XC and DH, but one between rally car and trophy truck. The geometry is fast enough to keep up with you, while the suspension tempts you to be fast enough to keep up with it.” – Bike mag | Read the full review

“Canfield doesn’t like to use the word Enduro, but this bike is aimed at that market. It’s designed to be an aggressive bike for ripping anything you throw at it, be that the bike park or grunting up to get to some big alpine descent.” – nsmb.com | Read the full review

“I was instructed to build a bitchin’ bike that was ready for anything. …we decided to build a shorter travel mini-DH bike that is pedal friendly, ready for shuttle days but also capable of riding the lifts at Whistler. I wanted something that was sturdy, slack, sexy and unique.” (‘Dream Build’) – decline
