Canfield Jedi 29 Review - BLISTER
The crew at BLISTER brought our latest 29er DH bike, the Canfield Jedi 29, up to the great PNW to put it through the paces north of the border in Whistler and surrounding terrain earlier this season.
Tester David Golay teased a flash review a little while back, but the full review is finally out!
We've been refining high-pivot, dual-link bikes for more than 20 years, so it was no surprise that he proclaimed the Jedi has "...the best performing rear suspension of any bike I’ve been on recently."
"...the best performing rear suspension of any bike I’ve been on recently."
Golay praised the Jedi for feeling nimble by DH bike standards, but also remarked, "...when things open up and start getting faster, the Jedi 29 feels quite stable and composed, especially when you consider that it’s not a crazy long bike on paper. The suspension just felt smooth, planted, and composed — in a word, excellent."
He continued to praise our high-pivot downhill bike's versatility.
"Its suspension is outstanding, particularly when it comes to carrying speed in rough terrain," writes Golay. "And the Jedi 29 manages to be just a little more nimble and easy to throw around than a lot of similarly-stable bikes (or vice versa)."
