Canfield Lithium Review - The Loam Wolf
We were stoked when the boys at The Loam Wolf wanted to include the Lithium, our long-travel 29er built around the patented Canfield Balance Formula suspension system, in their "2022 Enduro Bike Shootout." After spending some time aboard the Lithium, it was their turn to be stoked.
"Without a doubt, the Canfield Lithium surprised our riders more than any other bike in the shootout," they wrote. "Perhaps it was because we didn’t know what to expect, but the fact a small, independent brand can put out a bike that hangs with the big dogs on almost every kind of trail is impressive."
After testing the Lithium at Mount Bachelor and surrounding areas, the crew was collectively impressed by the CBF suspension performance up and down the mountain as well as how playful and responsive it was for a long-travel 29er.
"...our riders all commented on how active and fluttery the rear end was as we tackled trails day after day. The short rear end worked with the CBF suspension platform to give a very active and lively rear end. The Lithium really liked pumping and eking more speed out of every transition possible."
"The Lithium really liked pumping and eking more speed out of every transition possible."
"Luckily, the Canfield Lithium is also a very capable pedaler and unbelievably only ways a few ounces more than our fully carbon Specialized Enduro," The Loam Wolf continued. "At just over 33.7 pounds, we couldn’t believe a small brand was able to create an affordable, aluminum bike that hangs this well."
