Canfield Bikes Introduces Limited Edition 2020 Balance
High-end mountain-bike manufacturer rolls out 4th generation of signature all-mountain bike with more travel, larger sizing and limited edition frame sets.
FRUITA, CO (January 30, 2020) – Canfield Bikes, high-end boutique mountain bike manufacturer, today introduces the 2020 Canfield Balance, the 4th generation of the brand’s signature all-mountain bike. For 2020, the Balance features 169 millimeters of rear travel, boost spacing, a custom CBF™ chainstay protector, refreshed geometry and longer reach across all sizes.
The 2020 Canfield Balance is available in a Limited Edition version featuring a polished raw mirror-finish aluminum frame, rainbow oil-slick links and a numbered production badge featuring Lance Canfield’s signature. Only 100 will be produced. In addition, the Balance will be available in two new metallic flake factory colors, Desert Loam and Deep Space.
“The Balance embodies our idea of a big-hit all-mountain bike. Efficient enough for all-day epics, but burly enough for chairlift laps and big lines.”
“The Balance embodies our idea of an all-mountain bike. Efficient enough for earning it on all-day epics, but burly enough for chairlift laps and big lines,” said Lance Canfield, CEO and designer.
Built around the patented Canfield Balance Formula™ suspension system, the 2020 Balance is a big-mountain brawler unafraid to earn its turns. Canfield has been refining parallel-link suspension for two decades, and the result is maximum traction, effortless climbing and no room for excuses when the going gets rough.
The Balance’s CBF™ tuned linkage offers smooth, consistent travel and a slightly progressive leverage ratio that makes all 169 millimeters of travel available while offering a predictable bottomless feel.
The 2020 Balance features a slack 64-degree head-angle and longer front center combined with a 170-millimeter fork (with the ability to run up to a 180mm fork) provide confident descending, while short 16.5-inch chainstays keep handling nimble and playful.
The 2020 Balance is available in S, M, L and XL for pre-order now as Factory Build complete bikes, as well as frame, fork & shock and frame & shock packages.
