Pedal. Send. Repeat. The Balance is our 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 4th generation of our 27.5-inch-wheeled quiver-killing trail-slayer retains the iconic shape of its predecessor, but beneath the surface it's longer, lower, slacker and packing more travel. The 2020 Canfield Balance features 169 millimeters of rear travel, boost spacing, a custom CBF chainstay protector, refreshed geometry and longer reach across all sizes.

A slacker 64-degree head-angle and longer front center combined with a 170-millimeter fork encourage you to take the hot line, while short 16.5-inch chainstays allow you to snap corners and take names.

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 when you need it most while offering a predictable bottomless feel.

The 2020 Canfield Balance is available in two new metallic-flake factory colors, Desert Loam and Deep Space.

There is also 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 Limited Edition will be produced.

* Photos of bike/spec may vary slightly from actual spec based upon pre-production frame and availability of parts. Any substituted parts will be of equal or greater value than original option listed. Complete bikes ship as a frame and build kit. While frames are prepped, reamed, chased and faced, they do require experienced assembly. If you are not confident in fully assembling and tuning your new Canfield bike, we recommend visiting your favorite local bike shop.

Please note that shipping rates for frames will include insurance, but our default shipping rates for complete bikes does not include insurance. Please email us if you would like to add insurance to your complete bike build (typically $35-$45).
