THE ORIGINAL CBF BIKES // Shop all CBF Mountain Bikes

Collection: Balance - AM/Enduro 27.5

27.5" WHEELS // 169mm REAR // 170mm FRONT

Pedal. Send. Repeat. The Balance is our idea of what an all-mountain enduro 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. Featuring 169mm of patented CBF suspension, it's one of the best-descending—and best-pedaling—bikes in its category.

"What surprised me most about the CBF design wasn’t how well it climbed and pedaled (it performed incredibly in that metric, but I expect all bikes to pedal well nowadays), but how exceptional the suspension felt in action. The success of CBF is that it allows for great pedaling performance without sacrificing either high-speed or low-speed suspension performance." - Mountain Flyer

"Heading down the trails and ripping through turns is what the Balance loves to do most. This downhill bruiser is built tough and uses its long-travel coil suspension to provide a traction-filled, ultra-plush ride down the trails. The Balance loves descending with vision-blurring speed." - Mountain Bike Action

"...if it was the suspension that helped make the bike’s extra weight disappear on the climbs, the geometry was doing the same on the descents. And boy, if you like sneaking manuals in when you see a high-speed dip or low-speed drop, this is your bike. The rear wheel felt like an extension of my body." - Beta MTB

"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."
