Canfield Bikes introduces fourth-generation Balance

Published January 31, 2020

FRUITA, Colo. (BRAIN) — Mountain bike manufacturer Canfield Bikes today introduced the new Balance, the fourth generation of the brand's signature all-mountain bike. For 2020, the Balance features 169mm of rear travel, boost spacing, a custom CBF chainstay protector, refreshed geometry, and longer reach across all sizes.

The 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 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. 

The bike is built around the patented Canfield Balance Formula suspension system. Canfield has been refining parallel-link suspension for two decades that enhances traction and climbing. 

The Balance features a slack 64-degree head-angle and longer front-center combined with a 170mm fork (and the ability to run up to a 180mm fork) to provide confident descending. Short 16.5-inch chainstays help keep handling nimble and playful.

Available in small, medium, large and extra-large, they are ready for pre-order at as factory build complete bikes, as well as frame, fork and shock, and frame and shock packages.
