One of the most revered downhill bikes on the market, the legendary Jedi is a two-wheeled weapon engineered to destroy the roughest tracks in the world, and the latest generation is more dialed than ever. With a gravity pedigree refined through years of racing and riding by The Bros., Chris and Lance Canfield, the Jedi is given the unnatural ability to maintain its speed and actually accelerate through rough terrain by the Canfield Formula 1 Suspension Design. Combining 9 inches of vertical travel with 3 inches of rearward, the Jedi shrugs off square-edged impacts that slow down other designs while maintaining a more consistent and stable wheelbase under compression. Canfield’s famous slack and low geometry has been updated for the maximized rollover and traction of 27.5-inch wheels while maintaining 422-millimeter (16.6-inch) chainstays for snappy handling with an ultra-stable 62.5-degree head angle.

Canfield Brothers Formula 1 Suspension

Combining 9 inches of vertical travel with 3 inches of rearward, the Formula 1 Suspension shrugs off square-edged impacts that slow down other designs. This is achieved as the rear wheel moves up AND back out of the way of impacts, versus packing up into trail obstacles as with more traditional designs. Riders have described the Jedi as “hovering” in rough terrain. Not only does the bike simply glance off impacts and keep accelerating, but the rearward axle path is more in line with the front wheel’s axle path along the plane of fork travel, maintaining a more consistent and stable wheelbase under compression, versus more traditional designs that actually result in the wheelbase shrinking under compression leading to decreased stability when you need it most. To further keep the rider in control, the idler pulley isolates pedaling forces and negates any braking or suspension feedback.


“Think about the kind of trail that IMBA would approve of: well thought out drainage, manageable grades, and a user friendly trail tread. Now imagine of the exact opposite of that, and that’s what the Jedi is good on. The Canfield Bros 27.5 Jedi is an insanely stable bike that plows through the gnarliest, roughest trails more efficiently than just about any other bike I’ve ridden.”  – Blister Gear Review | Read the full review

“If what you’re looking for is the same experience you had with your last bike – don’t get a Jedi. Abandon the way you used to set up and ride your old bike – that’s history now. This Jedi is different, it’s not just marketing hype, and the design can be a game changer for you. The Jedi is my first DH bike where I have experienced the feeling of how smooth higher speeds can be.  In rocky, ledgy sections of the trail this bike begs for you to just let off the brakes, look forward and smile.” – Double Black Bikes | Read the full review
