Canfield Brothers Jedi

The 2015 Canfield Brothers 27.5 Jedi. We just made fast even faster!

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 16.6-inch chainstays for snappy handling with an ultra-stable 62.5-degree head angle.

Canfield Brothers Formula 1 Suspension Design

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.
