Canfield Brothers Jedi

The heavily updated 2014 Canfield Brothers Jedi. Featuring a new sleeker front end, 12.5mm longer toptube, increased travel to 230mm, linear progression rate and 63 degree headangle. All making the this the most confidence inspiring Jedi yet!

The Jedi was given the unnatural ability to maintain its speed and actually accelerate in rough terrain. Not only does it gain momentum, but the rider’s pedaling forces are completely isolated from the bikes suspension movements. This is all possible by combining vertical with rearward travel. The right combination of 9″ vertical mixed with 2.5” of rearward travel gives the JEDI the ability to “shrug” off any square edge impact that would slow down other designs. The bike simply glances off of impacts and keeps accelerating. To further keep the rider in control and keep suspension forces isolated, the JEDI also runs a idler pulley which completely negates any pedal feedback associated with a wheelbase lengthening design.

“Without a doubt the Jedi has fast open descending in mind. The rearward wheel path and geometry helped make this bike comfortable eating up big hits at high speeds. With the intention of making this a World Cup-worthy downhill race bike, the Canfields wanted the Jedi to gobble up rough chunder and carry speed over rocks and roots. With 2.5 inches of rearward travel we’d say that it does this well…”

-Decline Magazine, November/December 2012 Issue. Full Review

“The Jedi was a bike I had gotten after swapping around on different frames, all others having the same result, nice plush suspension that never felt “efficient”. It took only 1 run on the Jedi to see its magic, I felt way more comfortable and the speed it would generate was alarming. After getting used to it, I felt that this was the best DH rig I had purchased. I am on my 3rd one and absolutely love them. Rearward travel is the future, especially on the rocky terrain of the East Coast.”

“First off I am not a professional rider nor claim to be. I know each rider has something different he likes, so with that in mind if you are looking for rock gobbling, fluid, crazy control that can take the steepest rocky downhills as well as climb and pedal then you are looking for what I search for. This bike feels far better than any bike I’ve been on and I’ve tried most of them. It is kind of unreal. I attribute that partly to the rearward travel. Half of the riding I do is DH and the other half is on technical, steep, and flat trails and it handles them better than my all-mountain bike used to. My expectations were high and this bike continues to exceeded them all. Canfield is also an amazing company to work with.”
