Riot

The Bros. changed the industry’s perception of 29er handling in 2011 with the first production 29er with sub-17-inch chainstays and a playful and nimble ride. Today, the Canfield Brothers Riot pushes the bar further than ever, boasting the most aggressive 29er geometry to hit a full-suspension trail bike to date. Coupling 140 millimeters of the revolutionary active and efficient patented Balance Formula travel with the slack-and-low geometry Canfield Brothers is known for, the Riot is the most fun full-suspension 29er to ever hit the trail, up or down. Radically short 414-millimeter (16.3-inch) chainstays will let you snap turns like no one with big wheels should, while the 66.5-degree head angle gives you confidence where it counts. This ain’t your dad’s 29er.

Reviews

“It’s a blissfully snappy ride that will make you forget you’re rolling on wagon wheels. Indeed, this bike is quick and nimble like a race car, not slow and Cadillac sluggish like the first gen of longer travel 29ers. The only time I thought much about wheel size was when I was blasting through high speed chunder or clawing over wheel-stopper rocks on slow, techy climbs. In both instances, I was smiling.” – MTBR.com | Read the full review

“Canfield’s Riot takes mountain biking’s biggest wheel size, with its superior abilities to roll over jumbled terrain and maintain grip to the ground, and made a downhill shredder that simply felt unfazed at all times. 140mm of travel hits a nice limit of travel with the big wheels that allows the Riot to monster truck down gnarly downhills while still being nimble and pedalable enough for a trail ride that doesn’t require a Korn (yes!) soundtrack.” – Teton Gravity Research | Read the full review 

“It has 140 millimeters of patent[ed] Canfield Balance Formula suspension which delivers true anti-squat performance and is not effected by chainring size or where the bike is in its travel. It also decouples the suspension from the rear brake, which reduces the abilities of the brake to affect the suspension’s action, also known as ‘brake jack.’ It has a playful demeanor with good overall balance and dependable, quick steering response.” – Bicycling | Watch the full review
