The New Canfield DH Bike ONE.2 can Climb, if Necessary

The Canfield ONE.2 is a versatile downhill mountain bike.

Ever since Canfield Bikes has been back to business, they have been hard at work rolling new bikes out.

Now, Canfield Bikes has an all new rig out, the ONE.2 downhill bike. The ONE.2 is designed around eight-inches of travel, front and rear, and is made for both 29″ and 27.5″ wheels, or a combination. This DH bike from Canfield is also designed around the Canfield Balance Formula linkage, bringing an efficient pedaling platform to the big bike.

The ONE.2 is inspired by the original Canfield The One, and made to speak for the brand’s gravity riding roots. The 203mm of rear travel can be reduced to 190mm if riders want a little less squish, should they want to pedal up service roads to gnarly tracks. It can also be matched with a 180 or 190mm fork, and there is stealth cable routing for a dropper post.

The ONE.2 comes in three sizes. The head tube angle measures 63°, and there is a steep 76° effective seat angle in case riders do actually want to take it for a climb. Wheelbases are long across all sizes, with the smallest size at 1231mm, and then jumping up by about 30mm in each size. Chainstays are a snappy but stable 440mm across the size run, and the standover height is under 700mm on all sizes, which is promising for shorter riders. Reach is 425mm, 450mm, and 475mm on all three sizes. The ONE.2 is definitely modernized in terms of geometry.

Although the Canfield Balance that was just released a month ago can be had for $3,300 for a complete, the ONE.2 is going to be a little more premium. An aluminum frameset costs $2,300, and a frameset with an Öhlins DH fork costs $3,700. A complete ONE.2 is $5,300. All can be pre-ordered, saving buyers a few hundred dollars.

The complete build comes with an Öhlins rear shock, Spank Vibrocore wheels, a SRAM XO1/GX drivetrain with Canfield cranks, and SRAM Code R brakes. For more information on the ONE.2, check out the Canfield website.
