2011 – 2013 Canfield Brothers The One

The ability to pedal to the top of your local mountain and ride EVERY jump on the way down has never been more of an option for people! The One excels at not only descending, but also lives for the climbs! This is the best pedaling bike in its class! The ONE suspension creates a seamless transition between pedal efficiency and bump eating performance. The beauty of this bike lies in its simplicity. No knobs or lock out buttons to press on the climbs. Set the rear shock up for the down and start pedaling, The ONE takes care of the climbing for you! Giving you 7 -8” wheel travel while still being light enough to keep up with bikes ½ its travel, The ONE really is the “one” bike to do everything!

2013 The ONE Owner’s Manual


“I feel like Canfield has made a bike that is as good as the best, then given it something special (locking suspension) that puts it above and beyond the rest. For those who have always been unsure of buying a more DH oriented bike let your worries go. I always thought I would be sacrificing something I loved by not being able to climb and ride some of the things I used to ride by getting a bike with so much suspension. I couldn’t have been more wrong. Everything I loved was enhanced. I gained more than I thought in every aspect of riding. I hardly dare ride the bikes I used to ride because they feel so awkward and lacking.  All the years I wasted by listening to what other people assumed about bigger travel bikes is maddening.  This bike really is that good.

Pedaling is excellent. Geometry is spot on for the entire spectrum. Due to the locking rear suspension in climbs far better than any xc, all-mountain, enduro, or FR bike I’ve been on. Supple, plush, and fluid suspension descends as good as the best DH bikes out there. It is as smooth as the specialized demo 8. (The only DH bike that I’ve tried with superior feeling suspension is the Canfield Jedi). Stable in the air. Built like a tank, it is very stiff. Corners like mad. Customer service is top notch.”
