There’s a party on the trails and you’re invited. Introducing the Tilt, a 29er trail-slayer built around the patented Canfield Balance Formula™ suspension. Picking up where the revered Riot (Toir) left off, the Tilt is a mid-travel 29-inch mountain bike designed from the dirt up to be the most fun you can have on two wheels, whether it’s an after-work rip or an all-day epic.

With either 138 or 125 millimeters of rear wheel travel (adjustable via shock stroke) paired to CBF  linkage, the Tilt is an efficient all-rounder that climbs like a mountain goat with a meth habit. But make no mistake—like any bike with a skull on the headtube, it’s ready to party when gravity takes over.

CBF  has been refined even further for the Tilt. The result is anti-squat that is more focused in the ideal range throughout the entire range of travel. An updated leverage curve creates more beginning and mid-stroke support for an even better pedaling platform, and slightly more progressive end of stroke ramp-up. But the benefits don't end at pedaling efficiency. Chaingrowth has been reduced, resulting in even less pedal kickback to keep you glued to the pedals under hard compressions. And anti-rise values are lower for more composed braking and preserved geometry when you throw out the anchor on steep sections of trail. 

We dialed the geo to strike the perfect balance of snappy, responsive handling and stability at speed. A 65-degree head angle leads the charge when the going gets rowdy and 425-millimeter chainstays let you change direction just by thinking about your next line choice. A 77-degree effective seat angle keeps you in the power position while climbing. We’ve also refined the reach, stack, seat tube length and standover across all sizes for a better fit.

While the Tilt’s frame may look familiar at first glance, there’s more than meets the eye. An all-new clamshell bottom bracket assembly reduces the number of individual welded parts, simplifying production, ensuring precise frame alignment and creating an even stronger junction between the down tube, seat tube and linkage.

A beautifully machined 7075 T6 alloy one-piece upper link inspired by our big-hit bikes like the Balance and ONE.2 paired with an all-new rear triangle have significantly increased overall stiffness and handling compared to its predecessor. One-piece forged vertical stays are at the heart of the redesigned rear triangle, maximizing stiffness, strength and durability. A horizontal seat stay brace ties it all together, further bolstering lateral stiffness. 

The Canfield Tilt is destined to be your weapon of choice regardless of where the ride takes you.

Party up. Party down. Party on.
