Constructed from 7005 aluminum, the Jedi has an 83mm bottom bracket shell, 1.5” headtube, ISCG 05 tabs, and a 150 x 12mm rear thru-axle, features that have become the norm on most modern downhill bikes. Oversized, 20mm pivot bearings are meant to be able to withstand the harshest conditions, and a replaceable derailleur hanger is in place in case things don't go exactly as planned. A skull head badge combined with the black polished graphics give the Jedi a stealthy, menacing aura – this bike looks ready for some serious hard charging. The frame is available in anodized black, with several different link colors, including a limited edition green that is color matched to DVO's new Emerald fork.
The Jedi uses a parallel link suspension layout, where two aluminum links are in place between the front and rear triangle. For 2014 the bike's kinematics have been tweaked slightly to give it a more linear suspension rate, although the large amount of rearward travel that the bike is known for remains unchanged. While slightly rearward axle paths are fairly common, the Jedi takes things a step further – the back wheel has a full 2.5” of rearward movement as it goes through its travel. The intention of this design is to keep the bike from hanging up on square edge bumps, the type of obstacles that sap forward momentum. To deal with the chain growth and pedal feedback that can accompany such a large amount of rearward travel, a titanium idler pulley is located above the chain ring, in line with the bottom bracket. Canfield also incorporates short 16” (406.4mm) chainstays to allow the Jedi to remain nimble with their rearward arc suspension design.
