FIRST LOOK: CANFIELD’S NIMBLE 9 GETS A FRESH PAINT JOB

Press Release: Canfield Bikes 

FRUITA, CO (November 28, 2023) – Canfield Bikes has opened pre-orders on a limited spring 2024 run of its iconic steel hardtail, the Nimble 9, in three all-new metallic finishes: Bug Zapper Blue, Purple Haze, and Galaxy Black.

Now in its 5th generation, the Canfield Nimble 9 was perhaps the first steel hardtail to make fun its top priority back in 2010. While things have gotten longer, lower, and slacker, the spirit remains the same. Built around aggressive all-mountain geometry and a 150mm fork, the N9 strikes the sweet spot between confident descending and zippy, playful handling, yet remains undeterred by steep climbs standing between it and gravity-fed redemption.

“The N9 just wants to jump and play and encourages you to take lines that you never thought you would on a hardtail.

“We love our full suspension bikes,” says Lance. “But there is something so simple and fun about a steel hardtail with dialed geo. The N9 just wants to jump and play and encourages you to take lines that you never thought you would on a hardtail.”

A 66-degree head-angle dares you to drop in, and short chainstays (adjustable down to 16.33 inches/415mm via sliding dropouts) make sure the Nimble 9 lives up to its name.

Combining the revered ride quality of 4130 chromoly steel with vertically compliant, radial-bent seat-stays, the N9 challenges preconceptions of mountain bikes with rigid rear-ends by offering an exceptionally smooth, forgiving, yet responsive ride quality.

The 2024 Nimble 9 is available as a frame only, frame & fork combo, or as a complete bike with all-new Core and Pro builds. Available now at special pre-order discounted pricing with April 2024 expected delivery.
