Cannondale has always marched to their own beat, building the bikes that they want. This has created a legacy of unique bikes and ground-breaking technology, and has gained them a loyal fan base that would purchase their products above all else and recite the stiffness to weight advantage of the Lefty fork above any challenger. But it has also limited their customer base and made engineering very expensive, as they’ve had to pave their own R&D trail.
Well, a switch seems to have flipped, as they are now attacking the market with more mainstream offerings to address what all mountain riders want to buy. But they’re still putting their own unique Cannondale twist here and there where they feel it offers an advantage.
What they’ve come up with is a 27.5 enduro bike with Fox front and rear suspension and 170mm front and 165mm of rear travel. It’s slack with a 65-degree head angle, and pedal ready with a 75-degree seat tube angle. Reach is long, chainstays are short, and it’s shipped with a wide bar and stubby stem.
Other spec highlights include SRAM Eagle 1×12, Maxxis Minion tires, Fabric saddle, and a Race Face dropper. And that build sells for a hair under $6000. There’s also a $7750 model with carbon wheels, plus $4200 and $3200 builds.
