Product Description


Using Cannondale’s highly developed CAAD4 aluminium tubing, the tiny frame keeps the rider’s weight above the rear wheel to aid traction and acceleration. We can verify that the bike fits perfectly.... The small frame and sloping top tube allow easier access to the bars, the steering is precise and responsive, balancing feels more natural with a shorter bike to control and the centre of gravity is more central along the wheelbase. The short rear stays put more power through to the back wheel and climbing is a dream with minor position changes providing traction on even the steepest gravelly climbs. Descending is made easy too with the front end feeling quite high and therefore responsive and manageable, even for little arms. The HeadShok fork gives 80mm travel. We found the fork responded well... supple enough to retain an agile and responsive front end.

Summary: The difference is that it really fits. Verdict: Compact, clever design and sweet handling. Performance: 9/10. Value: 8/10.’
