Your intro to the Cannondale Optimo frame. The head tube is externally-butted and internally-machined. The dropouts are light forged. The non-threaded section of the bottom bracket shell is milled. Disc specific, there are no V-brake bosses. Narrow Diameter Hourglass seatstays improve vertical compliance. The top tube is lower. It all adds up to Cannondales lightest ever MTB frame.
- And their lightest HeadShok fork - Super Fatty Ultra DL.
- Hutchinson Spider UST tubeless tyres on Mavic UST rims - further proof that Cannondale don't shy away from leading-edge technology.
