Ever the innovators, Cannondale have coined a catchy alternative to the hybrid handle. Fifty-Fifty perfectly describes a bike thats equally fit for the streets or the trails. Its also your introduction to Shimanos new 8-spd Nexus hub gears.
- HeadShok Super Fatty Ultra DL All Conditions - the 2.9lb/1.27kg 80mm-travel fork.
- With HeadShok the suspension elements are enclosed in the headtube, not the fork legs. The result: zero leg deflection; while the head tube rolls on needle bearings, hence less stiction.
- Optimo HeadShok - Cannondales lightest MTB frame. Features compliant Hourglass stays.
- Nexus Inter-8 internal hub gears, now with a 307% high-low difference (Nexus 7 has a 244% high-low difference). Modern hub gears are the perfect solution if youre the type of rider who wears out your derailleur drivetrain every year or 2.
