The Cannondale Jekyll Carbon 3 Mountain Bike 2018 Is ready to get after it, switching from flowly, technical descender to an efficient, snappy climber without hesitation. Put simply, the new Jekyll is ready to race, and ready to win every stage. For the geometry, the Cannondale Jekyll 2018 features a 65-degree head tube angle, steep seat tube angle & short 420mm chainstays. Creating a ride that gives you confidence and control on the most demanding terrain. Asymmetric Integration delivers some of the shortest stays on the trail without compromise. This means a frame with way more tyre clearance & frame stiffness than its more traditional competitors. The rear end of the Jekyll is stiffer & stronger thanks to an Ai even-dish rear wheel build, this combination offers an unparalleled level of agility and traction for a full blown Enduro racer. On-the-fly optimisation is the Jekyll’s party piece with the new Fox Gemini shock. Hustle Mode opens-up a more progressive side of the Fox suspension, creating sharper compressions & turns for incredible speed through flat out berms & rollers. Flow Mode on the other hand is the bread and butter set-up for technical, hard hitting terrain, delivering pure unaltered Fox downhill performance.
