The Cannondale Trigger Carbon/Alloy 3 Mountain Bike 2018 is all out & all in. The new Trigger introduces a killer new dual-mode, dual-travel shock alongside an Ai-driven, all-mountain attack geometry, delivering on the premise of a ride that lives for big days in the big mountains. A potent combo of slack 66 head tube angle, short stays and steep seat angle gives the Trigger 2018 drop-eating stability. Flickable agility and climb-crushing abilities, all in one confident machine. Asymmetric Integration delivers some of the shortest stays on the trail for unbeatable traction & agility, while also maintaining max-tyre clearance & frame stiffness. Plus a stiffer, stronger rear wheel thanks to the Ai even-dish build. A dual-mode, dual travel Fox Gemini shock is what separates the Cannondale Trigger from its competition, opening up a world of possibilities with on-the-fly terrain optimisation. 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 delivers control & confidence when you hit more technical, rough terrain.
