Cannondale's Trigger 4 is ready for any trail, any time! Cannondale built their reputation on aluminum frames, and their revolutionary SmartFormed tech expands on that with a low weight and unmatched ride quality. Up front, a 140mm Fox 32 Evolution fork leads the way, and out back a Fox DYAD shock boasts 140mm of rider-tunable, big-hit-swallowing suspension that can be adjusted, by a bar-mounted lever, to 85mm when it's time to ascend. When you're looking for a drivetrain to get you up, down, and everywhere in between, Shimano's SLX components deliver with light, fast shifting, an all-mountain capable triple-chainring setup. If things start to get a little too zesty you can always rely on Shimano's SLX hydraulic discs to get things back under control. The whole rig rolls on sturdy, tubeless-ready WTB rims with Formula hubs. Topped off with a killer selection of Cannondale's own parts and a sleek, supportive WTB saddle, this trail-tamer is ready for any trail, any time.

The Cannondale/Fox DYAD Rear Shock.

With Fox's DYAD RT2 rear shock, you can have the best possible performance across the widest spectrum of terrain. Developed in collaboration with Cannondale, the dual-travel, dual-personality DYAD RT2 is actually two completely different shocks housed in one package: Elevate – a shorter travel, smaller volume air shock for rolling and climbing terrain, and Flow – a longer travel, high volume linear air shock for aggressive descending.

Activated on the fly by a handlebar-mounted lever, each mode has its own dedicated damping circuits, fully optimized for the intended terrain. Switching between the Elevate and Flow modes also changes the bike's sag point and geometry. In Elevate mode, the bike rides higher, resulting in steeper head and seat angles and keeping the rider in a better position for climbing and tight technical terrain. In Flow mode, the bottom bracket drops, lowering the center of gravity and making the angles slack and stable, perfect for charging descents.

Comments:

I really went around in circles for a month trying to find the right bike. I test drove a few different 29'ers and liked the overall speed of them but when the trail gets tricky, the bike was frozen like a deer in headlights... good thing those big tires can go over, bc it has a tough time going around. The front rake on a 140mm travel bike with a 29er on it is like maneuvering a submarine... that's not downhill racing! The 650B Cannondale Trigger was quick, nibble, hops over anything it can't maneuver around and good looking. I got so stoked on the price drop and had to pull the trigger ;) Great bike, no regrets, but I am adding a seat dropper (reverb). Makes life so much easier. Enjoy!
