The better the spec the more they moan about the colour...
Doddy grabbed this one and made off to Box Woods to play. He came back boasting about how easily he kept up with his full suss companions, which sounds good news for the hardtail. Fin's just taken it on a 25 mile XC thrash which is what it was primarily designed for. This is a light weight XC rig, no doubt about it. And it's all over 'dale.
Cannondale have a reputation for pushing the boundaries of design and releasing new technologies before other manufacturers have got beyond the drawing board stage. We're waiting to see how Fin rates it in its proper element.Special Features:
New Optimo Hardtail frame (86grammes lighter than CAAD5)
HeadShok Super Fatty Ultra DL MINI SPEC DECK
TOP TUBE: 23.3in
