Feel the difference advanced MTB frame technology can offer from the first pedal stroke. The Cannondale Trail 1 is a women’s specific hardtail mountain bike for riding everywhere from smooth cycle paths to full blown MTB trails.
The all-new Women’s Cannondale Trail brings a level of performance and handling normally reserved for higher end mountain bikes. Women’s trail geometry features a low standover height and offers an ideal fit as well as confident handling on the trail. The SmartFormed C2 aluminium alloy frame features a thoroughly modern geometry, with a slack 68 degree head angle and longer top tube which offers stable handling at speed and on steep descents. The short chainstays keep things nimble in the tight while the short stem and wide bars maximise control on rough terrain.
The 27.5” wheels on the Cannondale Trail are ideal for smaller riders and offer the ideal balance between nimble handling and rapid rolling performance on every frame size. Women’s specific components include the saddle and the slightly narrower (than the unisex models) handlebars.
It is great to see a 1x10 speed drivetrain on the women’s Trail 1. You still get plenty of gears for taking on the climbs, as the overall gear range is similar to a 2x drivetrain. The big difference is that a 1x drivetrain is much easier to use as well as being more reliable. Shimano hydraulic disc brakes give you plenty of stopping power in the descents. The RockShox XC 30 suspension fork delivers 100mm of plush suspension control up front and features adjustable rebound damping so you can get the fork just right for you riding style.
Ride with more confidence on the Cannondale Trail 1 women’s hardtail MTB.
