The 2018 Cannondale Habit 5 sits in the middle of the aluminium Cannondale Habit bikes and has slightly shorter travel than the higher end models. The 2018 Cannondale Habit 5 comes with 120mm travel front and rear whereas the higher end models all have 130mm at the front. However, the Habit 5 comes with exactly the same frame, wheels, brakes and gears as the more expensive Habit 4, making it a great spec for the price.
Sorted trail geometry and a balanced rider position (optimized for short stems) gives the Habit awesome trail manners, up or down. The Zero-Pivot seat stays and LockR pivots keep the rear end light, stiff and oh so efficient. With wide bars, a short stem, big brake rotors and wide, trail-gripping rims and tires, the Habit is ready to rip off the showroom floor.
The 2018 Cannondale Habit has been described as a perfect do it all bike. It was a solid favourite with Cycles UK staff at our 2018 Mountain Bike Demo Day for its fast handling and solid ability to climb fast, descend fast and do everything in between fast. The Cannondale Habit is capable enough to run with bigger-travel bikes, yet light and lively enough to put the hurt on the shavedleg XC set. The Cannondale Habit is mainly concerned with delivering the most important kind of MTB performance - pure, simple, trail-ripping fun! If you’re looking for one bike to do it all, make it a Habit.
Beautifully agile and ultra-capable of handling anything the mountain can throw at you. The Habit is your go to bike to keep you riding and put a massive smile on your face.
