Cannondale Trail 5 2018 Bike
Killer value and unreal MTB performance. The Cannondale Trail 5 is a hardtail mountain bike that features progressive geometry with capable components for confident cross-country riding.
Bringing a level of performance and handling normally reserved for higher end mountain bikes, the Cannondale Trail has been completely redesigned for 2018. 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 29” wheels on the medium, large and X large frame sizes offer rapid rolling performance on all types of terrain. Smaller riders will prefer the fit and balanced performance of the 27.5” wheels on the small sized Cannondale Trail 5.
The SR Suntour XCR fork features lightweight magnesium lowers and offers 100mm of suspension travel to tame the trail. A remote lockout switch allows you to firm up the suspension from smooth sections without taking your hands off the bars. The Shimano Deore 2x10 speed drivetrain offers reliable shifting with a wide range of gears for taking on all the climbs on your route. Shimano hydraulic disc brakes deliver confident speed control in all weather conditions.
Discover the thrill of the trail on the Cannondale Trail 5 29er hardtail MTB.
