Float over trail obstacles with Cannondale's F29 2. It sports large 29-inch wheels that plow through dips, bumps and soft terrain like nobody's business. For rocket-like climbing, the F29 boasts a lightweight, efficient aluminum frame with dialed geometry that deftly pilots you through techy trails. Up front, Cannondale's innovative Lefty 29er fork smooths rough terrain with 90mm of plush travel. Add WTB rims, grippy WTB knobbies, a Shimano drivetrain and Magura brakes to the mix, and you've got a steed that's built for covering a ton singletrack in a very, very short amount of time.
Cannondale's SPEED SAVE rear stays create a micro suspension system that allows the rear wheel to track the ground, improving comfort, control, traction and handling. This allows the bike to roll faster, accelerate better and corner harder without affecting pedaling efficiency.
BB30 is an oversize bottom bracket standard that boosts stiffness and decreases weight. BB30 bottom bracket bearings are pressed directly into compatible frames, meaning there are no heavy external cups to thread in. And, BB30 cranksets feature 30mm-diameter spindles (standard spindles are smaller) for greater pedaling efficiency and increased power transfer.
