There’s a theory that more rubber on the ground means more smiles on your face, and you only have to look to the Cannondale Bad Habit 1 full sus MTB for the proof.
The Cannondale Bad Habit mountain bike takes all the awesome trail-shredding features of the Habit, gives it a set of meaty 3-inch-wide 27.5+ tyres, and turns it into something that is so exciting that your mother wouldn’t approve of it. After all, bad habits are the most fun! Big tyres = more grip, more float over rocks and ruts, and a bike that can take a more aggressive ride.
The Bad Habit 1 features a SmartForm C1 alloy frame that has been designed from scratch to suit the plus-tyre size. Cannondale have gone all out to make every angle, tube and fork dimension perfect to deliver the fast & fun MTB handling characteristics that make this bike an absolute joy to ride.
Cannondale’s much-lauded Lefty 2.0 fork, with its Isolated Damper technology and a Trail+ tune, hugs the surface of the mountain for maximum grip. The fork has been optimised with a 51mm offset specifically for the Bad Habit to help perfect the handling on the extra-wide tyres. Round the back there is a Rockshox Monarch RL shock to take care of the 120mm rear suspension travel, keeping the tyre in contact with the ground unless you point the bike skywards.
SRAM’s GX 1×11 speed gears take care of the drivetrain, with a wide-range 10-42t cassette so you won’t miss your granny ring when climbing up steep trails. As you blast back down the other side of the mountain, the Shimano Deore hydraulic disc brakes have ample stopping power so you can take full advantage of the plus-tyre grip. You’ll be braking harder, later and faster than you thought possible.
