The name might be old but the Cannondale Beast of the East 3 is a completely new hardtail mountain bike. Featuring 27+ tyres and a confidence inspiring trail geometry the Beast inspires confidence.
27 plus wheels
Built from the ground up to make the best use of the new 27.5+ wheel size the Beast features a fun trail geometry with a slack 88.5 degree head angle and short chainstays. The 27.5 plus wheels feature wide rims and high volume tyres which provide more grip and better cushioning. The ability to run lower tyre pressures combined with the large tyre diameter (similar to a 29er) means that the Beast can take on much more challenging terrain than a traditional hardtail.
AI and Save Stays
The lightweight alloy frame features an Asymmetric Integration (AI) drivetrain which allows for wide tyres (up to 3”) with short chainstays and a sensible Q Factor. This means that your stance isn’t too wide and handling is quick and responsive.
The rear triangle features Save Stays which provide a more compliant, comfortable ride without affecting pedaling efficiency.
120mm suspension fork
More suspension travel than you would expect on a hardtail reflects the bikes ability to ride hard over challenging terrain.
The Shimano SLX/Deore ‘one by’ 10 speed drivetrain offers slick shifting over a wide range of gears and the chain will stay in place even when pinning it through rock gardens.
The Beast of the East 3 is a fun MTB which will allow experienced hardtail riders to take on more challenging terrain as well as inspiring confidence in new riders.
