Big, bouncy and utterly bonkers. The Cannondale Fat CAAD 2 mountain bike is the bicycle equivalent of a monster truck, with the soul of a racer.
It may be fat, but it sure can dance! Cannondale are among the world leaders in aluminium wizardry, and the fat CAAD takes full advantage of that. The SmartFormed C1 alloy keeps the bike light, while the SAVE micro-suspension technology gives it just a little bit of controlled vertical flex in the rear triangle, taking the sting out of any rough terrain.
Cannondale’s own SI crankset uses custom chainring offsets to make sure the extra width of the Fat CAAD doesn’t leave it with an uncomfortable Q-factor. The frame & fork are also designed with a long front centre and a short trail, giving the bike outstanding high speed stability, with fast-response steering for low-speed agility.
Those enormous tyres are 26×4.8 inch wide Schwalbe Jumbo Jim’s, with snakeskin puncture protection. They’re just at home floating along on top of the snow as they are kicking up the dirt and ironing out the braking ruts on your favourite mountain bike trail.
The Fat CAAD 2 is outfitted with a Fatty-Fat Rigid fork, and a crazy-wide 150x15mm thru axle. Gearing comes courtesy of SRAM’s popular 2×10 X5/X7 combo, delivery rapid response and a reliable package that will power you up the mountain climbs and blast you down the other side. Massive tyres mean massive grip, and the SRAM Guide hydraulic disc brakes have plenty of power, making sure you can use all the available grip when you want it.
