With its wider tyres, bigger brakes and a longer fork, the Cannondale Habit Carbon SE 650b mountain bike takes the impressive Habit MTB platform and injects it with a little more aggression and downhill capability.
For the ultimate stiffness and strength, Cannondale’s BallisTec carbon fibre technology is right up there with the best in the world. The Habit Carbon SE uses BallisTec carbon, along with SmartForm C1 alloy in the swingarm, to give the bike incredible agility and versatility. It’s light enough to take on the cross-country MTB trails, yet tough enough to handle all-mountain & enduro punishment all day long.
Not only does the Habit Carbon SE do it all, it does it all well. Cannondale built the bike for pure, simple, trail-ripping fun, which is why the frame geometry puts the rider in a balanced & stable position, with a short stem to keep the steering response high. The longer fork slackens the head angle slightly, adding even more stability to the bike.
Using a RockShox Pike RC fork with boost axle spacing and 130mm travel, the Habit SE descends with great prowess, backed up by 120mm travel at the rear from the Fox Float DPS shock absorber. Silky smooth suspension helps the Habit Carbon SE grip the trail around every bend, as do the wider 2.35” tyres.
SRAM’s X1 1×11 speed gears have a wide range of ratio to choose from, changing gear rapidly for every hill, flat and descent. Descending on the Habit Carbon SE is a real joy, thanks to the SRAM Guide R disc brakes, with 180mm rotors front and rear. The bigger rear rotor gives you a little more power at the back wheel so you can tackle difficult descents more aggressively.
