Cannondale Trigger 1 27.5″ Mountain Bike 2018 – Trail Full Suspension MTB



There’s no trail you can’t conquer, on the Cannondale Trigger 1 27.2 full suspension mountain bike.

BallisTec is Cannondale’s proprietary high stiffness & strength carbon fibre construction. Using a mixture of high strength fibres (similar to those used in military ballistic armouring, hence the name), along with a high impact matrix which is designed to withstand repeat impacts, BallisTec carbon frames exhibits an impressive strength-to-weight ratio. Combined with the direction-specific layup of the individual sheets of carbon fibre, BallisTec carbon frames can be precisely fine-tuned for the perfect balance of stiffness & compliance.

The Creme-de-la-crème Cannondale Trigger 1 trail-riding MTB pulls out all the stops, and gets a full BallisTec Carbon front & rear triangle, with a carbon shock link to boot. Carbon everything, means unbelievable lightness, and a level of lateral rigidity & strength that other bikes can only dream of.

In case you missed it, that shiny golden goodness you see on the Trigger 1 is the Kashima coating on the Fox Float 34 Factory fork, and matching Fox Float X Factory EVOL rear shock. Together, they give you 150mm of buttery smooth front travel, and 115 – 145mm of pure silk at the rear. That adjustable travel is thanks to the Gemini dual-mode air spring system, which a bar-mounted remote switching between 11255 travel ‘Hustle’ mode, and the descent-ready 145mm ‘Flow’ mode on-the-fly.

A bike that displays such prowess in both climbs and descents needs a set of gears that can cope with anything. SRAM’s X01 Eagle 1×12 speed drivetrain answers the call, bestowing the Trigger 2 with a whopping 500% gear range, all from a single shifter. SRAM also take responsibility for keeping your speed in check on the Trigger 2, doing the honours with a set of their Guide RS hydraulic disc brakes and Centreline 180mm rotors. Powerful braking, sublime control.

Ride it. Love it. The Cannondale Trigger 1 full-sus is built to please.
