Cannondale Trigger 3 27.5″ Mountain Bike 2018 – Trail Full Suspension MTB



The Cannondale Trigger 3 full-suspension 27.5” mountain bike is designed for riders who refuse to compromise anything, whether climbing fire roads or blasting down singletracks.

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 Cannondale Trigger 3 full-sus trail-riding MTB uses a BallisTec front triangle, along with a SmartFormed C2 aluminium swingarm. The redesigned suspension linkage allows plenty of space inside the frame triangle for a water bottle, giving you the freedom to take the weight off your back as you hit the trails.

Equipped with Fox suspension front and rear, the Trigger 3 relies on a 150mm Float 34 Performance fork, while a Float Performance DPS rear shock takes care of the rear wheel. The rear shock features a Gemini remote-actuated dual mode air spring, which means you get to choose between two travel modes at the back wheel. ‘Flow’ mode gives you 145mm travel for fast & flowy descending, while ‘Hustle’ mode gives you 115mm travel to get a move on up the climbs.

The Trigger 3 comes with a 1×11 speed drivetrain, made up from a mixture of Shimano’s SLX and XT components. The result is an ultra-reliable gear shifting package, with plenty of range and excellent chain retention. Shimano’s SLX level also takes care of the braking, along with a pair of 180mm rotors that ensure you have plenty of power to get you down the mountain safely.

Hustle your way up. Flow down the other side. The Cannondale Trigger 3 mountain bike is a full-sus for all occasions.
