ECS-TC SYSTEM

Clamped, 15mm thru-axles in the shock linkage and swingarm pivot, as well as double bearings at the rear dropouts eliminate flex and provide unmatched center-stiffness for complete control.

DYAD RT2

The DYAD is really two different shocks in one: Elevate - a shorter travel shock tuned specifically for climbing and rolling terrain, and Flow - a linear, long travel shock tuned for aggressive descending.

ATTITUDE ADJUST GEOMETRY

Switching to the Elevate mode on the DYAD reduces the sag point, which raises the BB and makes the head angle steeper for a quick, efficient feel. Flowmode drops the BB for a low center of gravity and super stable feel.

              I have 4 bikes, from HT carbon to an 8" travel downhill. This is by far the best all-around bike in my quiver. I also ride this bike more than all the others combined. I can find nothing wrong with this bike.

                    This bike is amazing. I own three Cannondales at the moment, all of which have far exceeded my standards. This bike especially due to its quick and responsive handling, great frame, and amazing looks. Thanks Cannondale!!!

                      I got the 2012 Claymore 2 on closeout. Great long-travel bike. Taking lines I wasn't taking before. If your on the fence, get one. I am glad I did. Only thing I have changed so far is the grips for personal comfort. Other than that, the bike is very solid in the stock components department. I will add a HammerSchmidt later on. For now shreddin' as is. Adjustable rear shock is an added bonus, nice to switch to 110mm for climbs and XC oriented rides. Sweet bike that a lot of folks don't know about. Now you do!
