BALLISTEC CARBON / SMARTFORMED ALLOY

Using fibers developed by the military for ballistic armoring, this high-strength carbon construction process yields a frame that's lighter than aluminum and pound-for-pound stronger than steel. The alloy versions use our ultra sophisticated SmartFormed aluminum construction for a frame that's light and strong.

DYAD RT2

The same two-shocks-in-one DYAD technology found on the other OverMountain bikes, but with shock stroke, air spring volumes and damping created specifically for the Jekyll.

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.

      Comments about cannondale JEKYLL MX:

      When I rode this bike I definately felt a lot more confident than I would feel on the smaller travel bikes that I typically ride. The only thing that I would like to be changed is the geometry because the steep head angle doesn't give as much high speed stability as one would expect on a long travel bike like the jekyll.

        Comments about cannondale JEKYLL MX:

        I've had this bike about 4 months now and just can't say enough good things about it! This is the first bike I've ever purchased that I didn't feel the need to immediately upgrade something. The MX version comes stock with everything I wanted and then some. I was a little worried about tuning the DYAD shock at first, but after reading the manual, it wasn't any more difficult than traditional ones (It also comes with a shock pump). Once dialed in, it truly is like having "two shocks in one" and definitely worth it. The adjustable geo, DYAD shock, and adjustable seat post make transitions between the UH and DH sections super smooth. I also really like that they beefed up the fork stanchions to the 36 this year. The bike just has that "feel", like it can handle about anything you throw at it. I'm 5'9" with a 31" inseam and purchased a medium frame. The fit is perfect for me.
