Trail proven, race ready.

Cannondale’s race pedigree is evident in the Rush 29’s light weight and plush-yet-efficient single pivot suspension. Weekend racers and adventurers alike will love its playful geometry and big wheels, which provide grippy climbing traction and confidence-inspiring descending.

RUSH 29 is:

  • Efficient pedaling and playful handling.
  • Balanced front and rear suspension.
  • More confidence boosting than plastic surgery at a fraction of the price.

rider profile:

Cross country riders who want a race-ready bike that’s super capable across a wide range of terrain.

Technologies

  • STAGED TRAVEL
    A custom tuned shock paired to a precisely engineered swing link delivers 100mm of perfectly staged travel that is supple at the start, linear though the middle for efficient pedaling and firm at the end to prevent bottoming.
  • 29er XC GEOMETRY
    We took the racy geometry of the Scalpel and tweaked it for riders who want agile and playful handling, but also want extra stability when things get rugged.
  • OPTIMIZED ALLOY
    A remarkable blend of refined tube shapes, controlled wall-thicknesses, double-pass welding and heat treating, creates frames that show why Cannondale is considered the “Aluminum Master”.
  • Double Pass Welds
    We make a true double-pass welds rather than the putty and paint filled “smooth welds” of our competition. This eliminates stress-risers and weak points found on traditionally welded frames, enabling us to build lighter, stronger frames.
