The perfect blend of cross-country speed and all-mountain capability: Pull the Trigger.

The speedy little brother of the OverMountain clan, the cross-mountain Trigger blurs the line between XC speed and all-mountain capability. Shorter travel with a more XC/Trail oriented geometry, Trigger brings the best of OverMountain technology to fast trail riders everywhere.

Trigger 26 is:

  • OverMountain technology in a fast trail bike package.
  • BallisTec Carbon construction and the Lefty fork make for an unmatchably light and stiff bike.
  • ECS-TC thru-axles eliminate flex for solid, predictable responsiveness.
  • Rider profile:

    Trigger is designed for fast, fluid cross-mountain riders whose riding style and terrain require less travel and aggressiveness than the Jekyll.

    Technologies

  • TRAVEL
    120mm to 70mm on-the-fly adjustable rear travel.
  • DYAD RT2
    A smaller DYAD shock provides the same two-shocks-in-one benefits and performance of the Jekyll, but dialed for the Trigger: shorter travel Elevate mode delivers near race-bike efficiency, while the longer travel Flow mode offers up a plusher, all-mountain feel.
  • GEOMETRY
    Trigger is more than just a Jekyll with less travel. Its lower stance and slightly steeper head angle results in a more nimble feel especially at slower speeds. The perfect balance of quick and stable.
  • ATTITUDE ADJUST
    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, stable feel.
  • ECS-TC SYSTEM
    Clamped, 15mm thru-axles in the shock linkage and swingarm pivot eliminate flex and provide unmatched center-stiffness for complete control.

      Comments about cannondale TRIGGER CARBON 1:

      After months of riding the Trigger Carbon 1 it has consistently proven to truly be a great all-around, high performance mountain bike. It's a speedy trail performer with all-mountain sensibilities that can handle most any type of trail. It's also an impressive long distance race bike thanks to quick, precise handling and snappy acceleration. The dual-travel DYAD shock combines the best of xc-style acceleration in Elevate mode with all-mountain plush in Flow mode. A truly fun bike to ride or race anywhere and everywhere.
