Cannondale high-performance at an affordable price.

Their incredible performance and value make the light, smooth Trail bikes the perfect entry point into the world of mountain biking.

Trail is:

  • Light and strong thanks to Cannondale’s advanced alloy construction
  • A comfortable high-performance ride due to SAVE technologies and size-specific suspension.
  • Designed for women, by women. ‘Nuff said.

rider profile:

For experienced riders looking for an affordable upgrade, or new riders looking for a performance head start.


  • All-New Trail
    For 2014, the Trail gets a new lighter weight frame. In addition to a more refined look and features derived from the F-Series, it features a 27.2mm seat post for lighter weight and better trail vibration damping.
  • Women’s-Specific Geometry
    Designed for a women’s proportions, the Trail comes in smaller sizes, with shorter top tubes and size specific headtube lengths.
  • SAVE micro-suspension stays
    Optimized seat stay and chain stay shaping provides vertical compliance for a more comfortable ride with no loss in lateral rigidity.
  • Custom forks
    Because ride feel and suspension is key to enjoyment, we’ve engineered size-specific springs so that the forks on each individual size are better suited to each rider and have a consistent response throughout the range.
    Trademark double-pass smooth welds showcase Cannondale’s aluminum frame mastery. Since we don’t patch fill with putty and paint, our process eliminates the stress-risers and weak points found on traditionally welded frames, enabling us to build lighter, stronger frames everywhere in the line.

        Comments about Trail Women's 5:

        This bike couldn't be better for the intermediate female rider who wants to advance her skills before moving up to full-suspension. The Petite size is great for smaller ladies like me, 5'1". I have yet to have any mechanical issues (except for bending the derailleur when falling off a bridge, but that's my own fault). I did upgrade the seat, grips and tires, though, because they were all low-end items that lacked a little in performance. However, the important components on the bike are all great. I highly recommend this bike.
