TRAIL SL 3

The affordable superbikes.

1.5" HEAD TUBE

The oversized 1.5" head tube increases front end stiffness for better steering and control.

ALL NEW FRAME

Completely redesigned for 2013, the Trail SL frames have a new lighter-weight frameset modeled after our high-end Flash frames, new lighter dropouts and more exaggerated SAVE features. Lighter, Stiffer and Smoother.

SMOOTH WELDS

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.
