Cannondale Suspension Forks | Lefty for Gravel, XC, Mountain and More

SUSPENSION OF DISBELIEF Lefty Suspension

Since suspension forks first hit the market, we’ve looked at their design, and known we could do things better — we just had to go a little left field. So we put on our engineering hats, hit the trail over and over again, and created the smoothest fork on the market — the Lefty.

For 20 years we’ve been tweaking Lefty’s buttery smooth travel and perfecting its performance for mountain, gravel, and ebikes. Lefty delivers a fine-tuned balance of stiffness when you need it, frictionless travel when you want it, all in a lightweight package.

What does this mean for you? More control, more confidence, and more speed than any other fork.

Which Lefty is right for you?

“That seems to defy logic when you look down at the front wheel as you ride. It’s hard to believe the wheel has enough support from just a single contact point, but the fact is it works. And not just well… brilliantly.”

                                                                                                                                                                          Like butter. Rather than sliding on friction-causing bushings, Lefty uses a trio of needle bearing cages that roll smoothly within two triangular tubes to eliminate friction and prevent any rotation internally. This results in a fork that moves freely, with incredible small bump compliance, and glued-to-the-trail traction that’s critical in technical terrain.

With just one leg it’s no surprise that Lefty weighs in as one of the lightest suspension forks money can buy. Not only does this shed grams, but by focusing material in a single leg we are able to achieve gold-standard strength-to-weight ratios. A perfect match for roasting XC climbs and smoothing out serious gravel adventures.

We take the guesswork out of your riding by crafting Lefty with strategically engineered stiffness for the most balanced performance wherever you roll. Stiffness is focused across three planes to walk the fine line between comfort and precision. Brake late. Take the fastest lines. Free your ride.
