For city slickers or mountain pros, when the time comes to hit the rocky trails, it's the Cannondale Trigger that you'll want with you. Made for the mountains, for steep climbs and tricky descents, the Trigger features dual-mode full suspension and dual-travel Gemini shocks for greater control and improved comfort. It'll be a ride to remember.
Beyond the Float X and DPS shocks, meet Gemini. A shock-absorber system with a dual personality; "hustle mode" keeps you high in the saddle with reduced suspension for the climbs to maximize your pedal efficiency, while "flow mode" is low-slung with full suspension travel to let you soar on the downhill.
Asymmetric Integration (AI) is a Cannondale system that improves traction, bike agility and rear-wheel strength, all by asymmetrically positioning the rear hub and drivetrain. Its short chainstays but large wheel clearance allow for supreme control, less pedaling and a better, cleaner ride.
Climb with ease, corner with confidence and love the rush of the downhill. The Trigger lets you enjoy peak efficiency and maximum control while tackling anything the mountain throws your way: 66° head tube angle, Designed for short stems and wide bars for optimal control, Long front-center, Shortest chainstays around (420mm) thanks to Ai offset drivetrain, Steep seat angle for efficient pedaling.
Placing a link between the swingarm and the shock enables optimal suspension response throughout the stroke, keeps the suspension active while braking and retains the stiffness, durability and reliability of a single pivot design.
With BallisTec Carbon construction, the stout Ai-offset rear end and LockR pivots holding everything tightly together, the Trigger has incredible chassis stiffness for precise control and explosive acceleration.
