This Cannondale Trigger 3 2016 is available with our legendary Podium Point free accessory scheme.
Cannondale's Trigger 3 offers Shimano SLX/XT drivetrain components, Shimano SLX brakes, a Cannondale Si chainset and Trans X Dropper seatpost as upgrades over the Trigger 2.
Cannondale's Trigger is designed to be the perfect all round mountain bike. Put it in Flow mode and it can shred the gnarliest of descents, put it in Elevate mode and it can climb like a scared monkey. In Flow mode you get 140mm of travel and relaxed geometry, in Eleveate mode you get 85mm of travel and nimble geometry, a great descender or a great climber at the flick of a handlebar mounted switch. At the heart of the Trigger is the Fox DYAD RT2 rear shock which can not only change travel but also changes spring rate and damping setup in each travel mode. Trigger bikes use 27.5" wheels which are perfect for this style of long travel bike which needs the upmost manoeuvrability.
Cannondale's Trigger 3 uses a Smartformed alloy frame which uses the latest in alloy forming technology to create a lightweight and laterally stiff chassis which includes great features such as a BB30 bottom bracket, 1.5" headtube and ISCG03 chain guide mounts. Upfront, suspension is provided by a Fox 34 Float Performance fork with a custom 51mm offset which ensures the fork's handling is perfectly matched to the Trigger's geometry. Renowned for its smooth travel, the Float 34 fork uses the latest FIT4 damper for the most controlled travel Fox have ever offered.
The Trigger 3 uses Shimano SLX 2x10 shifters with a Shimano XT rear derailleur for smooth and accurate shifter and a great spread of gear ratios which are perfectly suited to this style of bike giving great climbing and descending gears. Cannondale provide the Si BB30 chainset which benefits from the additional stiffness and low weight found with the oversized axle design. Shimano SLX also provides the braking with lots of power and a great, lightweight, lever feel.
If you're looking for an all-mountain bike that excels uphill as well as down then Trigger 3 ticks the box.
