This Cannondale Trigger Carbon 2 2016 is available with our legendary Podium Point free accessory scheme.
Cannondale's Trigger 2 offers a Ballistec Hi Mod Carbon frameset, SuperMax Lefty fork, Shimano XT 11 Speed drivetrain, Shimano XT Brakes, KS Lev Dropper seatpost, C1 Carbon riser bars and Cannondale Hollowgram Si chainset as upgrades over the Trigger 3.
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 2 uses a high modulus carbon fibre frameset and swingarm to maximise stiffness and minimise weight which not only maximises climbing potential but gives more accurate handling and a stiffer platform for the DYAD rear shock to work from. Upfront, suspension is provided by the awesome Cannondale Lefty SuperMax 2.0 fork which is not only one of the lightest forks in the category but is also one of the torsionally stiffest. To the uninitiated, the single legged Lefty looks like it should flex too much but a dual clamp design, huge stanchions, integrated hub axle and flat bearing surfaces mean it's stiffer than a dual leg design giving much better handling whilst the weight remains at a minimum.
The Trigger 2 uses Shimano's awesome new 11speed XT groupset. Running off Cannondale's stunning Hollowgram Si chainset the 2x11 gear system offers a huge range of gears and the super accurate gear shifting you'd expect from XT. Brakes a Shimano XT too, giving loads of stopping power with a beautiful, light, lever feel.
If you're looking for an awesome all-mountain bike that excels uphill as well as down then Trigger 2 is difficult to beat. Fully loaded with some stunning components it's one of the best there is.
