Bike Discounts UK - Cannondale Habit Carbon SE 2017 Full Suspension Mountain Bike Purple
Bigger tyres, longer fork, and even more descending mojo. Cannondale’s Habit SE 2017 takes the great Habit platform and evolves it into a trail beast that is ready to shred straight from the box. Sitting in the sweet spot of trail bikes, the Habit isn’t a slouch on the climbs yet rips down the descents with abandon. Pure and simple, the Habit lives for trail ripping fun. Dialled in trail geometry gives the Habit SE 2017 a slack 67.5 head angle combined with short chainstays to provide an agile feel on the trail. Wide bars and a short stem help to boost the agile feel with their high leverage ratio yet control is kept in check with large disc rotors combined with the wide, trail gripping rims and tyres. Cannondale wouldn’t be able to call the Habit SE a true trail shredder without a 1x drivetrain, courteous of Sram’s X1 group and Cannondale’s own Si Crankset. The result is a simple, low maintenance drivetrain that shifts in an instant with the wide range needed, without adding the excess weight of a front mech and 2nd chainring. BallisTec Carbon Frame Featured in the front triangle of the Habit SE 2017 frame, BallisTec is Cannondale’s proprietary method of creating high strength, high stiffness carbon, blend the most advanced materials in the world with cutting edge engineering and design. Zero Pivot Seat Stays Using advanced manufacturing techniques, Cannondale have created a rear triangle that foregoes the pivot at the rear axle. This enhances suspension performance, shaves weight, and increases stiffness, all with the advantage of less bearings to maintain.
