THE CANNONDALE TRAIL 5 BIKE
The Cannondale Trail is a mountain bike that is affordable and has very reliable mid-range components. The Cannondale Trail has 29” inch wheel on larger sizes and 27.5” inch wheels on small and extra small sizes to fit the frame of which ever bike is being ridden.
The Cannondale trail bike delivers maximally for either climbing or descending. In addition, It is an agile bike that performs well in woodland trails and other trails too.
Two lightweight frame options
The unisex model ABoth and women’s Cannondale Trail are available with two different types of aluminum alloy frame options. These models get the higher-spec C2 alloy frame. Not only do these frames have lighter weight, but they also have a tapered steerer tube and a boost hub spacing for effective steering precision. The Cannondale Trail also has an internal gear cable routing that has a cleaner look. All the models of this bike have a dirt-tailored geometry that allows for great handling.
Suspension fork to smooth the trail
The Cannondale trail has a 100mm travel suspension fork placed upfront that is very effective for absorbing the bumps on trails for a smooth ride. The model known as the Women’s Trail has a 120 mm travel fork that makes it more capable of riding on rough terrains.
Groupset (Powerful stopping with plenty of gears)
The bike models of the Cannondale Trail range offer a great spread of gears that allows for long descents and steep climbs. The major difference is in the way the gear works.
Every of the Cannondale Trail range has disc brakes that are meant for all-weather stopping power. A lot of them have hydraulics, which gives a more powerful speed control. The wide handlebars and short stems enable the bicycles to give the feeling of a confident ride.
The Cannondale trail 1 and 2 also have a fitted dropper seat post. This enables the rider to lower his saddle in order to gain more control when he rides on descents. When you push the handlebar on the remote, you will be able to pop the saddle back up, so as not to lose any pedaling efficiency when on the climbs.
Great for beginners or veteran riders
The Cannondale trail is great mountain bikes that are accessible and give super all-round performance both on the trail and also on the terrains such as canal paths and forest roads.
