Cannondale's Trigger 4 is ready for any trail, any time! Cannondale built their reputation on aluminum frames, and their revolutionary SmartFormed tech expands on that with a low weight and unmatched ride quality. Up front, a 140mm Fox 32 Evolution fork leads the way, and out back a Fox DYAD shock boasts 140mm of rider-tunable, big-hit-swallowing suspension that can be adjusted, by a bar-mounted lever, to 85mm when it's time to ascend. When you're looking for a drivetrain to get you up, down, and everywhere in between, Shimano's SLX components deliver with light, fast shifting, an all-mountain capable triple-chainring setup. If things start to get a little too zesty you can always rely on Shimano's SLX hydraulic discs to get things back under control. The whole rig rolls on sturdy, tubeless-ready WTB rims with Formula hubs. Topped off with a killer selection of Cannondale's own parts and a sleek, supportive WTB saddle, this trail-tamer is ready for any trail, any time.
Forget 29er's! This is the downhill machine to have.

About Me Advanced
I really went around in circles for a month trying to find the right bike. I test drove a few different 29'ers and liked the overall speed of them but when the trail gets tricky, the bike was frozen like a deer in headlights... good thing those big tires can go over, bc it has a tough time going around. The front rake on a 140mm travel bike with a 29er on it is like maneuvering a submarine... that's not downhill racing!
The 650B Cannondale Trigger was quick, nibble, hops over anything it can't maneuver around and good looking. I got so stoked on the price drop and had to pull the trigger ;)
Great bike, no regrets, but I am adding a seat dropper (reverb). Makes life so much easier.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
