Singletrack delight awaits with the Cannondale Trail SL 3 hardtail mountain bike, which boasts a fast, agile ride and a plush, responsive 100mm fork so you can easily find your flow, and go.

  • 6061 aluminum frame has double-butted tubes along with shaped chainstays and seatstays to improve efficiency and comfort; oversized headtube and headset improve strength
  • RST Deuce Coil suspension fork features 100mm of travel with both lockout and rebound adjustment for a smooth ride
  • Shimano drivetrain offers 27 fast, precise-shifting gears to ensure easy climbing and fun trail-blazing
  • Tektro Draco Pro hydraulic disc brakes ensure you have the stopping power and speed management you need, no matter the conditions
  • Schwalbe Rapid Rob tires provide grippy, fast-rolling performance for fun on the trail
  • Specs on the Cannondale Trail SL 3 hardtail mountain bike are subject to change

After its initial break-in period you might notice your bicycle performing less responsively than the day you brought it home. Not to worry, this is typical of all new bicycles and simply reflects that cables have stretched or their housings have seated themselves into final position. To keep running at peak performance, all REI bicycles come with a FREE warranty tune-up, which should be accomplished between the first 100-200 miles of riding or after the first two months if you're accumulating miles less quickly. Contact your nearest REI bike shop for details and an appointment for this important service.
