Cannondale Flash 3 hardtail mountain bike loves speed, thanks to a light frame, agile handling and a 27-gear drivetrain. Feel free to hit the trails and fly.

  • Lightweight Flash aluminum frame features a geometry that's designed to offer race-inspired, nimble handling; 1.5 in. headtube improves strength, stiffness and handling
  • Rear stays are shaped to help smooth out trail chatter and enhance rolling speed, acceleration and handling
  • BB30 bottom bracket shell design increases stiffness for improved power transfer
  • Cannodale Fatty DLR 80 suspension fork delivers 80mm of travel to smooth out trails and obstacles
  • Drivetrain features SRAM X7 shifters and rear derailleur as well as a Shimano Deore front derailleur to ensure quick, precise movement through the 27 gears
  • Hayes Ryde Comp hydraulic disc brakes make use of 160mm rotors to ensure your speed management is easy, smooth and powerful
  • Maddux DC3.0 rims are outfitted with Kenda Slant 6 tires for all-terrain handling and traction
  • Specs on the Cannondale Flash 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.
