Bred for big days on big mountains, the Cannondale Trigger 3 27.5 bike features a dual-mode, dual-travel shock and Ai-driven, all-mountain attack geometry for going all in to go all out.

  • Features

    • Co-developed with Fox, the Gemini system has 2 modes, adding a whole new level of all-mountain capability to the performance of the Float X and DPS shocks
    • Hustle mode shortens the travel and keeps you higher in the stroke for improved efficiency and snappy response on climbs and rolling terrain
    • Flow mode drops your ride height and unleashes full Fox travel when its time to cook
    • Asymmetric Integration (Ai) creates short, 420mm stays for climb-crushing traction and agility, while preserving tire clearance and frame stiffness
    • Ai even-dish build ensures a stiff, strong rear wheel
    • Short stays, steep seat angle, long front center and slack head angle let you climb like a goat, change direction like a hummingbird and charge through downs like a grizzly
    • Leveraged single-pivot design places a link between the swingarm and shock for optimal suspension response; it keeps the suspension active when braking
    • Pedals sold separately; specs and images are subject to change
