Make your favorite trails even more fun with the Cannondale Habit 3. This trail bike has its priorities on point, boasting a progressive design that delivers playful agility and serious capability.

  • Features

    • SmartForm C1 alloy frame delivers lightweight, responsive handling and 130 mm of plush suspension controlled by a RockShox Deluxe Select+ shock
    • Rockshox Pike Select fork delivers 140 mm of hit- and bump-absorbing travel
    • Designed to be your daily ride, the Habit is built for easy service with durable suspension pivots, easy internal cable routing and no oddball proprietary stuff
    • SRAM NX Eagle 1 x 12-speed drivetrain offers reliable shifting across the 11–50-tooth cassette, offering a wide range of gears to take on any terrain
    • SRAM G2 R hydraulic discs provide reliable all-condition stopping power
    • Internally routed Cannondale DownLow dropper post gets your seat low and out of the way for descents, and then quickly back up for climbs
    • 29 in. wheels with big, grippy tires offer a plush ride with plenty of traction
    • Progressive geometry, a properly wide handlebar and a short stem support an effective riding position, helping you get the most out of every trail
    • Proportional Response design tailors the actual suspension layout by size so that every rider gets optimal traction, suppleness and control
    • Using size-specific center-of-gravity data, the suspension is designed and optimized for each frame size
    • Ai Offset Drivetrain opens up the rear triangle for more tire clearance, while keeping the chainstays short for nimble agility; a stiffer, stronger rear wheel is just icing
    • Downtube protector shields your shock and frame from roost and strikes, lets cool air in and keeps out water and crud
    • Pedals not included; specs and images are subject to change

Included: derailleur and brake adjustments, lateral wheel truing, hub and headset bearing adjustments, tire inflation and chain lubrication. Not included: replacement or installation of new components or accessories, any other services. Call your local REI Co-op Bike Shop for more information.
