2018 Cannondale Trigger is there, even though it's April 2017... It is the full suspension trail mountain bike, so it's gonna be fun to ride on pretty much any terrain. Let's see, what's changed comparing to the previous Trigger.

New Cannondale Trigger:


  1. no Lefty, 150 mm of travel Fox forks,
  2. 145 mm of rear travel,
  3. Fox Gemini rear shock, can be replaced by any other fitting shock,
  4. on-the-fly adjustable travel (pressing the remote changes the air volume and reduces travel by 20%),
  5. descending and riding mode (Flow Mode for downhill, Hustle Mode for more versatile riding)
  6. Asymmetric Integration (Ai) + boost 148 mm rear hub,
  7. geometry (Large size): head tube angle 66°, wheelbase 119 mm, chain stay length 42 cm

Old Cannondale Trigger:


  1. Lefty Supermax, 140 mm of travel,
  2. 140/85 mm of rear travel,
  3. Fox Dyad rear shock, can not be swapped out by other designs,
  4. on-the-fly adjustable travel AND geometry system,
  5. descending and climbing mode (Flow Mode and ELEVATE Mode),
  6. "old fashion", symmetric rear end with a standard hub,
  7. geometry (Large size): head tube angle 68°, wheelbase 117,9 cm, chain stay length 43,8 cm

The new Cannondale Trigger is on the way to my studio, so expect to see it in action on my YouTube channel soon... Since it's just been launched, you may also expect some nice discount on the previous Trigger in your store :)


2018 Cannondale Trigger got a completely redesigned frame.


2017 Cannondale Trigger had less aggressive geometry you could change with a remote.


There is a space for you bottle on new Trigger...


New lockr thru-axle pivot system


The previous model has Fox DYAD rear schock.


The new rear shock is more simple and makes the frame compatible with other shocks too.
