The Cannondale Bicycles Demo truck will be set up at the Draper Cycle Park this Saturday Aug, 8th from 9 AM to 2 PM. This is your chance to ride all the 2016 Models including the Jekyll, Trigger, Habit, Slate, EVO, and Synapse. No reservation required, just bring your ID, Helmet, and Pedals (they will have flat pedals and SPD’s available).
Cannondale pulled out all the stops for 2016, showing us two new models to their line up: the 27.5-wheel all-mountain trail bike called the Habit, and the gravel 650b road bike with a lefty suspension fork – the Slate (pictured). Yeah, you read that right. 650b road bike with a 30mm travel lefty fork. The 650b wheels make it quick and versatile, and the lefty fork lets you take this bike anywhere. The Slate is just as comfortable on the roads as it is on the cross course, making this the ultimate adventure bike. There is no better place to test the versatility of the Slate than at the Draper Cycle Park, if you haven’t been, you’re going to have a blast – especially on the Slate.
The Habit 120mm travel, 27.5 wheel bike designed as a versatile trail bike. The Habit doesn’t have the handlebar actuated travel adjust like the Jekyll and Trigger, and it uses a simpler single pivot suspension design with a swing link actuated shock. As the reviews roll in, the consensus seems to be that Cannondale did it right with this guy. Shop owner, Zach, had the chance to ride it and his two sentence review was impressive, “When I rode it the first thing I noticed was how fast it was. Seriously race bike fast but then I was shocked at how much fun it was descending. This is the perfect northern Utah bike.”
