Unlike other so-called “quiver killers” the all-new Trigger doesn’t need to compromise between too much travel and too little, too steep geometry, or too slack. Its new and improved Fox DYAD rear shock gives the rider the perfect travel and geometry for whatever terrain they’re attacking.
One of the key functions of the DYAD rear shock is that it enables the rider to adapt the geometry of the bike on-the-fly for the best climbing or descending experience. We call this Attitude Adjust. In Elevate Mode, the geometry is steeper for a more efficient pedaling position and better front-end control on steep climbs. In Flow Mode, the geometry gets lower and slacker to attack aggressive descents.
The Bigger, Badder Lefty
Everything that makes our tried-and-true Lefty great is what makes SuperMax the best performing fork in its category. It’s lighter, stiffer, stronger, smoother and less maintenance than the competition. You simply can’t beat that.
BallisTec is Cannondale's high-strength, high-stiffness carbon construction. It starts with a base structure composed of ultra-strong fibers originally created by the military for ballistic armoring, and high-strength, high-impact resins similar to what is used in the construction of carbon baseball bats. Ride-feel tuning and stiffness comes from precision addition of high and ultra-high modulus fibers and the result is some of lightest, stiffest and toughest frames out there.
The World’s Only True 2-in-1 Shock
DYAD’s unique dual-shock technology lets you transform your bike on the fly from long travel to short travel and back again, depending on your mood and whatever the trail is throwing your way. Where other bikes are forced to use one middle-of-the-road travel and geometry for both climbing and descending, DYAD doesn’t compromise. With its dual modes, Elevate and Flow, it delivers the right shock response and the right geometry at the right moment.
The more laterally stiff a frame is, the better it responds to rider input. A stiffer bike pedals more efficiently and corners more precisely. On many bikes links, bearings and axles flex and rotate relative to each other, and these small factors all combine to negatively influence lateral stiffness. We solved this with our patented ECS-TC™ system.
