THE “QUIVER-KILLER” KILLER

If you love everything from XC to Enduro, you don’t need a quiver of bikes - you just need the two-in-one Trigger.

Rider Profile:

The adventurer who wants to see what’s around the next corner and over the next mountain pass and to do so, wants a bike that climbs as well as it descends.

  • TRAVEL
    85mm to 140mm on-the-fly adjustable rear travel. 140mm front
  • LIGHT, STIFF AND TOUGH
    The Trigger feels XC-light, but its stiffness and strength are pure all-mountain. The BallisTec Carbon models are full carbon (unlike our competitors, we don't use alloy swingarms or links to cut costs) while the performance of the SmartFormed alloy versions highlights Cannondale's aluminum expertise.
  • DYAD RT2
    The DYAD shock provides the same two-shocks-in-one benefits and performance of the Jekyll, but dialed for the Trigger: shorter travel (85mm) ELEVATE mode delivers near race-bike efficiency, while the longer travel FLOW (140mm) mode offers up a plusher, all-mountain feel.
  • ATTITUDE ADJUST
    Switching to the ELEVATE mode on the DYAD reduces the sag point, which raises the BB and makes the head angle steeper for a quick, efficient feel. FLOWmode drops the BB for a low, stable feel.
  • SUPERMAX
    The stiffness and steering precision of the Trigger's SuperMax fork blows away anything else in the 140mm categor y. The Trail tune damper offers a great balance between XC efficiency and all-mountian suppleness.
  • 27.5" WHEELS
    The “in-between” wheel size provides the ideal blend of snappy acceleration, nimble handling and roll-over momentum.
  • ZERO PIVOT
    The carbon Triggers utilize our flexing Zero Pivot seatstays, which save weight and actually increase lateral stiffness over bearing pivot rear stays.
  • ECS-TC SYSTEM
    Clamped, 15mm thru-axles in the shock linkage and swingarm pivot eliminate flex and provide unmatched center-stiffness for complete control.
