Cannondale Habit 6 29" Mountain Bike

Five bikes of 2018

Manufacturing their first bicycle frames back in 1983, Cannondale is a brand known for their road, touring and mountain bikes. It may come as a surprise to see a Cannondale mountain bike in our top five bikes of 2018 collection, but the launch of their new Habit range definitely warrants a closer look. One bike that bridges the gap between affordability and performance is the Habit 6, a 29" wheeled trail-ready machine. We've taken a closer look at this versatile bike.

Equipped with 130mm of travel and one of the cleanest frame designs to date, Cannondale’s latest Habit mountain bike range created a stir when it launched earlier this year. Available in a multitude of models catering to both men and women, this is a trail bike to be reckoned with.

Looking closely at rider profiles, Cannondale came to the realisation that both weight and height affect the handling to a degree that frame size and suspension pressures cannot perfect alone. As such, they developed a unique yoke for every size, ensuring that each variant has an optimal centre of gravity. In layman's terms, the new Habit offers a phenomenal ride, every time, for everyone.

But don’t just take our word for it - keen mountain bikers will already be aware of this bike’s capability from the 50to01 crew’s infamous Whistler edit. With carbon and alloy models available, and a range of build specs on offer, there’s a Habit to suit every riding style and budget.

The model pictured is in many ways one of the most interesting mountain bikes on today’s market. Boasting the same frame design and well-dialled geometry as it’s bigger brothers, the Habit 6 represents incredible value for money, with a ride quality and aesthetics comparable to bikes three times the price.

Pairing a Fox Float Performance shock with RockShox’s Recon RL fork, the Habit 6 will appease even the most seasoned riders, while the 10-speed drivetrain combines the reliability of Shimano’s Deore components with Raceface's globally recognised durability. Complete with Shimano MT200 hydraulic disc brakes, you’ll really struggle to find better performance under the £2000 mark.

Whether you’re from a downhill, BMX or cross country background, the Habit will play to your existing skills, while giving you the confidence to push harder than you previously deemed possible.

Thanks to a perfect blend of high-quality components, intuitive design and mid-travel, plush suspension, the Habit 6 makes an ideal option for fast-paced, smile-inducing rides through bike parks, local singletrack and alpine descents alike.
