Cannondale Trail 1 27.5 Womens Mountain Bike 2018
The Cannondale Trail 1 27.5 Womens Mountain Bike combines a host of fantastic, rugged components with the new, updated SmartForm C2 alloy frame to provide a fun, tough bike ready to tackle whatever you throw at it.
Weight is kept to a minimum thanks to Cannondale's highly regarded SmartForm C2 alloy construction, which simultaneously increases stiffness in the important areas. Geometry wise, the Trail 1 places the rider in an upright position, with a full view of the trail ahead. The frameset is also future-proof thanks to its Boost rear spacing, tapered headtube, and flat mount brakes, making it a great foundation should you wish to upgrade any parts further down the line.
The bike features a single-ring Shimano drivetrain, shaving valuable weight by removing the front mech, shifter and chainrings. This 1X setup also greatly reduces the likelihood of dropping a chain, for more enjoyable, uninterrupted riding. Compensating for the lack of front chainrings is the huge 11-42t SunRace 10-speed cassette. Paired with a 30t chainring, the rider is provided with a vast range of gearing, equally as suited to sharp, steep climbs as it is fast, open singletrack.
Stopping power is taken care of by the Shimano hydraulic brakes, offering high levels of control and modulation, offering a confidence inspiring ride no matter the technicality of the trail ahead.
Pairing perfectly with the responsive brake choice are the WTB wheels and tyres. No matter how good a brake is, ultimately, you will only decelerate effectively if your tyres can maintain adequate traction. The WTB Ranger Comp tyres have an aggressive tread pattern, ideal for tougher trails, whilst their 2.25 inch width provides great grip levels as well as increased comfort. The WTB STX wheels utilise a wide rim profile, allowing the tyre to sit correctly, for lower rolling resistance and improved overall handling.
In summary, the Trail 1 offers fantastic value for money, with its high quality, up-to-date specification and design it is ready to rip straight out the box.
