Cannondale Trail 3 27.5 Womens Mountain Bike 2018
Thanks to its confidence-inspiring ride and wallet-friendly price point, the Cannondale Trail 3 27.5 Womens Mountain Bike provides a great entry point into the world of off-road cycling.
Featuring Cannondale's new SmartForm C2 alloy construction, the overall weight is kept to a minimum, whilst maintaining the high levels of durability and strength required from a mountain bike. The SAVE technology found at the rear of the frame effectively dampens any unwanted trail feedback for a smooth, compliant ride, while stiffness is increased thanks to the 148mm BOOST rear hub spacing. The geometry has also been revised, ensuring the rider is kept upright with full visibility of the trail ahead.
The SR Suntour XCM-HLO-DS fork offers 100mm of smooth coil sprung travel, helping to tame rough trails for a comfortable, confidence-inspiring ride. The fork also features a hydraulic lockout system, allowing the rider to turn the forks on and off, ideal for reducing unwanted pedal bob when riding on smoother surfaces.
The 27.5 DC 5.0 wheelset offers great performance, carrying speed through corners and rolling smoothly over uneven ground, to provide a fun and playful overall experience. Paired with WTB's 2.25 inch wide Ranger Comp tyres, the ride is further enhanced, offering unrivalled levels of comfort and grip across all terrains.
The gearing and hydraulic disc brakes provide the crisp, reliable performance expected from Shimano products. Featuring an 11-36 9-speed cassette, the gear range is kept broad enough to navigate up steep, technical climbs, and sprint across open singletrack with equal success. Being hydraulic units, the M315 disc brakes ensure sharp, modulated performance no matter the external conditions, for confident and safe riding all year round.
The bike is finished with a host of women's specific components to ensure equally high levels of comfort whether it be a short blast around the local park or an all-day off-road epic. The Cannondale C2 handlebars are relatively narrow at 680mm, ideal for maintaining a comfortable upright position, whilst the Cannondale Stage 3 saddle is tailored to fit women, reducing the chance of chafing or pressure points.
