Re-designed and re-developed the Cannondale Trail 8 brings a level of performance and handling usually found in far more expensive models. A tweaked geometry, refined specification and SmartForm C3 alloy construction make a difference that you can feel from the first pedal stroke.
A longer top tube allows Cannondale to use a shorter stem, combined with wider bars you will feel far more confident when riding at speed. A slack 68-degree head angle creates stable and confident handling so you can truly rule every descent.
Killer spec throughout, all the way through the trail range reliable 2x drivetrains are used, ultra-grippy WTB tyres and easy to maintain mechanical disc brakes, the new Trail is ready to rock.
