With beautifully crafted frames, progressive geometry and seriously dirt-ready components, the all-new Cannondale Trail is built to take your riding to the next level, from your first time off-road to your next big adventure.
Light and lively, stiff, and snappy. The new SmartForm C3 Alloy frameset showcases Cannondale's decades of expertise in aluminium craftsmanship with standardised 1-1/8' headtube, standard QR spacing and post disc brake mount - no proprietary tech making for easy upgrades later should you need to.
Dirt-Tailored Geometry brings both quickness and composure, thanks to shorter chainstays which allow for greater agility and traction, a slack head angle for unwavering stability plus wide bars and a short stem for total control.
The new Cannondale Trail 8 remains sweetly priced, but make no mistake - wide-range gearing, powerful disc brakes and durable wheels and tyres contribute to big trail readiness.
