Cannondale Trigger 27.5 Full Suspension

5/5 (1 Reviews)

Product Description

Trigger 27.5 is intended to be a do-it-all type of mountain bike, with 140 or 85mm of travel that's adjustable via a handlebar mounted remote that controls the Fox Dyad rear shock. The 27.5" wheels, slacker head angle and slightly longer front center, along with the shorter stem, are all design changes intended to make it a more capable, less XC-only type of ride than previous versions. Three full carbon options will be available, including a tricked out stealth black version whose highlights include an XX1 drivetrain and ENVE wheels. There will also be two alloy versions available that come equipped with a Fox front fork instead of the Lefty Supermax featured on the higher end versions.

Bottom Line:   
I switched over to the Trigger 27.5 Team Edition after riding and racing 29ers for the past 5 years. The C'dale Trigger 27.5 is an awesome bike that can handle anything in its way. The Ballistec Carbon frame is very stiff with no flex even in the pivot areas, light weight and durable.The Dyad Shock is very tune able and coverts from 140mm to 90mm with the flick of a lever. This also changes the geometry so you can climb more efficiently. The Supermax Lefty One Sided Fork has 140mm of travel and is amazing. It is very stiff and adjustable on the fly.The Trigger rides and handles incredible in the tech and tight singletrack and can really open up on downhills.
