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.

Weaknesses:    Racing Ralph Tires

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.

Problem with Trigger FD mount...any suggestions?

My Trigger 29er's front derailleur mount has started to slip out of place every 3-4 rides. The small pin that goes into the tiny hole in the frame (to prevent the FD from rotating backward when tension is applied to the cable) keeps backing out. Anyone else have this experience? When this happen ... Read More »

Trigger 27.5 sizing

Medium or Large ? Can't find a place to test ride one. All my 29ers are large, but I believe a medium 29er will work too I had a medium 26er Stumpjumper that was too small... I never rode a 27.5" but I assume it is closer to a 26er than to a 29er I am 5'10" with 32" inseam, regular buildRead More »

Lefty failure ride one, Trigger carbon team 27.5

Lefty will looses travel, starts with 140mm at the top of the hill and ends up with 100 or less at the bottom. Lockout doesnt work either. For a bike that expensive it is very dissapointing. Apart from this, bike is awesome, mine weights 23.06 pounds. Habndles real good, climbs nicely and ... Read More »
