Love to ride?
Get into the Habit! Cannondale could have just called it the "sweet spot". Composed and capable enough to run with bigger-travel bikes, yet light and lively enough to put the hurt on the shaved-leg set, the Habit is mainly concerned with delivering the most important kind of MTB performance - pure, simple, idiot-grin fun! If you're looking for one bike to do it all, make it a Habit. The Habit 4 mainframe and rear are made of SmartFormed Alloy. The shock link comes in carbon and saves 1 grams over the former alloy version. The Zero Pivot rear is a special construction that needs no bearings, no bushings, nothing to add weight or cause play, just seat stays engineered to flex along a given path, providing a plush, progressive travel. It also reduce unsprung weight for better suspension response. The oversized axles in the swingarm and link lock into place with a unique expanding collet system, dramatically increasing the system stiffness. The 12 mm travel, 68 degree head angle, custom 5 mm fork offset, short chainstays and low-slung chassis offer the perfect blend of speed and capability to let you shred whatever on the mountain throws your way. Suitable for that wide 76 mm bars, shorty 6 mm stems, 18/16 mm brake rotors and wider rims put you in absolute control. The built in Lefty 2. fork comes with a combination of superior needle bearing technology and plain bearings. In contrast to the plain bearing only design of the competition, here a very low-friction guidance of the linear spring movement is achieved. That means that the fork does not have to overcome static friction during super-hard brakes, shocks and heavy steering effort. The wheel can hit the ground always free and guarantees maximum control. For 217 it comes with a new air spring assembly, called 2Spring. This internal update decreases the strut's activation force by 7 lbs and makes for longer service intervals. The Habit 27.5" 4 is equipped with the Shimano SLX drivetrain for smooth shifting performance with 2x11-speed. Proven hydraulic Shimano Deore disc brakes allow great braking power. A solid wheelset with WTB's Stp i23 rims and Schwalbe Performance tires provide a guarantee that acceleration forces of any direction transfer directly to the trail. A wide lowriser handlebar provides maximum performance. HABIT - Pure, simple, idiot-grin fun MTB performance!
