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 Carbon 2 frame comes with a full BallisTec Carbon main frame with carbon link and SmartFormed Alloy rear. The cool carbon shock link saves 1 grams over the former alloy version. Lighter and stiffer than aluminum, more shock proof than steel, Ballistec Carbon can shake off rock strikes and impacts that would destroy Habit's flimsy competition. 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. XLR 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 fork's activation force by 7 lbs and makes for longer service intervals. Like the RockShox Monarch XX shock the fork got a hydraulic remote lockout. Both can be controlled with one lever via RockShox XLoc FullSprint. The Habit 27.5" Carbon 3 is equipped with the Shimano SLX drivetrain with XT rear derailleur for smooth shifting performance in 11 gears. Proven Shimano Deore hydraulic disc brakes allow great braking power. A wide wheelset with WTB STP i23 TCS rims and Schwalbe tires provide a guarantee that acceleration forces of any direction transfer directly to the trail. A wide lowriser handlebar provides maximum performance. Also contributing to the enormous versatility is the TransX dropper post with internal routing. It saves the seat adjustment before and after downhill sections. HABIT - Pure, simple, idiot-grin fun MTB performance!
