Product details

The Cannondale Habit Carbon 2 Mountain Bike climbs as well as it descends as a result of its carbon frame and modern geometry. The Habit is a very playful, nimble bike that adds to the solid Cannondale lineup and is a great bike for the intermediate to advanced rider.

Key Features:

  • Proportional Response – All Habit frames utilize the size-specific center of gravity data, meaning each frame suspension is custom-tubed to the size.
  • More Tire Clearance – The AI offset opens up the rear triangle, which allows for more clearance while keeping the chainstay short and the rear tire stiff/strong.
  • Solid Components – SRAM GX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain, RockShox Select Deluxe fork, and SRAM hydro disc brakes contribute to an overall capable and fun bike.

I recommend this bike if you're willing to pay a bit extra for a lighter and more efficient ride. When the main terrain you'll be riding includes a good balance of up and down with rocky and root filled trails, this bike will be a winner.

This is a killer bike! Super-light carbon put together with the Shimano XT/SLX drivetrain and the much higher-end Rockshox Pike fork and 4-piston brakes make this a bike that can handle anything you want to ride!

Carbon trail bike with the Pike fork, considered the best fork for pure trail riding. Really nice Shimano components, great tires, and the modern trail geometry.
