Cannondale Trail SL 3
Packed with features and technology from its upper end siblings, the Trail is the bike that will usher you forever into the world of fat tires, off road trails and big smiles. Let the good times begin.
• Shimano Hydraulic disc brakes
• Optimised 6061 alloy frame with SAVE technology
• Shimano Deore/Alivio groupset
• RST Deuce Coil fork with 100m travel, external lockout and rebound adjustment
The Trail bikes have racing in their blood. They share the geometry and many of the features of their Flash brethren for a ride that is fast, snappy and agile. The Trail SL’s all use 1.5” steerers for increased strength and stiffness.
Cannondale Aluminium Crafting
The Trail’s purposefully shaped tubes, internal taper-butting and trademark double-pass smooth welds highlight Cannondale’s aluminium expertise.
SAVE Comfort Enhancing Rear Stays.
The chain stays and seat stays are designed to work together to absorb shock, while preventing side-to-side and twisting flex. This adds up to better comfort and great power transfer.
