Cannondale proudly showed off their gorgeous 2015 Trigger Carbon Team 27.5-inch “Overmountain” bike at Eurobike last week. The $8,340, 25-pound bike is made from C-dale’s Ballistec carbon and comes with their outstanding Lefty SuperMax fork and the FOX-built DYAD 2-in-1 shock. With the DYAD in “Elevate” mode the bike takes on an XC-ish personality with 85mm of rear travel and a 68 degree head tube angle. In the longer-travel “Flow” mode, rear travel jumps to 140 mm of travel, while the bottom bracket drops a half-inch, and the head tube slacks out a half-degree to 67.5.
The one-two punch of Left SuperMax up front and DYAD in back makes the Trigger Carbon Team look pretty promising.
Slathered with a premium parts pick, the Trigger Carbon Team sports Mavic SLR tubeless wheels, a SRAM XX1 drivetrain with a Cannondale HollowGram SL crankset, a RockShox Reverb Stealth dropper post, and Magura’s MT6 disk brakes.
