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.

About the author: Don Palermini

Chicago-born Don Palermini became a cycling-based life-form in the sixth grade after completing a family road bike tour of his home state. Three years later he bought his first mountain bike to help mitigate the city's pothole-strewn streets, and began exploring the region's unpaved roads and trails. Those rides sparked a much larger journey which includes all manner of bike racing, commuting, on- and off-road bike advocacy, and a 20-plus-year marketing career in the cycling industry that landed him at his current gig with Santa Cruz bicycles. Now residing in the San Francisco Bay Area, his four favorite words in the English language are "breakfast served all day," together in that order.
