2015 Cannondale Trigger And Jekyll

It’s a ballsy move by Cannondale, they have introduced the “lefty” to their OverMountain duo for 2015, the Jekyll and the Trigger. (Yes, 2015, it’s not a typo, Cannondale are referring to these as 2015 models!!)

In previous guises these bikes ran with traditional single crown dual leg forks from traditional partners Rock Shox or Fox Racing Shocks and have been targeted as all-mountain/trail bikes, or as Cannondale would have you believe OverMountain. Clearly Cannondale remain committed to this category, even if everyone else is gathering on the other side of the room muttering that they must be nutters. Despite the desire to invent a category no-one else cares about, Cannondale are clearly on to something, as Jerome Clementz has proven the Jekyll is suited to enduro through his dominate role in the 2013 Enduro World Series.

2015 Cannondale Jekyll:
For the new model year the Jekyll has a new geometry, 27.5” wheels, SuperMax “lefty” fork with 160mm and the latest Fox Racing Shox DYAD rear shock. The DYAD is exclusive to Cannondale.

2015 Cannondale Trigger 29:
With it’s 29” wheels the Trigger is focused more on climbing then descent. In fact Cannondale compare it’s ability to roll over objects along the trail with the abilities of a monster truck… bold I say, bold!

The Trigger 29  includes the SuperMax “left” and the update DYAD rear shock.

SuperMax Fork:
Dual Integrated crowns – Stiffer and stronger than single crown setups
Inverted Design – Inverted design is not just stiffer and stronger, it’s also better lubricated. Gravity holds lube against the seals and bearings for longer life and smoother action
Massively Oversized – the SuperMax’s lower leg is 36mm in diameter, while the upper leg measures a whopping 46mm for maximum stiffness and steering precision
Hybrid needle Bearing system – For maximum control, SuperMax’s proprietary needle bearing assembly keeps the suspension smooth, no matter how hard you brake, corner, or land
Wheel size specific Offset – SuperMax uses wheel size specific axle offsets up to 10mm longer than the competition, creating the perfect balance of high speed stability and low speed agility
