Cannondale Jekyll 3
$3,150.00
This precision instrument is for the enduro artists, the ones who will use its Gemini dual-travel and poppy quickness to dance and float through the chop and chunder on their way to the top step. The Jekyll delivers all the slack stability you’d expect from a top enduro rig, but with uncanny agility and snap, thanks to 27.5 wheels and the ultra-short chainstays of our Ai rear end. Asymmetric Integration (Ai) delivers some of the shortest stays on the trail, yet has more tire clearance and frame stiffness than even Boost frames can muster. Plus a rear wheel that’s stiffer and stronger thanks to the Ai even-dish build. It all adds up to the kind of agility and traction that has to be ridden to be believed. Co-developed with Fox, the Gemini system adds two ride modes (Hustle & Flow) to the killer performance of Fox shocks. Flip to Hustle to shorten the travel and ramp up the spring rate for a snappier, more responsive feel for pumping through turns, sprints, and traction-challenged climbs. Flip back to Flow for full Fox travel when things get rough. Placing a link between the swingarm and the shock allows Cannondale's engineers to customize the system's leverage ratios for optimal suspension response throughout the stroke and keep the suspension active under braking while retaining the stiffness, durability, and reliability of a single pivot design.
Cannondale Scalpel-Si 5
$3,150.00

Unbelievably rigid and precise, Lefty out-corners, out-handles and flat-out rides circles around its flexy XC competition. Its custom extra-long fork offsets (rake) makes Cannondale's OutFront Steering Geometry possible. Proprietary Ai offset drivetrain delivers super short chainstays for climb-winning traction and agile handling, without sacrificing mud/tire clearance or limiting you to single ring set-ups.
Cannondale Jekyll 4
$3,199.99
When you’re on the Jekyll 4 from Cannondale, nothing dares get in your way.

Together, they make easy work of gnarly descents where the only break you get is the climb back up. Since we’re talking about climbing, the Jekyll is no slouch in the uphill department, either, with a switch-on-the-fly rear suspension that offers Hustle Mode for tenacious efficiency. Put the power to the Shimano SLX drivetrain via Cannondale’s Si crankset, and you’ll gain elevation as fast as you drop the competition. And, for all-mountain dominance, you won’t find better rubber than the Jekyll’s Maxxis Minions, wrapped around 29mm WTB STP rims, well-known as workhorse hoops that’ll bail you out of your risky moves straight as an arrow. Shimano also provides powerful hydraulic brakes that keep you on course, even when that course can only be described as “sketchy.” So, jump on, slam the TransX dropper post, and flow this trail beast straight to victory.
