Description of Cannondale HABIT 4 Mountainbike 2017 - jet black
Get into the Habit!
Cannondale could have just called it the "sweet spot". Composed and capable enough to run with bigger-travel bikes, yet light and lively enough to put the hurt on the shaved-leg set, the Habit is mainly concerned with delivering the most important kind of MTB performance - pure, simple, idiot-grin fun! If you're looking for one bike to do it all, make it a Habit.
The Habit 4 mainframe and rear are made of SmartFormed Alloy. The shock link comes in carbon and saves 100 grams over the former alloy version.
The Zero Pivot rear is a special construction that needs no bearings, no bushings, nothing to add weight or cause play, just seat stays engineered to flex along a given path, providing a plush, progressive travel. It also reduce unsprung weight for better suspension response. The oversized axles in the swingarm and link lock into place with a unique expanding collet system, dramatically increasing the system stiffness.
The 120 mm travel, 68 degree head angle, custom 50 mm fork offset, short chainstays and low-slung chassis offer the perfect blend of speed and capability to let you shred whatever on the mountain throws your way. Suitable for that wide 760 mm bars, shorty 60 mm stems, 180/160 mm brake rotors and wider rims put you in absolute control.
The built in Lefty 2.0 fork comes with a combination of superior needle bearing technology and plain bearings. In contrast to the plain bearing only design of the competition, here a very low-friction guidance of the linear spring movement is achieved. That means that the fork does not have to overcome static friction during super-hard brakes, shocks and heavy steering effort. The wheel can hit the ground always free and guarantees maximum control. For 2017 it comes with a new air spring assembly, called 2Spring. This internal update decreases the strut's activation force by 7 lbs and makes for longer service intervals.
The Habit 27.5" 4 is equipped with the Shimano SLX drivetrain for smooth shifting performance with 2x11-speed. Proven hydraulic Shimano Deore disc brakes allow great braking power.
A solid wheelset with WTB's Stp i23 rims and Schwalbe Performance tires provide a guarantee that acceleration forces of any direction transfer directly to the trail. A wide lowriser handlebar provides maximum performance.
HABIT - Pure, simple, idiot-grin fun MTB performance!
