The Cannondale Habit Carbon 3 gives riders a great price on a fun and versatile carbon mountain bike. From backcountry adventures to single track rides, the Habit strikes a perfect balance of performance and fun. This bike sets itself apart from others due to its ability to take on a complete range of trails and mountain conditions with its modern geometry, dirt-ready spec, groundbreaking technology, and flawless adjustability for different body types. The Cannondale Habit Carbon 3 is the best price you can get on such a versatile and explosive carbon trail bike.
The geometry of the frame is what makes the Habit such a fun and versatile bike. A 66-degree headtube angle simultaneously provides confidence for downhill riding without sacrificing climbing ability. 130mm of front and rear travel in the suspension gives riders balanced shock absorption which helps keep you balanced on those technical descents without losing flow on flat trails. A lowered bottom bracket is better for tight cornering while an asymmetrical drivetrain allows for shorter 435mm chainstays, adding to the bike’s precision. This version has 27.5-inch wheels which are great for control and nimble movement. Flip Chip Geometry Adjustment optimizes the bottom bracket height based on your choice of wheel size or impending trail conditions.
The ride quality of the Cannondale Habit Carbon 3 is smooth and welcoming. It is consistent for riders of all sizes and adds up to more speed, control, and fun. The rider accounts for 85 percent of the overall ride weight and the Habit suspension attacks that, giving you a lighter feel. A great center of gravity helps smaller riders achieve better braking without losing any suspension performance while larger riders get a better balance of pedaling and climbing. With the all-around convenience of the Habit, you will have a bike for everyday fun.
Designed to be your go-to bike, the Cannondale Habit is easy to ride and easy to maintain. A proven and durable suspension with strong hardware assures that your Habit will not fail you when things get dicey. The frame aims to please as well with a pair of water bottle mounts inside the main triangle. Internal cable routing also eases installation and eliminates rattling during your ride. If you are ready to take on any trail imaginable, the Cannondale Habit Carbon 3 gives you nimble performance at a great price.
