Make no compromises, Cannondale’s Jekyll Carbon 2 soars up the climbs and charges the descents. It’s all thanks to the extremely strong, light Ballistec HI-MOD carbon frame that boasts Fox's revolutionary DYAD rear shock that allows you to choose between 160mm or 95mm of travel to best suit the demands of the trail and your style of riding. Adjusting the travel also changes the geometry, and it's all done by a bar-mounted lever. The front suspension is just as revolutionary, a 1.5-inch head tube keeps the 160mm RockShox Pike RCT3 fork on your chosen line. This enduro sled lets you climb as well as you descend, with the fast-shifting, 11-speed SRAM drivetrain providing the power to crush every hill, up and down. Other trail-dominating components include SRAM's unbeatable Guide RS brakes, a descent-enhancing KS Lev dropper post, and tubeless-ready WTB wheels that leave compromises, and other riders, far off the back.

Trial riding but have brought it to Mammoth and Stens Pass with no complaints. Has helped me handle everything I've risked and mostly everything I didn't mean to. Lefty has more travel than I expect every time. When it's been tuned up and tightened it is extremely stiff. If you don't keep up on maintainence it can start to creak on you pretty bad. Cables are a disaster, cannondale? never again. It's beautiful and I love it,.
I've ridden Santacruz to Giant and no bike has a better fit, feel or plushness. The new Fox DYAD shock is amazing. The shifting has no glithes at all with the SRAM X-9. Buy this bike if your serious about being the best you can be.
