This is a performance cyclocross bike that has been a start line favorite for years. The head tube angle is slack to give it stability on gnarly descents but that doesn’t come at the cost of agility. It handles beautifully and doesn’t feel too finicky through techy trail sections. With the lightweight Cannondale BallisTec carbon construction and a SRAM Force 1 groupset, this cyclocross shredder weighs just 18 pounds 7 ounces. The 1x drivetrain is perfect for ‘cross, but if you want to build up a gravel grinder the frame is compatible with mechanical and electronic front derailleurs. With skinny race tires there is plenty of mud clearance and the frame has 40mm of tire clearance for long days on gravel. Strong alloy wheels are ready to take on the toughest race with grippy Maxxis tires.
