Cannondale F-Si Carbon 2 2019 Mountain Bike Black and Red

The Cannondale F-SI Carbon 2 2019 Mountain Bike takes the, already really light, F-SI 3 and throws a bunch more carbon at it. The result is a bike that comes in under 10kg but is strong enough to charge the toughest XC courses and set new lap records at your local trail centre. The F-SI 2 is built around the Lefty Ochio, the smoothest, lightest XC fork ever made, and a carbon frame that weighs in at just 1.1kg. The F-SI is all about pushing the limits of what an XC hardtail can do. No other hardtail descends as fast, climbs as nimbly, or kicks harder, smoother. The F-SI is super light but that’™s almost a by-product of what Cannondale were aiming for with the F-Si. The Cannondale engineers focused on features that deliver real performance benefits out on the course. Features like Ai and OutFront, or improved compliance, or improved durability. That’™s what wins races, not saving the weight of a few sips of water. Cannondale’™s AI tech features on a lot of their road and mountain bikes. It makes the backend of the bike asymmetrical with an offset drivetrain. This allows them to make the back end of the bike much shorter which translates to better acceleration, better traction and more agile handling. The all-new Lefty Ocho fork floats through chop and steers through the choss like nothing else. Its extra-long fork offset pairs up with the F-Si’™s new, slacker 69° head angle to create the OutFront geometry that gives you extra stability to charge the downs, with full XC agility on the ups. Helping the F-Si track perfectly through whatever you throw it into. The F-SI is designed as an XC race bike and it does have a race orientated ride position but this bike also works great for any fast cross country riding. If you focus more on speed and distance covered rather than being gnarly then this could be the bike for you. The F-SI Carbon 2 comes with a Ballistec carbon frame, tubeless ready carbon wheels, custom offset AI carbon cranks, a carbon seat post and carbon handlebars. So basically, lots of carbon. The bits that aren’™t carbon include the SRAM X01 12 speed Eagle gearing and the super reliable Shimano Deore XT brakes. This bike is perfect for XC racers, marathon and endurance racers, or anyone who just likes going really fast cross country. The Cannondale F-SI Carbon 2 gets you a really light race bike with the ability to handle any XC course you want to ride at race winning speeds.
