Cannondale started from the ground up with new geometry, super-short chainstays and their highly regarded SmartForm alloy construction to make their first big bikes as fast as they are fat. You’ll soon discover that even with 4.8 inch tires this sand and snow slayer has the handling skills of an XC racer. As well, the 2017 Cannondale Fat CAAD 3 has the lowest pedal-to-pedal measurement (Q factor) than any other fat bike, making it feel less like horseback riding than other fat bikes. Shimano Deore components make for easy shifting with a 11-36 tooth cassette and dual chainrings providing ample gearing to keep you pedaling over rocks, sand and snow. Get on a Cannondale Fat CAAD 3 when you want your riding season to last all year long.
A Fat CAAD 3 from Cannondale rolls on 4.8 inch wide tires to give you traction and control no matter the trail conditions. Low-pressure tires and low-range gearing allow you to float over and ride terrain that would cause your old mountain bike to sink. Fitted with a rigid fork and narrow Q factor this SmartForm alloy frame combines the fit and feel of a cross-country bike with the off-road prowess of fat tires. Cannondale makes the Fat CAAD frame with super-short chainstays and fat-bike specific geometry that bless it with a much livelier feel than other bikes in its class. The equipped wheelset consists of a set of 80mm wide, 26 inch Cannondale FAT rims, which are light for their size, and give the 4.8 inch Kenda Juggernaut tires plenty of support at lower pressures. Shimano Deore components round out the 2×10 drivetrain while Cannondale Si crank arms aid in saving weight and decreasing the bike’s Q factor. Take the Fat CAAD 3 from Cannondale for spin when bad weather or poor trail conditions stop your current bike in its tracks.
