The 2017 Cannondale Bad Habit Carbon 2 runs on 27.5 rims with 3 inch tires resulting in increased roll-over capability and superior traction. Cannondale has designed the Bad Habit Carbon 2 from the ground up with geometry and suspension that realizes the potential of its 27+ wheels; the RockShox Pike fork and RockShox Monarch shock, both with 120mm of travel, being dialed to compliment the 3 inch tire’s inherent suspension qualities. Tubeless ready, carbon rims from WTB further increase traction and flat protection while saving weight too. An 1×11-speed cassette and 30T chainring from SRAM keep the shifting simple and clean and extremely powerful. If you are riding loose and rocky trails, or wanting to extend your riding season, only good things can come from riding a Cannondale Bad Habit Carbon 2.
The 27+ wheels and tires found on Cannondale’s Bad Habit Carbon 2 promise both improved traction and a great ride. Higher volume tires have been well received with riders taking on terrain that their old mountain bike just couldn’t handle. Offering tons of traction, and an exaggerated ability to roll over almost anything, 27+ will prove to be a turning point in off-road bike design. Cannondale optimizes this potential through geometry specific to the new fatter tires with 120mm of suspension enhancing an already super-smooth ride quality. For the drivetrain Cannondale chose SRAM X1 components propelled by their own Si cranks while SRAM Guide R disc brakes provide the stopping power. The WTB Scraper wheels are tubeless ready and paired with Schwalbe Nobby Nic tires. The frame construction compliments Cannondale’s BallisTec carbon that results in a super light full-suspension plus-sized bike that can handle any terrain.
This 2017 Cannondale Bad Habit Carbon 2 is size Medium and the color Military Green with Jet Black, Anthracite, and Acid Red accents.
