Cannondale Flash 1 29er
Incorporating the signature Lefty Carbon fork the Flash 29er is more than just a stunning looker. Sharing technology from the Cannondale road range the continuous carbon system adds stiffness to the key parts of the frame meaning that power is transferred efficiently and weight is saved.
What makes it special?
Feathering the scales at under 22lb (without pedals) the Flash is perfect for XC racing, Cannondale have incorporated their SAVE seat post in the Flash 1 which is designed to give extra shock absorption over rough ground.
This linked with the slim seat stays gives a smooth ride for such a stiff and agile frame. Like the Santa Cruz High Ball this is a solid XC or marathon machine that flies once you have the big wheels up to speed.
