Is XC domination all you can think about? Cannondale's F29 Carbon Black Inc. easily lives up to the ultimate moniker. It all starts with a BallisTec carbon frame which features a stiff BB30 bottom bracket, stout 1.5-inch head tube and terrain-soothing SPEED SAVE rear stays. Tied to the front is Cannondale's renowned Lefty Carbon XLR throwing down 90mm of travel with unprecedented precision. It keeps getting better. This dream ride is loaded with dream spec like ridiculously fast ENVE carbon rims and XTR shifting with Cannondale's Hollowgram SL cranks putting everything into motion. XTR Race discs also slow you down and a Prologo carbon-railed saddle sits on an ENVE carbon post. You even get a carbon ENVE bar. With such an unbelievable set up, get ready to put those domination plans into action!

Cannondale Ballis-Tec carbonWhen constructing their carbon fiber frames, Cannondale uses high strength, high impact resins similar to those used in carbon baseball bats. The fibers and resins are put in a lay-up designed to maximize the anisotropic (direction specific) qualities, making for a bike that is light and stiff, and capable of absorbing impact without damaging the structural integrity. Once the frame has passed quality testing, Cannondale adds stiffer, higher-modulus fibers in safe areas to increase stiffness and tune the ride.

Cannondale's SPEED SAVE rear stays create a micro suspension system that allows the rear wheel to track the ground, improving comfort, control, traction and handling. This allows the bike to roll faster, accelerate better and corner harder without affecting pedaling efficiency.

BB30BB30 is an oversize bottom bracket standard that boosts stiffness and decreases weight. BB30 bottom bracket bearings are pressed directly into compatible frames, meaning there are no heavy external cups to thread in. And, BB30 cranksets feature 30mm-diameter spindles (standard spindles are smaller) for greater pedaling efficiency and increased power transfer.
