This precision instrument is for the enduro artists, the ones who will use its Gemini dual-travel and poppy quickness to dance and float through the chop and chunder on their way to the top step. The Jekyll delivers all the slack stability you’d expect from a top enduro rig, but with uncanny agility and snap, thanks to 27.5 wheels and the ultra-short chainstays of our Ai rear end. Asymmetric Integration (Ai) delivers some of the shortest stays on the trail, yet has more tire clearance and frame stiffness than even Boost frames can muster. Plus a rear wheel that’s stiffer and stronger thanks to the Ai even-dish build. It all adds up to the kind of agility and traction that has to be ridden to be believed. Co-developed with Fox, the Gemini system adds two ride modes (Hustle & Flow) to the killer performance of Fox shocks. Flip to Hustle to shorten the travel and ramp up the spring rate for a snappier, more responsive feel for pumping through turns, sprints, and traction-challenged climbs. Flip back to Flow for full Fox travel when things get rough. Placing a link between the swingarm and the shock allows Cannondale's engineers to customize the system's leverage ratios for optimal suspension response throughout the stroke and keep the suspension active under braking while retaining the stiffness, durability, and reliability of a single pivot design.
