Show Description

Pairing massive, ultra-capable 3.8in. tires with Cannondale's industry-leading aluminum frame expertise, this bike is a monster truck with the soul of a racer. Ideal for riding fast on snow and other loose surfaces, the Fat CAAD features a slack head angle for reassuring handling on tight trails and speedy logging road descents. The alloy framework is a thing of beauty, with hydroformed, mechanically shaped tubes, ultra-refined taper butting and smooth, double-pass welds for an ultralight, stiff and durable frame. A simple, reliable Shimano 1X drivetrain provides a huge gear range for steep climbs, and integrated cranks with offset chainring reduce the Q-factor by 2.5cm (compared to most fat bikes), so it feels like you're riding a bike rather than straddling a horse.

  • Ultralight and durable SmartForm C1 Alloy frame is Cannondale's premium 6061 aluminum construction.
  • OutFront steering geometry pairs a slack head angle with long fork offset for stability, confidence and agility.
  • Rigid aluminum fork is reliable and super-efficient on firm surfaces.
  • Integrated cranks and offset chainring means a narrower Q-factor and comfortable, ergonomic pedalling.
  • Shimano SLX 1x11-speed shifter and derailleur is paired with a Sunrace 11-46T cassette.
  • Hydraulic disc brakes provide unmatched stopping power in all conditions.
  • 27.5" wheels provide a balance of agility and low rolling resistance.
  • Huge Maxxis Minion tires provide float in snow, sand and mud, fantastic grip on climbs and a smooth ride in uneven terrain.
  • Bikes are covered by MEC's Rocksolid Guarantee and Bike Service Agreement. You can bring your bike to any MEC Bike Shop for free adjustments and minor maintenance for a year after purchase.
