Cannondale Fat CAAD 1 Bicycle - Unisex


See available mountain bikes


Pairing massive, ultra-capable 3.8in. tires with an industry-leading frame, this bike is a monster truck with the soul of a racer. For riding fast on snow and other loose surfaces, the Fat CAAD features a slack head angle for reassuring handling and nimbleness on tight curves. The frame is a thing of ultralight beauty, with hydroformed, mechanically shaped tubes, ultra-refined taper butting and durable double-pass welds. 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 two years after purchase
