The All-New Cannondale Habit. A Mountain Bike for Mountain Biking

Cannondale (United States) - Habit. A Mountain Bike for Mountain Biking.

Climbs and Descends like a Champ:

Equipped with 29" wheels, Big grippy tires and 130mm of travel front and rear, the Habit is built to tame unruly trails everywhere.

Modern Trail Spec:

The Habit is ready to ride with properly wide bars, a short stem, powerful brakes, 1X drivetrain and, of course, a dropper post- all to give the rider complete command of the trail, any trail.

Easy Ownership:

The Habit is designed to be a "daily ride" with proven durable suspension pivots, tube-in-tube internal cable routing and is built for easy service- no proprietary tools required.

Proportional Response:

The Habit's all-new suspension design philosophy delivers a bike engineered for every size rider, meaning optimized kinematics for all. Utilizing size-specific Center-of-Gravity (COG) data, the suspension linkage arrangement for every size of bike was tailored so that each rider experiences optimized suspension performance while braking and improved overall peddling efficiency. Proportional Response optimizes Habit's ride for more control, more efficiency and flat out more fun.


For those keeping score, Ai is like Boost but way better. Ai paved the way for the Habit to have 435mm chainstays that are more nimble and capable in corners while still having loads of tire clearance and stiffness.

Modern Trail Geometry:

With a 66 degree headtube angle and a steep seattube angle the Habit puts the rider in the right position for when the trails head up, and gets the saddle down low and out of the way when it's time to get down.

Cannondale Spoken:

Design engineer Josh Hursh will walk you through the show-stopping newness of the Habit, in particular Proportional Response, Cannondale’s suspension design approach that optimizes on-trail performance no matter a rider’s size.
