Cannondale Catalyst 2

Are you looking for your new bike that will be your companion in new adventures? With the Cannondale Catalyst 2, you will have the courage to face any trail in front of you and you will enjoy every second riding this high-quality bike.

Powerful hydraulic disc brakes.

Shimano 27-speed drivetrain.

Great suspension.

Not comfortable seat.

Small color choice.

This is one very good-looking hardtail mountain bicycle with great characteristics. Built from aluminum (6061) frame that reduces the weight and increases the durability, which creates precise handling and a nimble ride. The Cannondale Catalyst 2 lets you ride any trail with confidence.

For defeating every obstacle on your way, you are equipped with SR SunTour XCT suspension fork with 100 mm travel and Shimano M315 hydraulic disc brakes for immediate stopping power when needed. 27.5-inch wheels with quality Innova tires will roll easily on different kinds of terrains. And last but not least, for perfect shifting experience, you are equipped with Shimano Altus derailleurs with 27 gears available for adjusting your pace.
