Cannondale’s mountain bike offering has been given a massive boost with the launch of the all new Jekyll. This is a 170/165 enduro machine with dream spec and we have been lucky enough to have one of the first test rides in the UK.
We took the Jekyll around the classic Lakeland trails of Iron Keld, Hodge Close and Little Langdale.
It’s Hustle and Flow shock and geometry performed flawlessly – Hustle mode enables you to get right over the pedals and get the power down on the technical climbs and there was nothing in the ride it couldn’t handle. And the Flow mode allowed you to attack the descents and get the best out of the bikes 170 and 165 travel.
Hustle and Flow has been co-developed with Fox and Cannondale. Flip the bar mounted lever 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.
