Reborn with a completely new frame and 27+ wheels the Cannondale Beast of the East features fun trail geometry. This makes it more confident and capable over challenging terrain than traditional hardtail MTBs.
27 plus wheels
Built from the ground up for 27.5 plus wheels the Beast of the East features a slack head angle and short chainstays to make the best of this new wheel size. Wide rims and high volume tyres 27+ are a real bonus on a hardtail as they provide more grip and better cushioning. The ability to run lower tyre pressures combined with the large tyre diameter (similar to a 29er) allows you to take on much more challenging terrain than you would on a traditional hardtail.
AI and Save Stays
The frame is built with lightweight, smartformed, alloy tubes and features an Asymmetric Integration (AI) drivetrain that which allows for wider tyres whilst retaining a sensible Q-Factor and short chainstays. This means that your stance isn’t too wide and the handling is nimble and responsive.
Save Stays (profiled seat and chainstays) provide a compliant ride without affecting pedaling efficiency or handling performance.
With a bit more suspension travel than you would expect on a hardtail - to match the rough terrain capabilities of the plus sized wheels - the Lefty 2.0 fork offers plush bump absorption performance.
Offering a wide gear range with slick, reliable shifting the SRAM X1/GX drivetrain is a perfect choice on such a capable trail hardtail. Chain retention is excellent, even over very rough terrain, thanks to the clutch mech and the 30t SpideRing.
Whether you are a trail veteran or an MTB newbie the Cannondale Beast of the East 1 will give you the confidence to tackle more challenging terrain than you would on a conventional hardtail.
