Product Description

The Cannondale Beast of the East 2 is an all new mountain bike, featuring 27+ wheels and fun trail geometry, making it more confident and capable over challenging terrain than a traditional hardtail MTB.

27 plus wheels

The name might be an old classic but this new Beast of the East is designed from the ground up specifically for the new 27.5+ wheel size - wide rims and high volume tyres providing more grip and better cushioning. The larger diameter tyres (similar to a 29er) combined with the ability to to run lower tyre pressures means that you can take on  much more challenging terrain than you would on a conventional hardtail.

AI and Save Stays

Lightweight with smartformed alloy tubes the frame features an Asymmetric Integration (AI) drivetrain which allows for a sensible Q-factor and short chainstays. This means that you’ll have an optimal stance and the bike remains nimble in technical terrain.

Compliance is built into the rear end thanks to Save Stays. The seat and chainstays are shaped to allow some vertical flex without affecting pedaling efficiency. This is the same frame as found on the Beast of the East 1.

120mm Rock Shox Reba

Featuring more suspension travel than you would usually find on a hardtail the Rock Shox Reba RL Boost fork offer plush, composed performance so that you can take on more aggressive terrain.

SRAM 1x11

Featuring a wide gear range (one extra low gear than the Beast 3) with slick reliable shifting and excellent chain retention the SRAM GX drivetrain is combined with a Cannondale Si chainset.

The Cannondale Beast of the East 2 is a plus sized hardtail that will inspire confidence in new and experienced riders alike.

Key Features :

  • A maximum traction, maximum fun, trail hardtail
  • Great for shredders and newbies alike.
  • The rebirth of a legend.
  • 27. 5 + Tyres - This new standard changes the way hardtails perform over rough terrain. 27.5+ offers the rolling diameter of a 29er for an incredible angle of approach. The added width gives you an incredible contact patch that lets you grip the corners like never before, float over nasty rocks and roots and hit the roughest lines with confidence.
  • Designed For 27+ - Unlike many "27+" bikes out there which are really just repurposed 29'ers running 2.8 tyres, the Beast of the East is designed specifically for 27+. Room for full 3.0 tyres, Ai drivetrain, short chainstays and dialled geometry means better performance and more fun.
  • AI (Asymmetric Integration) Drivetrain - Our Ai technology allows us to fit those big 3.0 tyres and still keep our chainstays short and nimble. By asymmetrically offsetting the rear triangle and moving the drivetrain 6mm to the right, we gain clearance for the tyres without wrecking the q-factor. As a bonus, the rear wheels ends up being stiffer and stronger thanks to even spoke angles.
  • Smartformed Alloy Frame - Cannondale's storied Aluminium histor y continues with the Beast of the East. The SmartFormed alloy frame has been tweaked to be light and responsive, features Save stays for added comfort and adds tech with the new flat mount brake for reduced weight with increased heel clearance.
  • 120MM Forks - A bike this capable deserves a bit more travel than you'd expect on a hardtail.
  • Fun Trail Set-Up - A 68.5 degree head angle, short chainstays and a 120mm fork combine to allow the Beast of the East ridden hard over the nastiest terrain. The slack trail geo pairs nicely with wide 760mm bars and a 60mm stem for total control and fun confidence.
  • Internal Dropper Routing - Clean, internal routing through the seat tube for dropper posts
