  • Product description

    The name might be old but the Cannondale Beast of the East 3 is a completely new hardtail mountain bike. Featuring 27+ tyres and a confidence inspiring trail geometry the Beast inspires confidence.

    27 plus wheels

    Built from the ground up to make the best use of the new 27.5+ wheel size the Beast features a fun trail geometry with a slack 88.5 degree head angle and short chainstays. The 27.5 plus wheels feature wide rims and high volume tyres which provide more grip and better cushioning. The ability to run lower tyre pressures combined with the large tyre diameter (similar to a 29er) means that the Beast can take on much more challenging terrain than a traditional hardtail.

    AI and Save Stays

    The lightweight alloy frame features an Asymmetric Integration (AI) drivetrain which allows for wide tyres (up to 3”) with short chainstays and a sensible Q Factor. This means that your stance isn’t too wide and handling is quick and responsive.

    The rear triangle features Save Stays which provide a more compliant, comfortable ride without affecting pedaling efficiency.

    120mm suspension fork

    More suspension travel than you would expect on a hardtail reflects the bikes ability to ride hard over challenging terrain.

    Shimano components

    The Shimano SLX/Deore ‘one by’ 10 speed drivetrain offers slick shifting over a wide range of gears and the chain will stay in place even when pinning it through rock gardens.

    The Beast of the East 3 is a fun MTB which will allow experienced hardtail riders to take on more challenging terrain as well as inspiring confidence in new riders.

    Key Features :

    • 27+ wheels offer more grip and extra float
    • Fun Trail Geometry invites you to ride rough, technical terrain
    • Save Stays add smoothness on bumpy ground
    • 120mm suspension fork for taking on challenging tracks
    • Sizes: Small, Medium, Large, X Large
    • Weight: 14.0kg, Medium (Tredz Tested - with pedals)
    • The Beast of the East 3 is available with 0% APR finance

    Rear Mech hanger

    As everyone else says, a brilliant bike love it to bits. Big smile every time I get on it. Tredz can't be faulted either. However, just a word of caution, the rear mech hanger snapped on mine. Now this part is supposed to break as a sacrificial part, so the frame doesn't get damaged, but mine broke while riding across a flat park, fortunately very close to home. I am writing this, not to dis the bike, but to suggest to you if you are going on a big ride maybe carry a spare mech hanger, as I will from now on. Easy to change so no problem there. Enjoy your BoEs they really are great bikes.

    The soooper beast

    Awesome mid fat trail bike. The uphill grip is sooooo good even over tree roots and rocks. Components all work perfectly (Shimano really are the original and the best). Needs a quick release seat clamp & chain device which I have added to make a perfect hard tail trail bike. Get one.... you wont be disappointed!

    What a Beast!

    I don't usually write reviews but felt I had to with this purchase. I want to start off by thanking Tredz, I purchased the bike online over the weekend & two days later it's at my door fully assembled & pretty much ready to go! All I had to do was straighten the bars & tighten them and pop the pedals on.(which they supply you with the tools for! Nice touch!)Great on price, great offer with free lights too! They even chucked a couple of packets of Haribo's in! 5 Stars to Tredz! The Beast from the east what a bike! I bought this as an upgrade from a Gt Avalanche, I was a bit sceptical about going from the normal 3 chain rings at the front to one but the hearing is amazing on this bike! It'll get you up any hill and it's rapid in the lower gears! My other concern was the chunky tyres I thought these will be great over the rough stuff but occasionally you end up hitting the tarmac at some point. But it rolls over tarmac smooth as butter! It's brilliantly balanced and nimble, looks the bollocks and has plenty! Can't wait for my next ride out.

    Amazing bike

    Bought this as my first proper mountain bike, I am amazed at what fun I've had with it. Beast of the east sums this bike up, amazing bike good on accents good on descents, can handle everything I've taken it on. Handles just as good as my names mid range full suspension hint trance. Wheels are massive, great control and doesn't stop the fun on the trails. Highly reccomend.
