Product Description

Big, bouncy and utterly bonkers. The Cannondale Fat CAAD 2 mountain bike is the bicycle equivalent of a monster truck, with the soul of a racer.

It may be fat, but it sure can dance! Cannondale are among the world leaders in aluminium wizardry, and the fat CAAD takes full advantage of that. The SmartFormed C1 alloy keeps the bike light, while the SAVE micro-suspension technology gives it just a little bit of controlled vertical flex in the rear triangle, taking the sting out of any rough terrain.

Cannondale’s own SI crankset uses custom chainring offsets to make sure the extra width of the Fat CAAD doesn’t leave it with an uncomfortable Q-factor. The frame & fork are also designed with a long front centre and a short trail, giving the bike outstanding high speed stability, with fast-response steering for low-speed agility.

Those enormous tyres are 26x4.8 inch wide Schwalbe Jumbo Jim’s, with snakeskin puncture protection. They’re just at home floating along on top of the snow as they are kicking up the dirt and ironing out the braking ruts on your favourite mountain bike trail.

The Fat CAAD 2 is outfitted with a Fatty-Fat Rigid fork, and a crazy-wide 150x15mm thru axle. Gearing comes courtesy of SRAM’s popular 2x10 X5/X7 combo, delivery rapid response and a reliable package that will power you up the mountain climbs and blast you down the other side. Massive tyres mean massive grip, and the SRAM Guide hydraulic disc brakes have plenty of power, making sure you can use all the available grip when you want it.

Key Features:

  • SmartFormed alloy with SAVE micro suspension system keeps the weight down and the comfort up
  • Cannondale Fatty-Fat alloy fork with a short trail measurement gives rapid and precise steering
  • SRAM X5/X7 2x10 speed gears are a tried, tested and trusted combination
  • SRAM Guide hydraulic disc brakes make full use of the massive tyre grip
  • Schwalbe Jumbo Jim 26x4.8in tyres with Snakeskin puncture protection
  • Sizes: Small, Medium, Large, X Large
  • Colour: Matte Green Clay
  • The Cannondale Fat CAAD 2 is available with 0% APR finance

Great value fat bike!

With the current discounted prices, this fat bike is value good value for money. Note that the tyres are 4.4inch and not 4.8inch due to clearance issues. Apparently Cannondale changed the specs during the 2017 season. The bike is very easy to ride and looks fantastic. Everything feels solid on the bike. I ordered a small size but bear in mind that the seatpost length is 400mm even on the small size so this may be an issue for some. I've since replaced the original seatpost with a 350mm seatpost. The stock brakes are SRAM Guide R brakes and work very well. Bear in mind that these use DOT 5.1 fluid. It's quite a heavy bike and feels very stable when riding it. The saddle is fairly decent for a stock saddle. The shift and brake levers will need Torx wrenches to adjust, but are easily adjustable if you have the right Torx wrenches. All in all, I'm very happy with my purchase.
