CAAD GOES BIG!
They may be Fat but, man, can these things dance! Cannondale's System Integrated technology and aluminum wizardry combine the fun, floaty traction of a fat bike with the heart and soul of a racer. FAT CAAD is so agile and quick, you'll want to ride them even when it's not snowing.
CAAD - CANNONDALE ADVANCED ALUMINUM DESIGN
Our CAAD heritage shines again in the SmartFormed frame of the Fat CAAD. Incredibly light, stiff and smooth riding, the Fat CAAD is a testament to Cannondale’s decades of aluminum crafting expertise.
FAT PERFORMANCE GEOMETRY
Fat bikes don’t have to be slow and cumbersome, the Fat CAAD was made to rip no matter what the season. We tweaked all the angles and infused our XC learning to create a super nimble, speed craving machine.
In the world of fat biking there is no more ideal fork than the Lefty. The Lefty Olaf is has unmatched stiffness and control to keep the big meat pointed exactly where you want it. Olaf ’s wider clamps and inset axle offers the largest tire clearance of any fork and its fat-specific airspring curve works wonders with those pillowy tires. 100mm travel.
Thanks to our System Integrated components, the Fat CAAD has the lowest Q-Factor in the game (198mm for 1x, 204mm for 2x), which is up to 2.5cm narrower than other 4.8” tire compatible bikes! Our 120mm BB30XL bottom bracket and custom offset chainrings on our Si cranksets allow us to move the crankarms further in without affecting chain clearance, so it feels like riding a bike, not a horse.
SUPER SHORT CHAINSTAYS
Thanks to our Si cranksets and offset spiders, we were able to keep the chainstays to just 456mm for surprisingly agile handling, even with room for big 4.8” tires.
EXTRA FORK RAKE
With their huge, grippy contact patch and heavy rotational mass, fat bike tires don’t really like to turn, especially at slower speeds. To overcome that tendency, most fatbikes have pretty steep head angles, which works, but also can make the bikes more nervous and twitchy at speed. Fat CAAD takes a totally different approach. We use a relatively slack head angle for high speed stability, and pair it with forks that have up to 15mm more rake (offset) than other forks, to reduce the “ trail” measurement for exceptional slow-speed agility.
