2011 Cannondale Trail SL 29’er

The Trail SL 29’er is an awesome entry-level 29’er. With its relaxed race geometry, it gives the rider more stability than the racing oriented Flash 29’ers. If you are looking for a hardtail and don’t want to spend more than $1000, this is the bike for you. Since 29’ers came out, there have not been any good options available at a reasonable starting price point. Well here it is. 29 inch wheels roll over the small stuff better than their 26 inch brethren, so you don’t need as much suspension travel. The Trail SL frames feature SAVE micro-suspension in the rear triangle mated to the 1.5″ headtube for stiffness and confidence in handling.

Glutton for punishment? The rigid single speed version has your name on it.

For 2010, Cannondale’s $1000 29’er was one of our most popular bikes, and we sold as many as we could get our hands on. If you’re curious about going 29, these are a great bike to give it a good try… you’ll be hooked.
