Cannondale Lefty 2015

Posted on August 16 2017

Lefty Hybrid  - New models for 2015

 

The best of both worlds - needle bearings combined with a glide bearing and a wiper seal. Completely sealed against the elements, you still have the stiction free needle bearing plus glide bearing in Hybrid Lefty. These features also assist in supporting the lower leg for added stiffness, from the start of the stroke to the end through the smallest and largest of impacts. Just to cap it off, Hybrid Lefty has a 'self reseting' travel management feature enabling you to easily reset the travel without any shop tools.

Since 2013, The damper durability has also improved due to alloy oil damper caps containing glide bearings and urethan cup seals. The new 2015 damper features a new wider mouth piston which allows for increased oil flow, resulting in greater improved small bump sensitivity and high speed plushness. 2015 Lefty 2.0 is also available in multiple crown spacings to suit various frames on the market.


 

Lefty Hybrid 2.0 OPI

 

A bike that is as radically new and boundary-pushing as the 2015 F-Si demands an equally radical fork to complement its freakish handling and stiffness. That’s the new Lefty. The new Lefty 2.0 OPI PBR was specifically designed for the new F-SI! New XC damper - Similar style to the supermax 'enduro' damper but tuned for XC Setup.
New 29er specific 55mm offset. When combined with slack head angles, this creates the perfect balance of high speed stability and low speed agility. Available in three different clamp heights to ensure optimal adaptation to the rider size (97mm, 109mm and 122mm). It is now also possible to use also with an 80mm stem and 100mm of travel.

Alloy upper and 32mm lower leg
Wheel Size:

Damp & Spring:
PBR- Push Button Rebound featuring a firm (and tune-able!) threshold which offers greater efficiency for climbing and the 'Solo Air Spring' (self adjusting negative spring)
Travel (mm):
