Cannondale recently brought a group of mountain bike journalists to Deer Valley, Utah, to launch a new bike, as well as go over its changes, to the “OverMountain” line. This new bike is the Trigger, a 120-millimeter (adjustable down to 70 millimeters) trail bike to fill the short-travel gap that was in the Cannondale OverMountain line.

I spent a day riding the riding the top-end (for the United States) Trigger 1 on the buff trails surrounding the Deer Valley Resort. It seems Cannondale chose the launch location well, as fast flowing trails with small jumps, dips and rollers, like those surrounding Deer Valley, Utah, are where the Trigger is best in its element. The bike is light and nimble making it a riot to pump through dips, rail corners and double up trail features. It seemed the more aggressively I rode the bike, the better it reacted.
The top end for the United States, the Trigger 1.
