With Cannondale's Flash Carbon 4, you're in hardtail heaven! The climbing is fast in this off-road paradise thanks to a unbelievably light carbon frame paired with Cannondale's super-smooth, 100mm-travel Lefty Speed fork. This bike is compliant out back, too, thanks to SAVE chainstays that allow some vertical movement to keep you fresher over longer courses. An impressive mix of parts offers a great balance of race-ready weight with serious durability, such as a SRAM X9/X7 10-speed drivetrain, Mavic wheels and Avid Elixir brakes. What's more, you get Schwalbe tires for superb grip and a supportive Prologo saddle, too.
