NEW HYBRID LEFTY
LEFTY IS LIGHTER.
The Lefty Carbon XLR 100 weighs an unbelievable 1250 grams. Even the heaviest Lefty in the line-up at 1445 grams is lighter than most competitors’ lightweight race offerings.
LEFTY IS STIFFER.
Lefty’s unconventional design give it stiffness comparable to the burliest thru axle forks, while weighing less than the lightest XC forks. It combines lightweight efficiency with heavyweight control.
LEFTY IS STRONGER.
Gram for gram, Lefty is the strongest fork in the world. Even their lightest forks punch way above their weight class, going head to head in destructive testing with forks designed for much more abusive riding. The result is Cross-Country weight that meets All-Mountain toughness.
LEFTY IS SMOOTHER.
The heart of the Lefty, Cannondale’s patented hybrid needle-bearing technology keeps the suspension moving freely, regardless of load. Even under the hardest braking, impact, and steering forces, the wheel is able to track the ground fluidly for maximum control.
LEFTY IS LESS MAINTENANCE.
The new sealed hybrid bearing system is so robust that it requires around half the regular maintenance of the competition. With its long service intervals and completely replaceable wear-parts, you’ll spend less time and money servicing, and more time riding.
NEW Hybrid Lefty Technology
Sealed cartridge damper keeps air and oil separate for consistent, predictable damping.
Like racing motorcycle forks, Lefty has the larger diameter fork tube on top, the best arrangement for fighting flex and increasing strength lefty technology.
The new Durathon seal system eliminates the need for the old Lefty accordion boot for a cleaner look.
Detachable moto-style guard protects lower leg from rocks and debris
Dual Integrated Crowns
Dual Crowns clamp to an oversize steerer above and below the headtube distributing loads more evenly for a stronger and stiffer fork.
OPI Lower Leg/Axle
The One-Piece-Integrated lower leg and tapered 25mm-to-15mm axle are forged from a single piece of aluminium for incredible strength and stiffness.
HYBRID NEEDLE BEARING SYSTEM
This new feature combines the friction free action of Cannondale needle bearings with all-weather sealing and the additional support of a lower glide bearing. The result is smoother action under all loads and less maintenance than other forks.
ADVANTAGES OF THE HYBRID NEEDLE BEARING TECHNOLOGY
TROUBLE-FREE: Completely sealed, low-wear system offers around double the time between major services compared to the competition.
EVEN STIFFER: The glide bearing adds additional structural stiffness, especially deep in the travel.
SELF LUBRICATING: The new design seals out contaminants and seals in a small bath of lubricating oil for the bearings and glide bearing.
BOOT-FREE: Sealed design eliminates the need for the old accordion boot.
