CANNONDALE LEFTY SUPER MAX 130mm
With the standard Lefty it was always hard to use a stem that was shorter than 80 millimeters. But Cannondale has reworked these issues, they moved the Super Max’s stanchion back a bit and moved the front hub axle out at the same time. They changed the geometry just slightly to give it quicker handling abilities.
When moving the stanchion tubes back, they had to move the fork out slightly to get the best toe and frame clearance. They also created more width at the front hub, this ended up giving the front hub an additional 1cm between the spoke flanges, which made the lefty wheel stiffer laterally.
These Cannondale Super Max 130mm 29er forks will be available early November for aftermarket purchase. But for the Cannondale lineup the fork will only be available on the new Cannondale Trigger 29er bikes for the moment. They are expected to be allocated to other mountain bikes in the C-dale model lineup right soon, and these forks now have 1.5 inch headtubes, so they are finally compatible with regular mtb stems, (not just Cannondale).
