Delve into the Design of the Cannondale Habit 3

The Habit 3 harnesses a SmartForm C1 Alloy Frame, crafted for a rider-focused experience. The unique Habit geometry is curated around the rider's size with Cannondale's Proportional Response Design concept. The suspension layout, geometry, right down to the length of the chain stays, is customised by size amplifying both performance and experience for individual riders.

With the head tube angle at 65.5 ̊ and seat tube set at 77.5 ̊, the Habit 3 places the rider in an optimal position, favouring both uphill and downhill rides. The updated 55mm chain line standard guarantees tire clearance while threaded bottom brackets and universal derailleur hanger provide peace of mind and simplicity to the rider.

Superior Suspension and Well-considered Components

The key to the Habit 3's smooth ride lies in its innovative suspension system. Proportional Response Suspension alters the layout by size, using the rider's center of gravity to optimise performance for each model. This, in harmony with the RockShox Deluxe Select+ shock absorber and Pike 140mm fork, ensures a comfortable ride across various terrain.

Packing a punch, the Hubit 3 features a SRAM NX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain enhancing speed selection while on trail. Furthermore, SRAM G2 R 4-piston hydraulic disc brakes deliver seamless stopping power in crucial moments. When the trail gets gnarly, the TranzX dropper post enables swift saddle height adjustments on the fly.

Dependable Design and Protective Features

The Habit 3 design prioritises dependability and ease. Proportional Response entails size-specific frame geometry to the length of the chainstays. The universal derailleur hanger is a well-considered feature reducing the chance of potential issues. A rugged rubber guard offers extra protection, guarding the downtube from potential strikes and punctures.


Through its blend of meticulously chosen components and superior geometry, the Habit 3 stands out in the realm of trail bikes. Riders commonly praise its balanced feel and agile response to rider input, which gives a confidence boost while on the trails. With a focus on providing an uncompromised experience, it's clear why the Habit 3 is the preference amongst trail enthusiasts.
