The Cannondale Habit 4: An In-depth Look at its Features

There's a lot more to the Habit 4 than what meets the eye. The devil, as they say, is in the details. Here's what sets this trail beast apart from its counterparts.

Frame and Design

The Habit 4 boasts the highly robust and lightweight SmartForm C1 Alloy Frame boasting a unique proportional response suspension design, ISCG05 chain guide, and a 55mm chainline. This bike has been moulded not only to look appealing but to endure the most challenging off-road tracks. Its BSA threaded bottom bracket and tapered headtube adds to the overall strength while keeping the weight in check.

Proportional Response Suspension

One common problem with many bikes is that they use a one-size-fits-all approach to suspension performance. The Habit 4 breaks away from this theme with its Proportional Response Suspension that alters the layout by size, offering superior performance for riders of all heights.

The Heart of the Bike: Its Drivetrain

The Habit 4 is powered by a Shimano Deore M6100, 12-speed drivetrain with a seamless shift mechanism for those rapid up shifts and downshifts. This is complemented by a KMC X12 chain and a Shimano crank offering an efficient power transfer from the rider to the wheels.

Brakes and Wheels Matter

The Habit 4 sports Shimano MT200 hydraulic disc brakes with 180mm RT30 rotors to ensure quick, secure stops. The wheels are of WTB STX i25 TCS, tubeless-ready while the hubs are of Shimano MT400 (front) and MT410 (rear) presenting a solid grip on the tracks.

Riding Experience

Once astride the Habit 4, riders can expect to tackle different types of terrain with relative ease. Puddles, mud, gravel, or rocks, the Habit 4 navigates them all, thanks to its Maxxis Rekon 29x2.4" tyres. Conquer those inclines with ease as the 65.5° head tube angle and 77.5° seat tube set ensures optimal power transmission, making climbing a breeze. The Habit 4 offers an immersive trail-ridding experience that's powered by state-of-the-art technology, and it's an absolute joy to ride.


Overall, the Cannondale Habit 4 combines unrivalled performance with an impressive comfort level across various terrains. Many users rave about its Proportional Response Suspension which enhances control and adds greater balance to the ride. The Shimano Deore 12-speed drivetrain earns praise for its seamless shift mechanism. While riders appreciate the stopping power of the Shimano MT200 hydraulic disc brakes, the Maxxis Rekon tyres garner admiration for their superior grip on tough terrains. Whether you're looking to grind up hills, mash through flats or rip down descents, the Habit 4 is a fine choice.
