Cannondale Jekyll 2: Design and Technology Detail

The Jekyll 2 is crafted with a distinctive blend of innovation that ensures it has a better performance than ever before. One of its standout features is the unique combination of 4-bar, high pivot, and idler pulley systems, complemented with size-specific kinematics. The result is incredible grip, pedal efficiency, and smooth float even in rough terrains. To top it all, Jekyll 2 offers exceptional downhill performance making it an absolute favourite among downhill riders.

This bike features a RockShox Zeb Select 170mm fork and Float DPX2 Performance Shock, which provides an impressive suspension system. It also comes equipped with a Shimano Deore 12-speed drivetrain and Deore M6120 hydraulic disc brakes boasting efficient shifting and braking in all weather conditions. The wheels are built to support this performance, with WTB 30mm rims, sustainable Maxxis EXO+ tires and a robust dropper post.

The design of Jekyll 2 is rather distinctive. The bike's shock tucks neatly into the twin spar downtube, helping keep the bike's center of gravity low. This implies high-speed stability, instant line changes, and improved aesthetic appeal. Its Proportional Response design ensures all elements - from the suspension layout to the geometry, even the length of the chainstays - is completely customized by size, for ideal performance.
