Depending on what style of mountain biking you want to focus on, there are a number of different types of Cannondale mountain bike to choose from. Here are some points to help you make your decision:

  1. Cross country: most mountain bikes will fit in to this particular category as this is by far the most common mountain bike. It can not only be used for cross country – meaning hills and mountains, but also even for commuting to and from work.
  2. Downhill bikes: this type of bike is for serious bikers who love the ultimate adventure. They very much depend on the strength of their components such as the rear and front suspensions, gears, disc brakes and indeed the framework. Most downhill bike riders will spend time and a lot of money customizing their own bike.
  3. Jump and slalom bikes: incredibly strong bikes, these are designed for not only jumping and slalom courses but also for street racing. Again, a very popular model for serious mountain bikers.
  4. Trials bikes: trials riding is a precision sport and requires a very high degree of skill. Again, similar to downhill riding, the more advanced pilots riders will design their own bikes rather than buy off the shelf.

As you can see there are a number of Cannondale mountain bikes that you can choose from and your final choice will depend upon your style. If you are really unsure about what style of bike suits you then the best thing to do is to try some out first before making the final decision.
