Coming soon: The all-new Cannondale Habit NEO! See the range, geometry, pricing and more.

Cannondale took their most fun trail bike and put a motor in it. Introducing Habit NEO….

Bosch has more than 10 years of experience with E-Bike systems and Cannondale went with their most powerful drive unit for the Neo: the new Bosch Performance Line CX. It’s a lightweight, compact, efficient and torquey system.

The Cannondale Habit Neo has all the geometry and tech of the Cannondale Habit which we tested earlier this year. The head angle is slack, the stays are short and the seat angle is steep. The Neo also features Cannondale’s Proportional Response approach to frame geometry which essentially tailors the suspension layout per frame size so that every rider gets optimal traction, suppleness and control. In terms of power, it’s the Bosch Performance CX drive unit and PowerTube battery which sit low and central in the frame to improve dynamic handling. The NEO rolls on 29” wheels, has wide bars and short stems. You also get dropper-posts and big brakes to deal with all the excitement from the 140mm fork and 130mm rear shred-sled. With South African availability set for December, we thought we would give you an overview of the four-model range:
