Expirience with the Cannondale Trail SE 4

Cannondale Trail SE 4 Review With a little more suspension travel and wider tires, the Trail SE 4 is even more suitable for downhill fun than its little brother (Trail SL). Both bikes use the same frame. With its balanced handling, riding the Trail SE 4 feels really intuitive. The seating position can be described neither as sporty nor as comfortable. It has a moderate character. Looking at only the shifting system of the rest of the bikes you have to say that other manufacturers in the price range under 1500 Eurouse higher quality components. Apart from this criticism, the sporty orientation makes the Trail SE 4 the best climber in the price range below under 1500 Euro. A nice warranty promises sustainability. With 25 years warranty Cannondale sets the bar high!
