Cannondale has given the Habit a much-needed nip and tuck for 2019. The previous 120mm travel frame was released in 2015 and was beginning to show its age compared to the rest of the competition.

The latest incarnation – the Habit Carbon 3 – boasts a BallisTec carbon fibre front triangle paired with an alloy swingarm, but that’s where the similarities end. Cannondale has based the Habit around a balanced 130mm of travel at either end of the bike. The frame has been completely redesigned and the geometry has been modernised.

The new range boasts six builds, from 1 for the top of the range to 6 at the opposing end and two builds for women to choose from. The two builds at the top of the range have full carbon framesets (£6,000 and £4,400 respectively) – the Habit 3 sits middle of the range, but swaps out the carbon swingarm for an alloy number. Builds 4, 5 and 6 (£2,599, £2,200 and £1,800) are constructed entirely from alloy.
