    This was posted on their IG account this morning. Great to see more manufacturers getting in the game.

    yep, link working for me too. If nothing else, it looks like an "official" lefty is coming, but I don't know that frame, so hopefully complete.

    hmmmm, interesting!

    That headtube and lefty definitely look "official", too bad that's all we get to see.

    Tease...

    I've never ridden a lefty bike , I reckon just having the one sided fork would spin me out abit
    Anyways the more big produces Re getting into fattys the better I say

    So did Cannondale really tease this just before interbike, and then not show anything? Blueballers

    My LBS says next year at the earliest. There is no real info out there on the subject.

    If they are going to do it, they might as well just come out with a fat lefty & rear suspension....

    The world doesn't need another hardtail....lol

    Head shock redo on a fat would be cool.

    I think Cannondale has abandoned that tech. I've seen some C'dale comfort bikes with headshok-type suspension manufactured by Suntour.

    Nope, they still have them.

    Cannondale has put other makers forks on their entry level comfort and hybrid bikes for years.

    A $400+ fork makes it tough to have a bike in that magic, sub $500/600 starter pricepoint.

    As for the bike in question, I know nothing, but glad they finally listened to me!

    The fork on that bike has suntour branding all over it. It doesn't say "Cannondale" or "Headshok" anywhere. Patent expire, possibly? Either way, I think the Lefty is a better fork for fatbikes, anyway.
