Introducing the All-New Habit Neo & Redesigned Moterra

Cannondale unveils the Moterra and Habit NEO, two all-new e-mountain bikes crafted to bring exceptional handling and serious capability to every kind of trail, from the nasty and gnarly to the flowy and fun. The new Moterra is built to thrive on rugged descents and technical climbs in the high mountains but is happy to play wherever it’s pointed. The Habit NEO is the snappy, lively, do-it-all trail machine that ramps up the fun factor on fast, flowy singletrack, while having the chops to tackle anything the mountain has to offer.

Moterra offers more serious all-mountain capability, with 160mm of terrain-swallowing travel front and rear; big forks, and beefier component specs. It runs on 29” wheels for all sizes except Small, which switches to 27.5” for a better fit for smaller riders. While it shines on the rowdier trails, the Moterra displays incredible poise on mellower terrain as well, making it easy for riders to roll with more travel and more capability than they otherwise would.

For riders who truly live for the descents, there is the Moterra SE, a full-on, no-car shuttle machine. It takes Moterra’s trail capability and kicks it up a few notches with a 180mm RockShox Boxxer fork, a Super Deluxe Select piggyback shock and super-sticky Maxxis Assegai tires.

The Habit NEO is designed for the fast and flowy end of the trail spectrum. It has 130mm of suspension in the rear and 140mm up front, as well as 29” wheels with big grippy tires across all sizes, giving it the same well-rounded playfulness as its non-electric cousin, the Habit. It’s agile, poppy and fun on all kinds of trails, for all kinds of riders.

The Moterra and Habit NEO feature Bosch’s brand new, industry-leading drive unit and battery technology. The new lightweight and more compact Performance CX drive unit delivers incredible torque and power to get up any climb and is unmatched in its smooth and natural feel. That power, paired with fully integrated, yet easily removable 500wh and 625wh Powertube batteries, make range anxiety a thing of the past.

Both bikes use Cannondale’s BallisTec carbon fiber construction for frames that are light, stiff, and durable enough for life-time warranties. They also feature Cannondale’s size-specific Proportional Response Suspension Technology. This groundbreaking design technology is the only system that alters the suspension kinematics by frame size to ensure the best possible suspension response for every size rider in every situation. Factoring in the lower center of gravity and additional power of the drive units, Proportional Response maximizes traction and suspension response to deliver exceptional grip while climbing, superior braking on descents, and a more lively, responsive feel over every part of the trail.

The progressive long, low and slack geometry of the Moterra and Habit NEO, paired with properly wide bars and properly short stems, delivers confident, stable handling, while Cannondale’s proprietary Si motor mount positions the drive unit low and forward for optimal weight distribution, for a surprisingly nimble, agile feel.

Kitted out for serious trail duty, both bikes are equipped with dropper seatposts, powerful hydraulic disc brakes with huge 220 or 200mm rotors, and even bright Supernova front lights on the top models so riders can keep the fun going long after the sun sets.

The all new Moterra will be available in 3 models plus the Moterra SE. The Habit NEO will be available in 4 models. For more information on the all-new Moterra and Habit NEO, visit Cannondale.com. Be sure to also follow Cannondale on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube.

The Right Stuff Powerful Bosch Performance CX drive unit and PowerTube battery. 29” wheels with grippy tires. Properly wide bars and properly short stems. Dropper posts. Big brakes. Real parts for real performance.

Trail Railer
Playful and poppy. Confident and precise. With 130mm of dialed suspension in back, 140mm up front and perfectly sorted geometry, Habit NEO is ready to rail on any trail.

Proportional Response
Utilizing size-specific Center-of-Gravity data, the suspension linkage is tailored by size so that every rider experiences optimized suspension performance while braking, climbing and descending.

Built Light. Built Tough.
A BallisTec Carbon frame keeps the mass to a minimum. But since our engineers prioritized durability over gram-counting, confidence is built in (so is a lifetime warranty).
