CANNONDALE suspension fork 28"/700C Lefty Oliver Carbon | 30 mm
Dampens everything except your driving pleasure.
The ultimate built-for-gravel fork with 30mm of plush, shock-absorbing travel and an incredibly stable, precise chassis.
Precision, control, efficiency. Whether on the road or the most demanding trails, uphill or downhill, the Lefty Oliver is your reliable companion.
Compared to any other cycling discipline, gravelling has its own unique requirements. It needs the stiffness values of a racing bike paired with comfort reserves. Lefty Oliver isn't just a MTB suspension fork with less travel. Lefty Oliver was specially built for the ever-growing demands of the gravel segment. Cannondale relies on a unique construction method including specially developed damping. The suspension travel? Just enough to reduce fatigue over longer distances, but without compromising on hard acceleration. Ergo, no seesaw, no sagging and no movements that impair efficiency.
Because of the balanced performance, you can rely on your Lefty on any terrain and on any adventure. The direct and noticeable benefit for you: a later braking point, a safer line, especially on loose ground, and first-class comfort. No matter where your adventures take you. With the Lefty Oliver you are always in control.
Externally adjustable rebound
The easy-to-reach knob for perfect rebound adjustment.

Easily accessible to adjust your setup at any time in seconds.
Simply constructed and reliably working lockout with an actuation on the fork crown.
The needle bearings on three sides inside the stanchion secure the dip tube against twisting and give you incredible steering precision.

The self-adjusting brake socket with FM 160 mm standard can be removed with a 180° turn of the quick release. So nothing stands in the way of a quick and easy impeller removal. With the right adapter, brake discs up to 180 mm are permitted.
