2015 Test Sessions: Cannondale Jekyll Carbon Team 1

After taking a win at the notoriously rough Northstar ProGRT downhill course under Marco Osborne, the new Cannondale Jekyll is proving to be a head turner with a complete geometry revamp, updated rear shock tune, 27.5-inch wheels, more travel, and unique carbon Lefty SuperMax PBR fork. Do the revisions add up to a better Jekyll? Find out in this review.
