Cannondale Quick CX 4 (2018) Review

Cannondale is an American bicycle brand and one of the biggest names in the bicycle industry. With a rich history and wide range of bicycles for various terrains they have a bicycle for every rider. The 2018 range of bicycles from Cannondale was launched recently and their famous Quick series of hybrids have come out with a bang. We got the opportunity to test ride the Cannondale Quick CX 4 (2018) and here is what we thought.

Cannondale Quick CX 4 (2018) Frame, Fit and Comfort

The Cannondale Quick CX 4 is built on an aluminium alloy frame. Cannondale are masters of aluminium frame design, the lightweight, MTB-inspired Aluminium Alloy frame offers a comfortable upright riding position. Cannondale’s Smartform Alloy tech helps create refined tubing, precisely controlled tube shapes and strong welds to create the much-needed stiffness.

The Suntour NEX front suspension fork provides adequate relief from uneven surfaces. A switch on the fork crown allows you to lock the fork out for more efficient cycling on smooth roads.

Cannondale Quick CX 4 (2018) Design

Cannondale have always been known for neat looking design and graphics. The bicycle I test rode came in the standard Cannondale green colour with black graphics. The smooth welds on the tubes and internal cable routing make the bicycle look neat. The gloss paint job was top notch.

Cannondale Quick CX 4 (2018) Gearing

The Quick CX 4 is fitted with a MTB style drivetrain. The Shimano Altus/Acera combination is mid-level in the Shimano MTB groupset hierarchy. During the test ride these gears worked smoothly and the transmissions fell in place without any lag. The 24-Speed combination gave enough depth for both acceleration and climbs. The shifters were responsive and easy to use.

Cannondale Quick CX 4 (2018) Brakes and Steering

The Stopping power on the CX 4 is taken care off by Tektro’s M285 Hydraulic Disc brakes. The braking power is smooth and linear and never feels like an on/off motion as the power comes on smoothly and steadily the harder you pull. Take this cross hybrid on flat off road trails and these brakes will be more than sufficient to keep the speed in control.

Cannondale’s C3 alloy handlebar was the perfect blend of aggressiveness and comfort with just a slight raise from the middle. The padded grips gave good support to the palms, which absorb some amount of vibration.

Cannondale Quick CX 4 (2018) Tires

Panracer’s Comet Hardpack 700x38c tires are the perfect all-rounder tires on the Quick 4 CX. Whether you are riding on gravel or commuting on flat roads these 700C tires had well placed treads to keep you balanced with enough traction. The wheelset was light in weight and helped roll faster.

The Stock Saddle was also ergonomically designed with enough padding to keep the rider soreness free on bumpy roads and flat trails. The overall ride quality was both fast and comfortable.

The Quick CX 4 excels on flat trails and light single tracks. It devours smooth dirt or multi-use recreational paths. But as a city commuter on the street, it sometimes feels bigger but that makes the ride comfortable. The adventurous CX is best suited for riders seeking a little of the rough. Whether it’s a bicycle for all-weather commuting or simply finding some off-road shortcuts through the park the Cannondale Quick CX 4 (2018) is the perfect choice of bicycle.
