In the title compound, 4′-propen-1-ylbicyclohexane-4-carbonitrile, C16H25N, both cyclohexane rings adopt chair conformations. The dihedral angle between the rings is 105.90(5)°. The normals to the least-squares mean planes through the propenyl chain and the adjacent cyclohexane ring make an angle of 97.95(15)°. Molecules of the compound are packed along the c axis.
