From introducing the cycling industry’s first bicycle trailer, the Bugger, and added successful cycling apparel and accessory lines while earning a strong reputation for innovation and quality. Cannondale introduced their first bicycle, a Touring model, in 1983. They raised the cycling world’s eyebrows by building their bicycles around handcrafted, oversized aluminium frames that were both lighter and more flex-resistant than the steel models that dominated the industry at the time. In the last 14 years, Cannondale won five Giro d’Italia Maglia Rosas and, most recently, they won the Giro d’Iltalia and the Vuelta a Espana in one single year!
