This thing is fast. SAVE Micro-Suspension in the frame, fork and seatpost keeps you protected from shocks and vibration yet connected to the feel of the ride.

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 its first bicycle, a Touring model, in 1983. They raised the cycling world’s eyebrows by building our 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 won the Giro d’Iltalia and the Vuelta a Espana in one single year!Bike SizingChoosing the bike size depends on the type of bike, your height, your riding style, and your preference.
