Cannondale has been at the forefront of bicycle innovation and quality for decades, and their bikes have been proven year after year in professional races around the globe. Every ‘Dale, whether made for racing, commuting or cruising, on road or off, has been meticulously designed, tested and built so that you enjoy a great ride, every ride.
When Cannondale started bicycle production in a small facility in Connecticut in 1983, they were the first company to mass produce aluminum road bikes. Yet, they quickly gained a reputation for delivering an exceptional ride, new and cutting-edge technologies, lighter weights and a cool oversize-tube look that was unique for the time.
Since those early days, the company has continued to push the technological envelope. In the knobby-tire realm, Cannondale engineers created their now-famous mono-blade Lefty shock fork that reduces parts, shaves weight and increases stiffness compared to traditional forks. They're famous for a super-smooth ride and laser-sharp cornering.
