Bigger wheels. Smaller Riders. Perfect match.

With two different frame styles, both with low standover height and geometry designed for women, the Tango and Tango SL let smaller riders experience the advantages of bigger wheels, without the compromises.

Tango is:

  • Comfortable and confidence-inspiring thanks to great standover clearance and dialed geometry.
  • Incredibly stiff and strong, especially with the Delta V style front triangle of the Tango SL.
  • The ladies way to roll big. Tango’s 29-inch wheels offer stable handling and a smooth ride.

Rider Profile:

For the female trail rider who wants the confidence and speed that comes from a 29’er that actually fits.

TECHNOLOGIES

  • Women’s 29 Geometry
    Women’s specific 29 geometry eliminates the compromises associated with smaller riders and bigger wheels. The Tango SL utilizes the one-and-only Delta V design for the lowest standover in the industry.
  • Two Tangos
    For 2014, there are two Tangos: The Tango SL is optimized for more aggressive riding with its oversized 1.5” headtube and super stiff Delta V style front end. Then, for those who want a less radical look, the new Tango features a curved top tube and 1-1/8” headtube.
  • Smooth Welds
    Trademark double-pass smooth welds showcase Cannondale’s aluminum frame mastery. Since we don’t patch fill with putty and paint, our process eliminates the stress-risers and weak points found on traditionally welded frames, enabling us to build lighter, stronger frames everywhere in the line.
  • SAVE Micro-Suspension
    Optimized seat stay and chain stay shaping provides vertical compliance for a more comfortable ride with no loss in lateral rigidity.
