Innovation AND Technology

SAVE PLUS

Smoother, more compliant SAVE features for rougher roads and longer days in the saddle. An updated version of the system that started it all, SAVE PLUS offers even more vertical compliance than SPEED SAVE. Perfect for carrying top speed over the cobbles of northern Europe or for smoothing out your next Gran Fondo.

Smartformed Alloy

Cannondale aluminum construction is focused on delivering the strongest, lightest, best handling frame possible.

Premium 6069 and 6061 alloy tube sets are highly manipulated to extract every ounce of performance. Double-pass welds provide stronger, smoother joints and eliminate the need for internal reinforcements or external welded-on gussets. Each frame is heat treated after welding to maximize the strength and hardness of the aluminum, increasing long-term durability.

These and other processes allow Cannondale to continue to offer a lifetime warranty on each of its alloy frames and forks.
