Bigger. Better.

System Integration

29’ers love Lefty. It’s true. The Lefty’s incredible stiffness, light weight and smoothness are even more apparent with the big 29” wheels. When combined with the superlight Si OPI stem/steerer, and the Hollowgram SL BB30 Cannondale’s System Integration saves hundreds of grams over competitors’ offerings.

SPEED SAVE Rolls Faster

The SPEED SAVE rear stays form a ride-tuned micro suspension system that is engineered not simply to add comfort but to help the bike roll faster. SPEED SAVE delivers improved rolling speed, better acceleration and dramatically faster cornering. The SAVE seatpost adds over 20mm of comfort enhancing flex to the system.

Continuous Carbon

On the Flash Carbon 29’er, continuous strands of high-modulus stiffening fibers run along the outer edges of all the tubes from head tube to rear droputs. This network of fibers connects the key parts of the frame to increase lateral rigidity and responsiveness, while minimizing weight.
