There’s a formula we use to help our sponsored riders win races and take championship titles: System Integration. We shave weight, improve stiffness, and use fewer moving parts than our competitors.
ROAD SI HEADSET:
No more unsightly cups. Less maintenance. Improved steering. We’ve reduced weight and complexity with bearings that press directly into the head tube.
ROAD AND MOUNTAIN :
BB30/HOLLOWGRAM COMBO: Our oversized BB shell standard is recognized by others in the industry as being the best of breed because it significantly reduces weight without a penalty in stiffness. Add to that the Hollowgram Si SL crankset, and the combo is the lightest and stiffest production system in the world.
With proven integration and 130 mm of travel, Cannondale can lay claim to the lightest long-travel forks in the industry. Lefty technology is stiffer and lighter than traditional forks. With BB30/Hollowgram technology, the explosive power transfer that’s long been a staple of our road offerings can now propel you down the trail.
LEFTY FORGINGS REDUCE PARTS & WEIGHT:
The use of integration via three-dimensional forgings on the Lefty have reduced parts by half and resulted in stiffer, stronger, more integrated suspension system.
LEFTY AXLE/HUB INTEGRATION:
We have shaved 70 grams from the weight of the hub and spindle assembly by switching to a 3D forging that combines two parts into one. Stiffness and strength are improved as well.
A one-piece stem-and-steerer combination uses fewer parts and reduces weight – all while boosting stiffness and steering precision.
