In a year full of the unexpected, we bring you the ultimate show-stopper – a collaboration bridging cultural icons and transcending convention.

Unlike anything seen in road cycling to date, Cannondale, Rapha and Palace Skateboards applied their joint innovative forces to create a unique and disruptive look for the EF Pro Cycling team to sport during 2020 Giro d’Italia.

From Cannondale comes an entirely custom fleet of individually painted framesets: ranging from the world’s fastest bike, SystemSix, to the lightweight SuperSix EVO and the wind-cheating SuperSlice. Utilizing Cannondale’s newly formed global creative hub and paint facility our team worked closely with their counterparts at Rapha and Palace to create a frame and fork package that is brought to life using the striking visuals from the race team’s special edition kit and helmets.

“When I think of Cannondale, I just think of my  best mate’s brother we all looked up to’s bike!  And how much I wanted one.”

– Lev Tanju, Palace Skateboards, founder

Palace Skateboards is a brand that knows how to work with other brands. With successful partnerships with the likes of Reebok, Adidas, Ralph Lauren, Evisu and Juventus football team to name a few, bikes seem like the unnatural choice. A perfect fit.  

These unique framesets were produced exclusively for the eight-rider roster at the Giro d’Italia. But you’ll want to stay tuned as we’ve got something in store to offer you a way to get your hands on one of these collaboration bikes. Join us for an unforgettable ride as the race unfolds in Italy.
