If your idea of the ideal adventure starts where the pavement ends, the Touring SE is your rig. Stable and confident when loaded with gear, nimble and fun when rolling free, it’s built for long-haul bikepacking, dirt road touring and remote fire-road exploring. Get out there and get after it!
Strikes the perfect balance between upright comfort and forward efficiency, making it enjoyable with a full-load, or no load at all.
Touring SE is ready for serious action with burly 42c knobbies on wide, durable rims, hill-crawling low range gearing, and wide flared handlebars for comfort on-road and control off-road.
Smaller frame sizes use 650b wheels, while larger frames are spec'd with 700c wheels, for an optimal fit and handling regardless of height.
Who says touring bikes have to be heavy? The resolute stiffness of our SmartForm Aluminum Construction keeps everything flex-and-drama-free when carrying loads, at weights that will set you free.
Fun Fact: The first bike Cannondale ever produced - the bike that kickstarted the aluminum revolution - was a Touring bike.
