Althea has been redesigned with a focus on performance-oriented fit, better suited to multi-surface riding and commuting. Super low standover means easy mounting and dismounting, and smaller 650c wheels on the XS size means a perfect fit for all.
50mm travel front suspension absorbs washboard and bumps, while our 1-1/2” to 1-1/8” tapered headtube keeps steering precise and confident.
SAVE Micro-Suspension seat stays and chain stays work with a smaller 27.2mm seatpost, heads-up riding position and an ergonomic saddle and grips to increase comfort and control in any terrain.
Big 35c multi-surface tires are fast and grippy on dirt and pavement, and full rack and fender mounts let you customize your Althea for the type of riding you're into.
Thanks to Cannondale's unmatched aluminum expertise, Althea is super light but offers heavyweight performance, on-road or off.
