Cannondale has always been at the forefront of bicycle innovation and quality. Their designs are proven in professional competition so that every machine, whether for racing, commuting or cruising, on road or off, is the very best. Cannondale builds, tests and rebuilds, to make their bicycles and accessories better and better. And they never settle for "good enough." It's knowing it, verses guessing it and using the world's greatest athletes to prove it. It's Cannondale's relentless pursuit of perfection. Process of Perfection The Cannondale product-creation process starts and ends with the rider. In some cases it may be a world-class athlete capable of topping the world's most prestigious podiums. In others the rider is someone who just enjoys pedaling for that morning coffee and bagel. Nonetheless, every detail is scrutinized to make the best bicycle possible for that rider. Cannondale's goal is to exceed expectations, each and every time. Safety First Cannondale is obsessed with testing, too. They've invested in a multi-million-dollar Experimental Stress Analysis Laboratory facility based in Bedford, Pennsylvania, which is the largest of its kind in the industry. Here bicycles and components go through several important safety analyses including fatigue testing, maximum-load testing, function-evaluation testing and internal and external test riding. This rigorous testing ensures that besides the awesome ride, every Cannondale will provide a lifetime of enjoyment, too.
What this Means to You Cannondale's continual quest to produce the ultimate bicycles guarantees that when you swing your leg over your Cannondale you pedal down the road or trail on a cutting-edge machine that fits and rides like a champ, is built to last and is ready to take you everywhere you want to go.
