The CANNONDALE mantra is: never settle in our quest to create the perfect ride.
Widely regarded as the bike industry’s leading innovator with game-changing technologies, CANNONDALE and its handcrafted bicycles continue to be recognized by organizations from both inside and outside the industry including:
Many of the ideas that keep CANNONDALE products on the cutting edge come from the sponsored athletes on the company’s professional racing teams. The feedback provided by the company’s riders, combined with CANNONDALE ‘s best-in-class production processes, fuel a near constant stream of both new innovations and improvements to existing products.
With a laser focus on a rider-first mentality, they push their employees, their dealers and the bike industry. These refinements aren’t limited to the company’s competitive road racing and mountain bikes, however; the insights gained through racing, coupled with CANNONDALE ‘s quest for constant improvement, have also benefited the company’s wide array of lightweight recreational bikes as well as its lines of state-of-the-art cycling apparel and parts & accessories.
Although never forgetting their heritage, CANNONDALE and their dealers have come a long way since their birth in a crowded loft above a pickle factory in 1971.
