INNOVATION AND TECHNOLOGY
Ai, our Asymmetrically Integrated Drivetrain System, allows us to create bikes with ultra-short chainstays for traction, handling and stiffness, without any of the usual compromises in clearance or limited chainring options. And as a nice bonus, it creates a stiffer, stronger rear wheel as well.
BALLISTEC CARBON FRAME
BallisTec is Cannondale's proprietary method of high-strength, high-stiffness carbon construction. It is the ideal blend of the most advanced materials in the world combined with the most advanced carbon engineering and design.
The results speak for themselves.
Lefty’s insane stiffness, unwavering smoothness and ultra-lightweight gives you the control and precision needed to nail any line in any terrain.

ZERO PIVOT SEATSTAYSZero Tollerance
The Zero-Pivot seatstays are engineered with a precise carbon lay-up that is designed to allow the stays to flex vertically while remaining extremely stiff laterally and torsionally.
This enhances suspension performance, saves weight and increases lateral stiffness versus bearing pivot rear stays.
We pride ourselves in making the most kick-ass, cutting edge frames in cycling. But you don’t race a frame, you race a complete bike. It seems like common sense, but we stand alone in the industry with our System Integration approach to bike design. Cannondale Si approach incorporates our cutting edge frame design with custom designed Cannondale forks, suspension and drivetrain components.
This unique complete-bike design and build approach ultimately delivers the best performing bikes possible.
