These machines are more than just tools to get from point A to point B — they’re freedom machines. Tailormade for the demands of the modern metropolis, they let you flow through the grind, bypass the gridlock and embrace the city on your own terms. Up for anything, these bikes are fast and fun everywhere from pavement to dirt to potholed city streets. Their mountain bike-inspired frames, front suspension, big multi-surface tyres and disc brakes deliver sure-footed performance anywhere you choose to ride. One day dirt. Road the next. The Quick CX and Althea are built to thrive wherever your adventure leads.
Their upright and balanced riding position is perfectly suited to multi-surface riding and high-performance commuting, and the smallest size Althea comes with smaller diameter 650 wheels to ensure the best fit and handling for smaller riders. 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 seatstays and chainstays 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 38c multi-surface tyres are fast and grippy on dirt and pavement, and full rack and mudguard mounts let you customize your machine to suit your needs. Thanks to Cannondale’s unmatched aluminium expertise, Quick CX and Althea are super light but offer heavyweight performance, on-road or off.
