History Of Cannondale Bicycles
Cannondale was founded in 1971 but unlike other manufacturers, this company's initial product line had nothing to do with bicycles, but rather it was focused on backpacks for camping.
Yet, within a decade, it had entered the bicycle industry and started focusing almost exclusively on lightweight materials.
After initially focusing on road bicycles, the company began getting heavily involved in mountain bikes. Yet in the 1990's the company made an ill-fated venture into the motorsports industry which pushed the company to seek bankruptcy protection in 2003.
The company is currently part of Dorel Industries, which bought the company in 2008. It now boasts a revamped production line, and a global reach that easily makes it one of the most visible brands in the market today.
Cannondale's signature technology is Cannondale Advanced Aluminum Design (CAAD). The latest incarnation of this technology is CAAD9, which was first introduced in 2007.
Another interesting technological development is SAVE (Synapse Active Vibration Elimination), which works to reduce vibrations by changing the fundamental design of the standard bicycle.
Both these technological innovations have allowed Cannondale to really stand out from the rest of the crowd.
