Cannondale Touring Ultimate Road Bike 2017
Get out and explore the roads with the Cannondale Touring Ultimate Road Bike 2017. Extremely sturdy yet still highly manoeuvrable when fully encumbered with panniers and gear, this touring bike combines top-end specifications with a hardy yet lightweight frame that pays tribute to Cannondale's first bike; the ST-500 Touring.
The fast and nimble touring geometry makes the SmartFormed 6061 Alloy frame one of the most responsive and durable on the market and the Cannondale Touring full alloy for makes riding a joy over smooth tarmac or rougher gravel.
For the groupset Cannondale have not cut any corners, opting for a compact Shimano Ultegra 6800 11-speed groupset that is more than capable of excelling off the beaten track. Shimano's RS785 hydraulic disc brakes on the front and rear further compound this great performance, ensuring confidence inspiring stopping-power.
Schwalbe's MARATHON PLUS SmartGuard tyres on the front and rear ensure grip over a wide range of surfaces, plus their puncture resistance helps to reduce the threat of any deflating situations.
Overall this is a great choice for any rider who wants a bike that has enough stamina to take on a cross-continental but is still ideal for the daily commute.
Fast Touring Geometry: The Touring bikes' geometry strikes the perfect balance between long/stable and short/nimble, and between upright comfort and forward efficiency, making it equally enjoyable under full load, or no load at all.
Fast Touring Spec: To capitalise on the true all-around versatility of these bikes, they are equipped with road components and compact 50/34 cranks mated to low range cassettes, as well as flared bars for extra stability. The right mix of fast and forgiving.
The Right Fit - 650B or 700C: Large volume 40c tyres and 700c wheels can make fitting smaller riders a challenge, so to deliver the best riding experience for all, the Touring bikes use 650b wheels for size 48 and 51 cm, and 700c for the larger sizes.
Optimised 6061 Alloy Construction: Cannondale’s legendary double-pass smooth welds join optimally shaped taper-butted tubes for a great combination of svelte light weight, stiffness and durability.
Save Stays: The shape and butting of the Touring's seat stays and chain stays give them exceptional lateral and torsional rigidity, but also allows a touch of vertical flex, which helps the bike float over rough stuff and track cleanly through corners.
Disc Brake: If you're loaded with gear, brakes become even more crucial, so the whole Touring range is equipped with powerful, controllable disc brakes.
