Description

CANNONDALE ALTHEA: RIDE WITHOUT LIMITS

THE ALTHEA IS THE DO-IT-ALL MACHINE AS CONFIDENT IN THE CUT AND THRUST OF URBAN COMMUTES AS ON TRANQUIL TOWPATHS, GRAVEL TRAILS AND JAUNTS THROUGH ROLLING PARKLAND.

Combining the enhanced visibility and control of an upright, flat-bar riding position, with a lightweight, SmartForm C2 alloy frame, the Althea is a bike without limits – fast and comfortable.

Comfort and control are ying and yang – one without the other is less than half of the whole. Both are central to the Althea proposition. The SAVE micro-suspension system built into the chassis combines with a slender seatpost to deflect bumps from even the most poorly surfaced roads.

The Althea is a bike with versatility built in. The suspension fork takes the judder from the most rutted paths without compromising speed on the tarmac. The tyres are wide, multi-surface treads that offer grip without slowing you down.

Integrated mudguard mounts make this a bike as suited to winter downpours as summer jaunts, while rack mounts allow the Althea to become a willing accomplice for two-wheeled adventures.

2017 ALTHEA:

An adventurous bike for adventurous spirits. From rugged urban commuting to dirt-road exploration, Althea is the perfect mix of sport and utility.

KEY ALTHEA FEATURES:

» MOUNTAIN-INSPIRED FRAME.

The women’s frame design matches the ruggedness of a mountain bike with the speed of 700c wheels. Super low standover means easy mounting and dismounting.

» RIDER-TAILORED GEOMETRY – ALTHEA

The women’s specific geometry of the Althea delivers the speed and agility of a city bike, with the stability and heads-up comfort of a mountain bike.

» COMFORT COMES STANDARD

SAVE Micro-Suspension seat stays and chain stays 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.

» MAXIMUM VERSATILITY

Big 35c multi-surface tyres are fast and grippy on dirt and pavement, and full rack and fender mounts let you customize your Althea for the type of riding you’re into.

» LIGHTER = MORE FUN

Thanks to Cannondale’s unmatched aluminium expertise, Althea is super light but offers heavyweight performance, on-road or off.

KEY TECHNOLOGIES:

SmartForm C2 Alloy Construction, Front Suspension w/50mm travel, tuned for lighter riders, SAVE Micro-Suspension, Rack and Fender Mounts, For Men, check out the Quick CX.

RIDER PROFILE

Fitness riders with a taste for adventure, multi-surface commuters, backroad explorers.

RIDER POSITION

Safety Notes.

Ensure the stem clamp bolts and handle bar clamp bolts are correctly tightened. An uneven handle bar clamp plate may cause damage to the handle bars.

  • When a bike is carbon or fitted with carbon parts a torque wrench should be used.

Do not confuse the left and right pedals – they are different.

The right pedal is fitted to the drive side (the side with the chain and gears). Both pedals will be clearly marked which side they are for. They are often stamped l or r at the end of the axle.

Do not force your pedals on! Always finger tighten first. Attempting to fit a pedal to the incorrect crank arm will void your warranty.


Before your first ride your new bike run through the gears to ensure they work correctly before you apply any force to the drive system.

If any miss or over shifting is experienced they will need checking by a qualified person as they may have been knock in transit.
