Cannondale, the United States bicycle company that integrates high technology design with an attitude towards the ultimate care of the Planet and its sustainability, has introduced the Cannondale G-Star Raw. This bicycle is a limited edition cycle and has been created in collaboration with the designer denim brand G-Star. Cannondale throughout its advertising promotes the role that bicycles play in the restoration of the world environment, and in the G-Star Raw, they have created a unique example of a bicycle designed to express its premium status image for the rider who inspires zero emissions mobility.
The Cannondale G-Star Raw is an urban commuter or leisure style bicycle and hence its association with G-Star Raw urban sportswear. Cannondale has created a unique example of high technology cycling in the G-Star Raw. The cycle has an 8-speed shifter with Shimano Alfine hydraulic disc brakes, and the gear change is an internal Shimano Alfine hub design. The front suspension is oil/air with an ability to lock it rigid if the rider desires. One of the interesting high tech features is its built-in 3 Watt LED front stemlight that comes with a charger.
Nearly 100% of the the G-Star Raw's bicycle components are unique G-Star design, and this is evident in its hand crafted smooth welded G-Star aluminium frame, and the G-Star Edition Shimano Alfine shifters, brakes, crankset and hubs. The seat and handle grips are made by Brooks and are made of leather. The seat post, handlebars, and stem are all G-Star special edition as well. Even the tires, Vredestein Moiree 26x1.6 are G-Star Edition, and the rims are Rigida Xendo Disc G-Star Edition.
The Cannondale G-Star Raw comes with Cannondale's "Endless Ride" lifetime warranty and a special premium no scratch paint finish.
