"This new bike by Cannondale combines two worlds that usually have little to do with one another. It echoes elements of a mountain bike and interprets these for road use. As a result, it taps into a bigger target group of cyclists."
Roadies looking for a new thrill. MTB'ers or action-sports enthusiasts looking for a looser, more open definition of "road riding". Highly skilled riders looking for new limits to push. Highly unskilled riders looking to build skills without consequences.
