Ride Without Limits.
With its low-standover, mountain-bike-inspired frame, its 700c knobby tires and 50mm suspension fork, the Althea can take you from pavement, to dirt, to gravel and back...with a smile on your face.
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
Big 35c multi-surface tires 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 aluminum expertise, Althea is super light but offers heavyweight performance, on-road or off.
