Cannondale Releases New Bad Boy Urban Bike
Cannondale, a premium brand of Dorel Industries, Inc. (TSX: DII.B, DII.A), today introduced the completely redesigned Bad Boy, a forward thinking urban commuter bike. With integrated front and rear lights and a clean design, Bad Boy is the ultimate in urban cycling.
“Bad Boy was the original lean and mean urban bike and has always been at the forefront of commuter bikes,” said Burton Avery, Urban Product Manager at Cannondale. “It’s a bike known for its iconic look. Therefore, we honored its minimal, stripped down style, while taking integration and design to the next level.”
All Bad Boy models have a new one-piece Lefty rigid fork. The Bad Boy 1 and 2 feature the Lightpipe Lefty, an integrated and micro-USB rechargeable SuperNova LED light stripe for increased visibility. Taking it one step further, the 1 and 2 models also have lights in the seatpost for added rearward visibility.
In keeping with the Bad Boy’s minimalism, the frame’s headtube and downtube have been 3D-forged from a single block of aluminum for a seamlessly sleek look.
The all-new Bad Boy’s 650b wheels, when paired with big tires, provide added comfort and puncture protection when blasting over cobbles or down pot-hole ridden streets, and added grip for when the weather gets rough.
Additionally, all Bad Boy models feature disc brakes for optimal control, internal cable routing, black-on-black reflective graphical elements, and an integrated and durable rubber strip along the top tube to protect the frame.
