  • HeadShok Fatty DL50 suspension fork provides 50mm of pothole-damping suspension; suspension can be locked out when it's not needed
  • Shimano Alivio shifters, Acera and Deore derailleurs guide the chain through 27 smooth-shifting gear combinations to spin easily on any terrain you may encounter
  • Hybrid design blends the speed of a road bike with the sturdy, heads-up ride of a mountain-bike inspired frame; low stand-over height makes mounts and dismounts easy
  • Frame also uses Cannondale Synapse Active Vibration Elimination (S.A.V.E.) technology to damp road vibration for a smoother ride quality
  • Cannondale Helix 6 hydraulic disc brakes supply quick, powerful speed management in all conditions, even rain
  • Kenda Happy Medium tires have a fast-rolling center with aggressive outside lugs for enhanced cornering traction
  • Platform pedals accommodate everyday shoes—just hop on and go
  • Specs on the Cannondale Althea 1 women's bike are subject to change


All bicycles sold at REI include a free warranty tune-up. New bikes go through a normal break-in period, after which readjustment is important for longevity and performance. Bring your new bike in to your local REI for its free tune-up within 20 hours of use or 6 months from purchase, whichever comes first. Contact your nearest REI bike shop to schedule this important service.
