Cannondales mission is to transform e-cycling by bringing an element of high-performance to this category.
Innovative electronics, unique suspension and a lightweight, nimble frame deliver the perfect riding experience; simple, natural and fun. This is the Cannondale E-Series.
To achieve their vision of making e-bikes a true mobility alternative, Cannondale partnered with BOSCH to develop a revolutionary e-bike drive system which is intuitive, powerful and easy to use. Combined with the continuous and fully automatic NuVinci H|Sync hub gear is the perfect match.
Better performance through system integration.
Cannondale reduces weight, improves the rigidity and also uses fewer moving parts than the competition. The Bosch battery fits in the integrated carrier and provides a sleek, stylish look.
HEADSHOK Fatty OPI DL50 Fork
OPI stands for One Piece Integration. The fork is made of a single aluminum part - for super smooth and precise steering. The built-in, typical linear bearings are special "ball"bearings with exceptional, because axial (rather than radial), needle rotation. In contrast to the plain bearings of the competition here a very low-friction guidance of the linear spring movement is achieved. That means that the fork does not have to overcome static friction during superhard brakes, shocks and heavy steering effort. The wheel can hit the ground always free and guarantees maximum control.
Modern alloy construction
Smooth welds, smooth transitions in butted and hydroformed 6061 - tubes are distinguished for the E-Series. While others conceal their welds, Cannondale created real smooth welds. This double welds are the trademark of Cannondale. They eliminate stress peaks, make the framework easier and at the same time more stable.
The new, mid-mounted engine provides a optimal weight, maximum efficiency and an industry-leading torque. Sensors measure the request and the speed 200x per second to ensure that the correct power is available in all Situations. The total weight of the entire system is just 6.5 kg. Pulling and power delivery are instantly and extremely harmonious. Overall, the drive-system offers maximum torque. According to the EPAC standard the motor drive supports up to 25 km/h. After reaching 25 km/h, or during a braking maneuver, the system immediately interrupts the power - a real plus in safety. The compact, robust, and quiet drive unit is water resistant and maintenance-free.
Bosch has created a highly advanced on-board computer, which has its own remote control. The system has a USB port with charging function and a "Walk Assistance". The rider has the option of deciding between four different modes which are Eco: Higher level of autonomy, maximum mileage and minimum engine support Tour: Medium level of autonomy and set as standard mode, Sport: Supported acceleration level and Speed Maximum engine support.
The Powerpack battery from Bosch comes with a capacity of 500 Wh. With the compact Bosch eBike Charger it can easily be charged within 2.5 hours. All Bosch batteries have the Bosch
Management System (BMS), which protects them from overloading, undervoltage in operation,
overheating and short circuit.
The entire E-Series range of Cannondale is equipped with disc brakes to provide a higher brake capacity, because E-bikes go faster and carry heavier loads than normal city bikes. The Magura MT2 Disc brake provides reliable braking performance in all weather conditions, when
you need it.
Frame technology and integrated cable management
The framework brings a tube design, inspired by a stealth fighter, to a new level. With the result of low weight and high efficiency. Due to the novel, fully internal cable management in context of the E-Series 2, the cables are protected against shocks and the whole bike gets a very clean
The integrated rack on E-Series 2 is a true masterpiece. It provides a wealth of features, yet the slimmest and most simple battery holder on the market. It has a series of transport options and an integrated tail light. Cannondale welds the rack directly to the frame. That saves weight, provides good handling and safe riding in all situations.
Integrated rear wheel lock and SI stand
Easy to use rear wheel lock in a matching color for which you use the same key as for the battery lock. So simple, clean and safe, if the bike is unattended. The rear-mounted integrated SI stand is stable, integrated visually and functionally. Simply a unique detail.
