Specialized Bicycle Components didn’t set out to make a museum piece, but the company’s original StumpJumper (the first mass-produced mountain bike) is now permanently parked inside the Smithsonian Institution. The 1981 introduction of the StumpJumper established Specialized as a top-seller in bike shops, where it ranks with other big manufacturers, such as Trek and Giant for high-end cycles. The company also makes road bikes, hybrid bikes, BMX bikes, and children’s bikes. In addition to cycles, Specialized offers branded apparel and shoes, bags, eyewear, helmets, and bike parts and accessories (such as crank sets, saddles, and tires). We are proud to offer Specialized Bicycles as our primary bicycle brand and one of the best bike companies in the world!
INNOVATE OR DIE!
Widely regarded as one of the bike industry’s leading innovator with game-changing technologies, Cannondale and its handcrafted bicycles continue to be recognized by organizations from both inside and outside the industry.
Many of the ideas that keep Cannondale products on the cutting edge come from the sponsored athletes on the company’s professional racing teams. The feedback provided by the company’s riders, combined with Cannondale’s best-in-class production processes, fuel a near constant stream of both new innovations and improvements to existing products.
With a laser focus on a rider-first mentality, we push our employees, our dealers and the bike industry. These refinements aren’t limited to the company’s competitive road racing and mountain bikes, however; the insights gained through racing, coupled with Cannondale’s quest for constant improvement, have also benefited the company’s wide array of lightweight recreational bikes as well as its lines of state-of-the-art cycling apparel and parts & accessories.
This is summed up in our mantra to: never settle in our quest to create the perfect ride.
