BETHEL, CT (BRAIN)—Cycling Sports Group (CSG) has appointed Peter Denk as its director of technology for the R&D team.

As director of technology, Denk will lead all four CSG bicycle brands (Cannondale, GT, Schwinn and Mongoose) to create innovative, high-performance products. Denk has recently collaborated with Cannondale to create the Cannondale Flash hardtail—one of the lightest and most efficient carbon hardtails available today.

“We are excited to have Peter join our team on a permanent basis,” said Chris Peck, vice president of research and development for CSG. “His work on the Flash revolutionized how the industry thought about carbon fiber frame construction, and his knowledge is a true asset to our brand. One of the goals for the CSG R&D team is to lead the industry in advanced composite technology.”

“I am very proud to join the CSG team,” Denk said. “They have a long history of innovative product development, and I am inspired by the strength of our team. I’m thrilled by the opportunities ahead to create industry-changing designs.”

Denk has more than 18 years of bike industry experience with suspension and carbon fiber frame design, manufacturing and testing.
