Cannondale Sponsors Bahati Pro Team

Published December 21, 2009

BETHEL, CT (BRAIN)—Cannondale Bicycles will be the official bike sponsor of the 2010 Bahati Foundation Pro Cycling Team.

The newly formed team, led by 2008 National Pro Criterium Champion and eight-time national champion Rahsaan Bahati, will be outfitted with the 2010 Cannondale SuperSix, the newest model in the Cannondale road race line.

“We’re proud to support the Bahati Foundation Pro Cycling Team and support the ideals and mission of its partner organization the Bahati Foundation,” said Jeff McGuane, president of Cycling Sports Group North America. “Cycling Sports Group is committed to providing the most innovative cycling products in the world, and we are proud to sponsor a team that is dedicated to changing the world, both on and off the bike.”

The 2010 Cannondale SuperSix boasts ultimate pedaling efficiency, superior comfort and refined handling. It is the lightest, stiffest carbon road frame in the line of bicycles. New carbon-fabrication methods shave the complete frame weight to 900 grams in 56 cm, 150 grams lighter than earlier SuperSix models.

"From the beginning we recognized Cannondale as one of our key partners due to their dedication to excellence and performance,” said Rashaan Bahati. “With the SuperSix, Cannondale has developed a bike that is incredibly responsive, light, stylish and comfortable on all day rides. Sprinting on the SuperSix I can feel all my power delivered with no wasted energy, allowing me to consistently perform at the highest levels. It is truly the best bike I have ever competed on and I look forward to a dominant season riding a SuperSix."

The Bahati Foundation Pro Cycling Team will also be riding the Cannondale Si SL Hollowgram crank. At 570grams, the Hollowgram remains the lightest production crankset in the industry.
