A partnership between cult apparel desingers G-Star and Cannondale has resulted in the creation of RAW CANNONDALE, a novel premium urban bicycle that not only incorporates quality and functionality but also displays clean lines, subtle design and innovation.

RAW CANNONDALE carries denim specialist G-Star’s distinctive 'rough, rudimentary and raw' design signature. The frame is finished in umbro-grey and displays a number of exclusive components to compliment G-Star’s heritage and identity as a leading fashion brand. From the limited edition Shimano Alfine 8 speed drive-train right through to colour coded components, mudguards, HeadShok front suspension technology and integrated lighting, attention to detail is evident throughout. Finishing the package are specially produced brown Vredestein tyres and the RAW denim top and seat tube cover. A further exclusive offering with every bike is a unique RAW CANNONDALE jacket.

G-Star will unveil RAW CANNONDALE to the fashion world during the BREAD & BUTTER BARCELONA tradeshow in January 08.

Limited to 500 units, the bike will be available in March at a price of £1,449.
