In the absence of any really groundbreaking product launches from the bike industry (most of it was done at Eurobike it seems) Cannondale have today told us they have invented the next phase in the evolution of suspension. It’s an electronic suspension control system.
Mark was just passing the media Centre TV studio in the heart of the Interbike exhibition hall when they started the ‘Big Announcement’. Flanked by two pretty ladies who just seemed to smile a lot and contribute er.. nothing really, we were run through a demonstration of Simon.
We caught the launch on video, so rather than try and explain it we’ll let the Cannondale engineers do that for us. Apologies for a) the dodgy video audio and b) for Mark’s ‘wandering’ lens when he started to lose interest in the gentlemen speakers.
Chipps has wandered over to the Cannondale stand and will have closer pictures and more details in a full report very soon.
