Cannondale Touring 2

Way back in 1983 Cannondale taught us that oversized aluminium tubing was a perfect material for producing a stable luggage-carrying touring bike.

This disc brake-equipped 2016 model assures you that building touring bikes is an art Cannondale continue to refine.

Its 73 degree seat tube/72 degree head tube geometry (on 58cm model) puts the Cannondale Touring 2 in the 'fast touring bike' category. That is: stable when loaded with panniers, sprightly when ridden bag-less.

  • 6061 butted aluminium tubing gives the frame exceptional lateral rigidity to ensure it won't flex under load.
  • Cannondale SAVE (Synapse Active Vibration Elimination) chainstays and seatstays help the bike float over rough stuff and track cleanly through corners
  • The taller head tube allows a more upright position for taking in the view and helps make the Cannondale Touring 2 comfortable on the long rides this bike will inspire you to enjoy.
  • The Cannondale Touring 2 is fitted with a near-complete Shimano Sora groupset for consistent performance.
  • The Shimano Sora 3x9 shifters and mechs deliver the benefits of STI - flawless shifts via an inward nudge of the brake levers whether your hands are on the drops or the lever hoods.
  • The Shimano Sora 50/39/30 chainset and 11-30 cassette gives you a good range for near-any riding whether you're climbing steep hills or sprinting on the flat.
  • Schwalbe Marathon Plus Tyresare the most puncture-resistant treads we have tried and tested.
  • Shimano Sora disc brakes introduce a new level of low maintenance reliability to touring bikes.

The Benefits of Disc Brakes
Proven for over a decade on mountain bikes and better quality hybrids, the benefits of disc brakes are now becoming more and more recognised on road bikes and touring bikes.

  • Moving the brakes from the mud and rain-attracting wheel rims to the relatively clean hubs makes for an improvement in the brakes’ all-weather all-conditions performance.
  • Disc brake pads are much harder so they last much longer.
  • That's why disc brakes tend to need far less maintenance compared with rim brakes - they don't require such frequent adjustment to compensate for brake pad wear.
  • The wheel rims should also last much longer now that they are no longer being worn down by the brake pads.
  • On touring bikes like this, moving the brakes away from the rims maximises clearance for mud and mudguards.
