Cannondale Silk Path 500 '01

'The Mercedes of Hybrids' - American Consumer Digest mag

No Longer Available

Product Description

Perfectly named, the Silk Path is a lightweight Cannondale hybrid made even more deluxe with a suspension fork with 25mm travel - enough to smooth the path, discreet enough so no one is going to mistake it for a screaming downhill MTB. Eloquently named 'the Mercedes of hybrids' by the American Consumer Digest magazine.


  • Handbuilt butted aluminium frame

  • Shimano Rapidfire Plus shifters
  • Shimano gears
