Cannondale has collaborated with British Fashion Designer, Stella McCartney, to produce 18 hand-painted frames, none of which you can have. The aim of the collaboration was to “For us, it’s a new way to reach new audiences while keeping our current audiences surprised with re-imagining the fastest bikes in the world for a limited collection moment” – Massimo Alpian, Global Media Relations Manager at Cannondale/CSG.

The Cannondale x Stella McCartney collection comprises hand-painted limited-edition versions of the SystemSix, SuperSix EVO, and EVO CX bikes.

“As a lifelong cyclist and someone who rides their bicycle every day to work, I could not be more excited for my new shared journey with Cannondale. The bikes we have created embody our common values and vision – blending beauty and desirability with a sense of responsibility to the next generation”. – Stella McCartney.

None of these are actually hand-painted by Stella herself. She hand-picked designs from three emerging artists that worked on her latest A/W ’21 collection; Ed Curtis from London, Myfawnwy (Maisie Broome) from New York, and Tom Tosseyn from Antwerp.

    So what did they “reimagine”? Those are custom paint jobs. Throw a few thousand at black magic or velocolour and you can get great results as well. At least auction them for a charity or something.
