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.

“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.
The bikes will be on display in each Stela McCartney flagship store from November 17 onwards; The SuperSix EVO SE by Myfawnwy will be at the New York store, the SystemSix by Tom Tosseyn in Tokyo, and the SuperSix EVO by Ed Curtis in London and Shanghai.
