More Carbon from Cannondale: Rush and Taurine

Cannondale will follow up the System 6 with new carbon frames for their mountain bikes in 2007. And these aren't your father's Ravens' either. Cannondale has taken their Rush marathon bike and molded a carbon frame that yields a frame weight 300 grams lighter than it's aluminum predecessor. The Lefty carbon fork incoporates an integrated one-piece stem and steerer tube for further weight reduction and increased stiffness. Team bikes will sport 2-piece Hollowgram SI cranks, SRAM X.O. components, and Mavic CrossMax SLR wheels.

A first for Cannondale is their carbon hardtail, the Taurine. The super sized tubes and special hour-glass-shaped headtube make this 1250 gram (claimed) frame a super stiff contender in the ever crowded carbon hardtail arena.
