Cannondale Quick NEO Gives Riders a Boost

Wilton, Conn. – May 10, 2017 – Cannondale, a premium brand of Dorel Industries, Inc. (TSX: DII.B, DII.A), has introduced the Quick NEO, a comfortable and stylish pedal-assist e-bike designed for those with active lifestyles. Getting around town is now more efficient and fun on the Quick NEO. Whether commuting to work, cruising with family, or riding for fitness, Quick NEO offers riders the confidence and freedom to easily get where they need to go.

“We wanted to create a fitness bike for those who lead active lifestyles, but may not be traditional cyclists,” said Burton Avery, Cannondale product manager for recreational bicycles. “The Quick NEO is perfect for new riders looking for a bike that makes riding less intimidating, more comfortable, and fun.”

With three riding assist modes (eco, normal, and high), Quick NEO’s Shimano STEPS E6000 Drive Unit offers a smooth, natural-feeling assist that delivers power when you need it for a bike that’s a blast to ride. The all-weather long-range lithium-ion battery provides a powerful 418Wh output, a range of up to 70 miles, and charges from zero to full in four hours.

The Quick NEO reflects Cannondale DNA through and through. The bike’s lightweight aluminum frame takes a cue from Cannondale’s other aluminum elite race bikes such as CAAD12 and CAAD Optimo. SAVE Micro-Suspension, engineered flex in the frame, delivers a smooth ride and great traction on uneven terrain. Front suspension absorbs bumps and potholes, making the Quick NEO ideal for hopping onto bike paths or even hard packed dirt roads. Hydraulic disc brakes offer improved stopping power and control, especially when riding in wet weather.

The Quick NEO joins Cannondale’s family of e-bikes which include the Moterra mountain bike, the Kinneto touring bike, and the Contro-E commuter. The Quick NEO is available in a men’s and women’s model and retails for $2,799.99 USD.
