Cannondale Bad Boy 1
Slicing through traffic, avoiding obstacles along the way, and zigzagging across the mazes that only an urban jungle is known to have can be a real test of wit and reflexes. But with the Bad Boy 1 giving you the ride of a lifetime, cutting lanes and getting to your destination safely, biking in the city just got a much-needed boost.
Everything about the Bad Boy is designed for traffic-slaying performance. It has an aggressive styling plus a couple of safety features that make for an ingenious solution in the otherwise chaotic and highly unpredictable nature of urban landscapes.
Forming the frame is a SmartForm C1 alloy giving the Bad Boy OPI its characteristic rigidity that can withstand uneven terrain in a concrete jungle. It’s got an Urban Armor bumper protecting the frame as well as the rider in pretty much the same way as a bull bar protects a 4X4 off-roader against obstacles in its way. Integrated into the fork is the Lefty LightPipe that comes with a SuperNova LED light strip, immensely improving the visibility of the two-wheeled wonder even in smoggy conditions of the city. The same light strip gives the Bad Boy an elegant look in the dark, more like a silhouette that masks the beauty within. The seatpost also comes with an integrated LED light at the rear, working harmoniously with the LED strip up front at the fork.
The drivetrain is courtesy of Shimano Alfine, making sure you get the most efficient mechanism to employ the power of your legs. The brakes are worthy of mention, too, with the Magura MT2 providing stopping power that you won’t see in any other system.
Every component put into the Bad Boy 1 is engineered for supreme city riding performance. It’s the best pair of wheels you’ll have to conquer traffic.
