Are these Cannondale & Palace EF Education team bikes the maddest in the peloton?

New finishes are intended to represent the achievements of women in the sport; do they do it for you?

Cannondale has released a whole bunch of pictures of the bikes that’ll be ridden by EF Education-TIBCO-SVB and EF Education-EasyPost teams in the Tour de France and the Tour de France Femmes, and they’re set to be the most eye-catching finishes in the two races.

“The bold design of each Cannondale bike is intentional and represents the bold thinking and achievements of women in the sport,” says Cannondale. “As long as they’ve been given the opportunity, women have readily sought the speed, sweat, and stakes of professional cycling – but they have rarely, if ever, been met with the same ample exposure, sponsorships, or rewards of the men’s field.”
The Rapha and Palace Skateboards special edition Cannondale SuperSix Evo frame will soon be available to buy, although the on-sale date and retail price have yet to be confirmed.
