A season riddled with even just a few podiums would have been noteworthy. Ending a season with a World Championship win, however, is the ultimate and highlights the incredible success of Cannondale Factory Racing.

In developing the M Series mountain bike wheels and components, we worked exclusively with Cannondale Factory Racing (CFR) to put our XC specific line of mountain bike products in extreme situations, and provide feedback. Outside the test lab in Ogden, Utah – the UCI Mountain Bike Cross Country World Cup is the proving ground. After claiming two national championships, one world cup win among many podiums, and a world championship title in the marathon category, we can confidently say our M525, M Series Bars, and Seatposts are proven with CFR.

Team riders Manuel Fumic, Henrique Avancini, Maxime Marrotte, Helen Grobert, and Hannah Grobert along with an equally talented staff, were critical in helping the development and validation of the M Series. With their mastery in all segments of cross-country mountain bike racing, we were able to utilize their elite level feedback to tune and bring real technological benefits to the latest M Series products. These benefits helped propel them to top-level finishes, all over the world.

“Honestly, sometimes it feels like we’re cheating. The new M525 is our go to wheelset and it allows us to run lighter tires at lower pressures for more comfort, traction, and yet, without worry of pinch-flatting. Consequently, we have more confidence than ever before and that has resulted in more podiums than ever before.” Daniel Hespeler – CFR Manager
