Visibility, awareness and confidence built in. With Cannondale SmartSense’s intelligent system of lights and rear-facing radar, it’s never been easier to ride smart.

Ride Brilliantly

On every ride, Cannondale SmartSense has your back. Just snap the power pack into the cradle, and roll out, knowing its intelligent system of lights and rear-facing radar is making you more visible, and more aware of what’s around you. SmartSense is cycling tech that’s easy to live with.

Ride Aware.

Like a vigilant ride-partner, the integrated Garmin Varia radar keeps a watchful eye on the road behind, alerting you to the relative speed and proximity of approaching vehicles so that you can relax and enjoy the road ahead.

See and Be Seen.

Ride assured. The smart daytime-running lights automatically adjust to ambient light conditions and react to radar inputs to enhance your visibility to other road traffic. They even act as brake lights when slowing – keeping you confident and calm from sun-up to sun-down.

Connect to the road like never before. Customize SmartSense in the Cannondale App.
