Cannondale CERV bike is anything but ordinary. This concept bike is literally adjusting itself as you ride through different terrains. Forkless, chainless and adjustable, pretty radical concept in a sexy body, thank you to Priority Designs company that has managed to deliver stunning visualization of the advanced concept made by Cannondale.
The adjustable headset of CERV bike moves both fore-and-aft and up-and-down. The essential design lies in achieving those possibilities without altering the seat-to-crank height, thus putting the rider in an optimal position based on the terrain.
This system puts the rider in an optimal position based on the terrain. The headset translates forward and down for a clean, low-drag position when descending. When climbing, it moves up and back, creating a more upright position for maximum leverage on the crank. Doing all this with a traditional fork in place wasn’t going to cut it, so a single-sided swing arm was proposed. Designing a forkless front-end has its own challenges, integrating it into a multi-axis adjustable system is another degree of difficulty altogether.
