On Monday, Cannondale announced the Treadwell Neo, a pedal-assist version of the brand’s popular Treadwell hybrid/fitness bike.

The Treadwell Neo is equipped with the Mahle ebikemotion X35 lightweight 250W hub-drive system, weighing just 7.7 pounds and offering three levels of assist. The bike’s downtube conceals a 250Wh battery that can be easily charged via a port in the frame.

“The system is controlled via a single illuminated button conveniently located on the toptube, which lets you select the assist level, turn the power on and off, activate the lights, and see the battery charge at a glance. It also keeps the handlebars free of wires and clutter,” Cannondale stated in a release.

Component spec includes a motorcycle-inspired saddle and handlebars, Tektro hydraulic disc brakes, a nine-speed drivetrain, kickstand, cushy Maxxis DTR-1 650b x 47c tires, and Cannondale’s own wheel sensor and Intellimount stem.

“The sensor seamlessly pairs with a free Cannondale app, giving (riders) access to speed, distance, calories burned, and even carbon emissions saved. A secure mount on the stem allows riders to turn their smartphone into a real-time dashboard display. The Cannondale app also tracks maintenance needs and sends reminders when it’s time for a service, automatically registers the bike with Cannondale, and more,” Cannondale stated.

The premium EQ version of the Treadwell NEO also includes fenders, front and rear lights from Hermans, and front rack.
