2011 Cannondale Flash Carbon 26

Weighing in at a crazy-light 950 grams, the Flash Carbon frame is the world’s lightest mountain frame AND has the best stiffness to weight ratio of any other frame in the industry. BallisTec carbon makes it more durable than most aluminum bikes, and also has more vertical compliance than the softest titanium frame. It is the best frame there is. Period.

One of the neat technologies developed on the Flash Carbon is the Continuous Carbon Construction. This technology has spread to the new SuperX cyclocross and CAAD10 road bikes as well, providing lightweight stiffness. SAVE technology in the rear triangle makes the Flash especially comfortable and improves traction/control.
