For their collaboration with G-Star, Cannondale asked Curana to develop specific fenders and chainfenders. They needed to be stylish, customisable and minimalistic. A non existing solution was necessary, as all existing products did not fulfill these wishes.

Curana got the idea of using a sandwich composite material for both products. Difficult material to work with. But we succeeded in bending 3D shaped fenders, with a very flat profile, but nevertheless much stronger than the plastic fenders that were commonly used at that time.
And based on the origami technique, the most lightweight chainfender was born: made out of flat material, without tooling, Curana was able to produce a custom made chainfender. For a limited quantity of 500 pieces.

The result for Curana? The CLite technology was born and the brand Curana was suddenly hot for fashionistas!
