Cannondale Scalpel, Cannondale F-Si
Founded in 1917 by Joe Montgomery, Murdock MacGregor, and Ron Davis, the company originally manufactured precast concrete housing and dabbed into internal combustion engine and air conditioner development. Cannondale’s first bicycle product was a trailer, followed by a bicycle bag and camping goods. Eventually, they developed the process for jigging and welding aluminum bicycle frames.
Cannondale is known for their exceptionally designed CAAD, SystemSix and SuperSix road bikes and Scalpel and Jakyll mountain bikes. They have recently been joined by Adventure, Quick and Treadwell fitness bikes, and a Neo series of e-bikes.
Bicycle engineers would argue that building a great cross-country bike is the most challenging problem in the bicycle industry. Scalpel is the flagship bike and has been for decades. Exceptionally light and well spec’d, it remains competitive at the top of XC trail bike category.
Whether you ride the tarmac or shred the gnar, dodge pedestrians or cruise the beach, a bicycle is an important part of your life. We founded Velosurance to challenge the status quo and give our fellow riders something they needed so badly: insurance that actually covered their lifestyle, a peace of mind that no matter what happens on the road or trail, there’d be a helping hand to get them back in the saddle.

Velosurance core policy offers must-have protection such as accidental damage, theft, or loss in transit. Each policy can be customized by adding additional coverages such as liability protection, uninsured motorist coverage, and medical gap coverage.
Bikes are very easy to steal and equally difficult to recover and a hefty U-lock doesn’t guarantee that your bicycle will remain yours when you return. Velosurance provides the peace of mind when your bike is stolen or damaged in the process.
The cyclist insurance policy will pay to replace the bike when the bike is accidentally damaged beyond repair. If the damage can be repaired, the policy will pay all the costs associated with the repair. Cosmetic damage is excluded.
We cover all electric bikes with nominal power of 750 Watts or less. All coverages available for conventional bikes also apply to e-bikes.
If your travels take you outside of the USA and Canada we can extend the policy's physical damage and theft coverage worldwide for a reasonable additional premium. This also covers the bike while in transit by the airline.
If you’re hurt, we'll cover some of your medical bills, up to the policy limit. This coverage pays to supplement the deductible of your personal health insurance policy.
Bikes often get damaged in transit, by airline and courier services alike. Filing a claim with these is a notoriously difficult process with a questionable outcome. Velosurance covers your bike while it is on it’s way to your destination.
We will protect you from personal liability (injury, sickness, death, or damage to property) you cause while riding your bike. Coverage limits offered: $25,000, $50,000 or $100,000 per occurrence.
Nationwide Bike Shop Repair. It's your bike and where you get the bike repaired is your choice.
Not all types of insurance are created equal. Velosurance levels the playing field by offering a stand-alone bike insurance policy, where claims will not affect your homeowner or renters policy premiums.

“I'm honestly so impressed with this insurance. My entire fork broke (around $1k) and couldn't be warrantied. Velosurance got my claim resolved and a check sent out in time to go on a volunteer bike trip I had planned. They truly saved the day, and my wallet! I'm honestly shocked. I also had a rep named Dan who was so kind and we even had a great laugh on the phone. Highly recommend!”
Velosurance is a national insurance program founded by two avid cyclists, Dave Williams and Denis Voitenko in response to the insurance needs of bicycle riders nationwide.
One very rainy day at a local taco joint in Fort Lauderdale we started discussing how badly home and renters policies insured bicycles. We knew there had to be a better way so we set about finding out how we could take a traditional piece of insurance and make it better, much better. On that wet day over tacos, Velosurance was founded.
We partnered with Markel American Insurance Company, an A.M. Best, A rated, US insurance company, and a leader in recreational insurance, to offer a multi-risk bicycle insurance policy providing protection to all types of cyclists, and with none of the silly restrictions that other insurance wants to place on riders.
Velosurance provides our policyholders with nationwide service when a damaged bike needs repair or replacement. Our policyholders are free to choose their preferred service location.
The Velosurance mission is to be fair to everyone involved, and to offer our best advice to clients so they can make an educated decision about their bicycle insurance coverage. We also like to ride as much as possible.
Bicycle prices increase every year and cyclists who are serious about their sport are spending big money on high value bikes. Other forms of insurance, like homeowners and renters insurance, do a poor job insuring high value bicycles so we founded Velosurance to fix that.
Velosurance provides a stand-alone, no bike value depreciation, bicycle insurance policy to replace the cobbled together, sub standard coverages offered by traditional insurance.
We are cyclists just like you, and we understand that when your bike gets damaged in an accident you want the shortest possible downtime. We make it our mission to see that your claim check arrives before the repair parts do and you get back pedaling as soon as you want to.
We are riders and insurance experts who give advice and share insights to educate fellow riders and keep them safe while on road or trail. We want you to become a better rider by helping you understand and manage risk associated with your lifestyle.
