Heads-Up Race Geometry

The CAAD8 shares the proven race geometry of its more expensive brethren but with a slightly taller headtube for a more relaxed riding position.

Cannondale Aluminum Expertise

Double-pass smooth welds, taper-butted tubes and the refined tube-shapes of the CAAD8 showcase our more than 20 years of aluminum frame-building experience.

CAAD10 DNA

CAAD8 shares many of the performance features, like the asymmetric chain stays, horizontally ovalized top tube, and SAVE vibration-reducing stays, of the ultra-high performance CAAD10.
