HeadsUp Race Geometry
The CAAD8 shares the proven race geometry of its more expensive brethren but with a slightly taller head tube (+1.5 mm) for a more relaxed riding position.
Optimized chain stay and seat stay shaping provides lateral rigidity while providing vertical compliance for bump absorption and comfort with no loss in power transfer.
A true smooth weld, rather than the sand, putty, and paint smooth welds found on other bikes, Cannondale's trademark double-pass smooth weld technology eliminates the stress-risers and weak points found on traditionally welded frames, enabling us to build lighter, stronger frames.
