Simply Fast.

Stable Geometry

Unlike the nervous, twitchy handling of some aero frames, the Slice’s geometry is designed to provide stable and confidence inspiring handling while in the aero position, allowing you to relax and focus on your ride.

AERO SAVE Micro-Suspension System

An elegant combination of directional tube shaping and sophisticated carbon lay-up allows the rear chain stays and seat stays to deflect together vertically, so the bike absorbs the shock, not you. Stay aero longer and come off the bike faster.

Maintenance-friendly design

Standard road brakes, a normal stem/steerer design, straightforward cable routing and vertical rear dropouts all give up a bit of pure aero advantage to the superbike designs, but potentially save hours of pre-race set-up stress.

        Comments about cannondale SLICE 5 105:

        I could immediately feel the difference in this bike versus my CAAD10 road bike. Stiff but not uncomfortable by any means. Brakes are quick and firm. Aero position is slightly cramped on these bars, but that could just be me. Tested this on a flat long road; next day went on a slightly hilly long stretch; next day went on a long climb, and each time this bike performed beautifully. Quick, agile, responsive and pretty light given that it is entry-level. Can't wait to use this at an olympic tri this weekend.
