RACE-WINNING PEDIGREE

HEADS-UP RACE GEOMETRY

The Hourglass shape of the seat stays offers significant vertical compliance for comfort and control over rough surfaces, while remaining laterally rigid for solid power transfer and confident handling.

CANNONDALE ALUMINUM EXPERTISE

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

HOURGLASS SEAT STAYS

With taper-butted, shaped tubes joined by our trademark double pass smooth welds, the CAAD8 continues our tradition of aluminum mastery.
