The one. The only. The 10.

The legendary CAAD10 needs no introduction. Lighter, stiffer and smoother than many of its carbon competitors, it is simply the world’s finest aluminum road racing machine.

The CAAD10 IS:

  • The most sophisticated, highest performance aluminum race bike ever made.
  • Lighter, stiffer, and smoother riding than many elite carbon frames.
  • A lively, communicative ride-feel that’s pure Cannondale.
  • Rider profile:

    Aspiring racers, fast club riders and anyone else looking for a high-performance alternative to carbon.

    TECHNOLOGIES

  • Elite Race Geometry
    Unlike much of the competition at these price points, the CAAD10 is a thoroughbred racer. Its geometry is virtually identical to our SuperSix EVO for razor-sharp cornering and aggressive race positioning.
  • SmartFormed 6069 Alloy Construction
    With a frame that weights just 1150 grams, SmartFormed construction used in the CAAD10 relies on the most advanced aluminum manufacturing in the world. A complex mix of hydroforming, mechanical shaping, taper-butting, double-pass smooth welding and heat treating produce a frame that is both lighter and stronger.
  • SPEED SAVE Stays
    The flattened shape and internal butting of the CAAD10’s seat stays and chain stays allow them to flex vertically, but stay stiff laterally and torsionally. This lets the rear wheel track the ground, improving speed, cornering, grip and comfort.
  • SPEED SAVE Fork
    This 360 gram fork features an 1-1/8”to 1-1/4” tapered steerer for the best balance of weight and stiffness, and offset dropouts, which allow for more fork angle and compliance without affecting handling. The SPEED SAVE fork is tuned to work with the SPEED SAVE stays as a micro-suspension system.
  • Delta Seat Tube
    The 27.2 compatible seat tube is laterally ovalized at the BB for great lateral stiffness.
