A quantum leap in aluminium performance

Lighter, stiffer and smoother than many elite carbon frames, the CAAD12 aluminium bike has been described by Cycling Plus magazine as a ‘revelation’ in road biking.  Superbly smooth, with crisp control and stability, it delivers high speeds; even on poor surfaces.

TECH FEATURES & BENEFITS

TECH FEATURES & BENEFITS

  • Light yet sturdy

    Weighing in at under 1100 grams, the CAAD12 is a serious competitor for many premium carbon frames. And its SmartForm C1 premium 6069 construction is unbelievably rigid and smooth to ride.

  • Smooth suspension

    CAAD12’s ‘SPEED SAVE’ micro-suspension delivers a ride quality that even competing carbon bikes can’t match. This cutting-edge technology reduces road shock and vibration and so improves rider comfort, handling and control.

  • Efficiently stiff

    Ensure the power you put into pedalling transfers efficiently to your sprint speed thanks to the CAAD12’s oversized bottom bracket junction, asymmetric chainstays and flared seat tube.

  • Precision handling

    With its stiff and smooth-riding frame and refined geometry, the CAAD12 lets you find your line – and stay on it.
