This is for the core - the local heroes, the crit assassins, the working-man racers with chiseled legs and dreams of glory, because they know that when it comes to pure performance for the buck, nothing can touch CAAD12. Lighter, stiffer and smoother than most carbon frames, it’s not just the finest alloy racing bike ever made, it's the only choice for those who know.

 

TECH FEATURES & BENEFITS

TECH FEATURES & BENEFITS

  • The Aluminum Experts

    After more than three decades of pioneering innovation, no one does aluminum like Cannondale. Nothing is lighter, stiffer and smoother than CAAD12's SmartForm C1 Premium Construction.

  • Light Makes Right

    At under 1100 grams (for both rim brake and disc versions) CAAD12 wipes the tarmac with a lot of premium carbon frames.

  • Smooth like OverSized Aluminum

    CAAD12's SPEED SAVE Micro-Suspension delivers a ride quality that even competing carbon bikes can't match. 

  • Explosively Stiff

    With its oversized BB30a bottom bracket junction, asymmetric chainstays and flared Delta seattube, CAAD12 is a sprinter's dream.

  • Point and Shoot Handling

    With its stiff and smooth-riding frame and Elite Race geometry, CAAD12 handles like a slot car.
