Cannondale Aluminum crafting and CAAD10 DNA in a class of its own

SAVE Stays

Optimized chain stay and seat stay shaping provides lateral rigidity while providing vertical compliance for bump absorption and comfort with no loss in power transfer.

HeadsUp Race Geometry

The CAAD8 shares the proven race geometry of its more expensive brethren but with a slightly taller head tube (+1.5 mm) for a more relaxed riding position.

Smooth Welds

A true smooth weld, rather than the sand, putty, and paint smooth welds found on other bikes, Cannondale's trademark double-pass smooth weld technology eliminates the stress-risers and weak points found on traditionally welded frames, enabling us to build lighter, stronger frames.

              Only have had a few weeks but when shopping I couldn't find any reviews on this bike so I wanted to put my 2 cents in. Love the look. Lightweight. Its a beginner or budget friendly bike. So its not that the components are bad they just arent as good as the high end stuff. Bike flies down the road. A little trouble with some of the gear shifting but it hasn't had its first tuneup yet. Very happy with the purchase. I will post again after I put some miles on it.
