Cross. Functional.

A supremely versatile bike, the CAADX cyclocross bikes demonstrate their racing heritage with CAAD10 and SuperX inspired tube shapes, SAVE stays and race-bred geometry while rack and fender mounts and a slightly more upright position expand its usability.


  • Race on Sunday, commute on Monday. Race performance meets functional versatility.
  • Light, stiff and comfortable - Cannondale’s aluminum expertise at work.
  • Precise and stable handling, with a comfortable riding position thanks to its Relaxed Race geometry.
  • Equipped with disc brakes on some models for all-weather power and control.

Rider Profile

With its mix of high performance and durability, CAADX is perfect for cyclocross racers, fast commuters, winter training, or general rough-road riding.


  • Relaxed Race Geometry
    The CAADX has a slightly taller head tube and slightly slacker head tube angle than the SuperX, providing a more upright position and stable handling.
  • SAVE Stays
    The flattened shape and refined butting of the stays offer significant vertical compliance for comfort and control over rough surfaces, while remaining laterally rigid for solid power transfer and confident handling.
  • Smooth Welds
    A true smooth weld, rather than the sand, putty, and paint “smooth welds” of our competition. 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.
  • Taper-Butted Tubes
    Like the legendary CAAD frames of the past, the CAADX features 6061 aluminum which has been taper-butted and heat-treated to a T6 hardness. The smooth transitions provided by taper-butting eliminate the internal stress risers of traditionally-butted frames, again allowing a lighter, stronger frame.
  • Full Rear Rack/Fender Mount and Front Fender Mounts
    Rack and fender compatibilty makes the CAADX ready for duty as a fast commuter or winter training rig.
  • Disk brake equipped
    The top model comes with disk brakes for all-weather power and control.
