The CAAD12 from Cannondale does the unthinkable. Lighter, stiffer and smoother than most carbon-frame bikes, it's a sophisticated joy of alloy engineering, created to bring you the absolute top road racing bike performance. But… you knew that already; now it's time to try it.
With more than three decades of pioneering innovation under our belt, it's safe to say nobody does aluminum quite like Cannondale. Light, smooth and crafted with exquisite style, CAAD12's SmartForm C1 premium construction makes aluminum shine.
At under 1100 grams (for both rim brake and disc versions) CAAD12 performs at levels beyond what most premium carbon frames can offer.
CAAD12's 'SPEED SAVE' micro-suspension delivers a ride quality you'll fall in love with. This cutting-edge Cannondale technology reduces road shock and vibration, improving comfort, handling and control for a tour de force performance in any setting.
With its oversized BB30a bottom bracket junction, asymmetric chainstays and flared Delta seat tube, CAAD12 is the highest expression of road race riding.
A stiff, smooth-riding frame and refined geometry offer you better balance, smoother handling and maximum road racing performance.
