CAAD12

Lighter, stiffer and smoother riding than many carbon frames, CAAD12 is simply the most sophisticated, highest performing aluminum race bike ever made.

 

  • The Aluminum Experts

    No one does aluminum like Cannondale. Nothing is lighter, stiffer and smoother than CAAD12’s SmartForm C1 Premium Alloy 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 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.

Smartform C1 Premium Construction:

Our most premium alloy construction, flow-modelled design and high-strength 6069 aluminum for the ultimate in aluminum performance.

Braze-on disc mounts:

CAAD12's minimalist flat-mount disc mounts are not only ultra light, they're incredibly strong too. They're such an advantage that we patented the design!

Delta seat tube/BB30a:

For increased stiffness, the seat tube flares to a large oval-shaped section where it meets the wide BB30a bottom bracket shell.
