Winner of Cycling Plus's prestigous Bike of the Year 2016, the Cannondale CAAD12 105 is a "truly brilliant bike" and "an intoxicating mix of handling, smoothness and rapidity".
New for 2015 Cannondale's CAAD12 takes aluminium frames to the next level. Cannondale have always been the standard bearers for quality aluminium frames and the CAAD12 keeps aluminium as a viable performance frame material in the current carbon era. CAAD12 frames are so advanced they can compete with Cannondale's standard carbon frames for both weight and stiffness, compliance isn't far behind either but because aluminium costs less to manufacture than carbon you end up with the same performance for less money. This means for the same budget you can have higher specification components on your frame and lower total bike weight than if you spent the same amount on a full carbon bike! CAAD12 uses the natural properties of aluminium to make you feel connected to the road but this doesn't mean no comfort, vertical compliance is up 50% on the old CAAD10 and multiple Speed SAVE micro suspension features throughout the bike ensure a smooth ride. If you are looking for a superlight frame with a connected and lively ride then CAAD12 will appeal.
CAAD12s feature Elite race geometry and are aimed at serious road racers and enthusiasts with a performance fit.
The Cannondale CAAD12 105 uses Shimano's legendary 105 drivetrain. Renowned for its excellent functionality, accurate shifting and low weight, Shimano 105 offers a perfect combination of performance and value. The CAAD12 105 uses a BB30 bottom bracket which is both lighter and stiffer than standard chainset axles. Cannondale provide the Si BB30 52/36 chainset which is coupled to an 11-28 11 speed rear cassette for a great range of gears with minimal jumps between ratios.
Mavic's Aksium wheels are fitted to the CAAD12 105 giving low weight, dependability and a stylish finish.
If you're looking for a bike with low weight, a responsive ride and race geometry then the Cannondale CAAD12 105 is probably the best you can get for the money.
IMPORTANT: This bicycle is supplied without pedals.
