This Cannondale CAAD12 105 2018 is available with our legendary Podium Point free accessory scheme.
Winner of Cycling Plus's prestigious Bike of the Year 2016, the Cannondale CAAD12 105 is a "truly brilliant bike" and "an intoxicating mix of handling, smoothness and rapidity". The CAAD12 105 offers Shimano 105 drivetrain components, Mavic Aksium wheels and C3 contact points as upgrades over the Tiagra model.
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.
The Cannondale CAAD12 105 features Elite race geometry and are aimed at serious road racers and enthusiasts with a performance fit.
The Cannondale CAAD12 105's componentry is based around Shimano's 105 22 speed groupset which offers its renowned level of performance and dependability. The Cannondale CAAD12 105 is fitted with an 11-28 cassette and a semi compact 52-36 chainset to give you a great spread of gearing for the flat and climbs. The CAAD12 105 also uses a Cannondale Si BB30 chainset for lower weight and better power transfer.
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. Pedals for this bicycle can be selected for no cost using Podium Points™.
