With a highly sophisticated frame and premium components, the Cannondale CAAD12 105 road bike promises a high-speed ride at an affordable price.
The Cannondale CAAD12 frame is a real work of art, and a true testament to just how advanced Cannondale’s Aluminium technology has become. The SmartFormed C1 alloy frame is flow-model designed, uses Cannondale’s proprietary BB30a extra-wide bottom backed shell, and is made from a high-grade 6069 alloy, giving it an incredible strength-to-weight ratio. At under 1100 grams for both disc and non-disc models, the CAAD12 goes head-to-head with some of the lightest carbon fibre road bike frames on the market.
What’s more, Cannondale have incorporated their SAVE micro-suspension technology into the CAAD12’s frame. SAVE is available in 4 variations, with the SPEED SAVE featured on the CAAD12 allows a small amount of vertical compliance in the frame/fork, not only for added comfort, but to simultaneously reduce rolling resistance by allowing the bike to smoothly track over poor road surfaces. The CAAD12 is built around Cannondale’s Elite Race geometry, giving the bike a race-ready ride position and razor-sharp handling to match.
The CAAD12 105 features a BallisTec full-carbon fork, with integrated SPEED SAVE technology that both enhances comfort and promotes smoother rolling at speed. The tapered steerer bestows the bike with responsive handling and a stiff front end during high-intensity sprinting efforts.
Cementing the bike’s high-speed capability is the full Shimano – 105 groupset, matched to Cannondale’s own Si chainset with semi-compact 52/36T chainrings and an 11-28T cassette. The resulting gear ratios are suitably wide for racing, with close gaps between gears to help you maintain your optimum cadence.
Braking too is taken care of by a set of Shimano 105 calipers, biting down on Mavic Aksium wheels that are shod with matching ‘Wheel-Tyre-System’ Mavic Yksion Elite 25c tyres. This bike delivers confidence-inspiring performance under acceleration, braking and through the apex of every corner.
From the frame to the components. The Cannondale CAAD12 105 road bike has race-winning credentials in its DNA.Cannondale CAAD12 review
