Product description

Combining the very best in alloy frame technology with hydraulic disc brakes the Cannondale CAAD12 Disc 105 is a road race bike that is lighter, stiffer and smoother than many carbon bikes.

SmartFormed C1 aluminium alloy disc frame offers the very best performance that alloy can offer. With a frame weight of under 1,200 grams the CAAD12 is lighter than many carbon bikes. Add to this the SPEED SAVE Micro-Suspension, that absorbs the bumps on the road, and you have a bike that offers a ride quality that even many carbon bikes can’t match.

Sharing the same Elite Race Geometry as the carbon Super Six Evo the CAAD12 is a true racer. With its oversized bottom bracket junction asymmetric chainstays and flared Delta seatube keeping things stiff, for immediate power transfer and the one-piece BallisTec carbon fork up front offering pinpoint steering, the CAAD12 is a sprinters dream.

The Shimano hydraulic disc brakes combine power and modulation to offer confident all weather speed control in all situations. The 105 11 speed drivetrain is combined with a Cannondale Si semi compact chainset so you can really put the power down.

Surprisingly comfortable race bike.

The CAAD 12 wasn't the first bike on my list but I'm so glad I changed my mind. First of all it's as light as many disc equipped carbon bikes costing several hundred pounds more it's also possibly the most comfortable bike I have ever ridden including many carbon framed sportive style bikes from other manufacturers. I've been checking the tyre's constantly making sure they're not flat as the save system on this bike smoothes out rough roads fantastically. The 28mm tyres I'd planned to equip this bike with can now wait till the good Lugano tyre's are worn out. The disc's are also great once bedded in and install confidence plus the larger brake hoods are comfortable to hold. The bar tape is very nice and the saddle is also very comfortable. So far I'm very happy with the bike with all the contract areas not needing changed and I'll possibly be looking for similar bar tape in future as it's one of the nicest I've used. This is all personal preference of course but to me it feels like a bike I've built myself. So if your looking for a comfortable, light, disc equipped race bike don't hesitate. I'm 170cm tall and ordered a 52cm.

Perfect!

I bought this beauty for riding occasionally when I wanna enjoy my time! And it's perfect for riding. I'm 170cm tall, size 50 what I bought. It's perfect fitting for me! Unbelievable light! Very easy to handle it, so comfortably to sitting on it.

Great bike at a great price

Bought this bike with 20% off and was attracted to the bike because of the fantastic reviews the caad12 received. Winning bike of the year and the endless good YouTube reviews all praising the bike. I bought this version because of the colour scheme cost and the fact it has disc brakes. A part of me thought this bike may have received great marketing and would turn out to be a average bike. I can confirm I was not disapointed at all this bike is a great machine and really is all the bike the expects say in the reviews and more. It is so comfortable and you really forget its a alloy frame, super light as well. I have fitted some 700 x 30c tyres on the bike and fitted a fabric line shallow saddle which has made this already very comfortable bike, ridiculously comfortable. if you decide to stamp on the peddles you won't be disappointed ever this bike flys and makes you feel fast along with the aggressive geometry you can get in to a real aero position if you want a blast out. As you can tell I am very happy with this bike and consider it a perfect road bike in all weather conditions. The frame is great the fork is great Disc brakes are great 105 are great the saddle is the only part that I didn't like but for the price I really can not complain at all. Highly recommend this bike, Cannondale have done a great job!

Great bike, shame about modern geometery

I was looking for an of-the-peg machine that was suitable for an ex-racer that I could use as a winter trainer. Disc brakes were a must have. The CAAD 12 was billed as a racing bike and so I pre-ordered the 105 Disc variety in September 2015 and eagerly waited for it to be delivered for nearly 7 months. The Tredz sizing guide suggested that at 5'10" and 30.5" inside leg, I would suit a large frame (56cm). I have been riding since the late 70's and knew full well that this would be way too big. Looking at the geometery I thought even the small might suit, but the top tube would have been a little on short side. So I opted for the medium. My first ride on it proved that this was indeed a great bike, but I also quickly realised that I was not going to be able to live with a bike that placed me in such a high position - I may now be in my fifties, but think Chris Boardman on his Lotus bike as I still ride with a very flat back, my riding buddies, some much younger than me think I'm a freak. However, this is how we were taught to position ourselves on our bikes and the modern off-the-peg, upright geometery simply doesn't allow this and doesn't work for me. Sadly, I have only ridden this bike 4 or 5 times and it is now up for sale and I shall probably do what I have always previously done and go custom build. So the bad stuff is more about me than the bike. The good bits? It is lovely bike, very smooth and with phenominal stopping performance, even in the wet. asthetically I hate disc brakes, but there is no denying the stopping power. The frame is excellently finished as you'd expect from Cannondale and you can feel it wanting to go the moment you press on the pedals. However, the 105 brake levers/gear changers sometimes feel a bit vague and an upgrade in this area would be well worthwhile. As for the customer service, I cannot fault Tredz. The delivery was delayed somewhat by the manufacturer but they kept me informed the whole way through the process of where we were at.
