Aluminium doesn’t get much better than this. The Cannondale CAAD12 Disc Dura Ace road bike is quite possibly the greatest aluminium-framed road bike ever created.
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 bracket 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 Dura Ace Disc features a disc-specific 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.
This top-of-the-range CAAD12 comes complete with Shimano’s chart-topping Dura Ace groupset, with 2x11 speed gearing that is light to the touch, yet gives a responsive feel and incredibly quick & smooth gear changes. Using Cannondale’s own SI HollowGram chainset and semi-compact 52/36T one-piece chainrings (two chainrings, one piece of metal), the CAAD12 Disc Dura Ace is geared for speed.
Matching Dura Ace hydraulic disc brakes give this bike impeccable manners under braking. The flat-mount callipers are designed specifically for road bikes, and use a 160mm rotor up front for ample power, with a 140mm rotor at the rear for sublime control. Being hydraulic, the feedback you get through the brake levers is second-to-none, and unlike rim brakes, the braking performance doesn’t suffer a dramatic loss of power when riding in the rain.
Finally, the CAAD12 Disc Dura Ace rolls on a set of Cannondale’s own HollowGram Si disc-specific wheels, with an aero-friendly deep rim profile, and lightweight straight-pull spokes. Wearing the review-topping Schwalbe One clincher tyres.
