Cannondale CAAD Optimo 105 Road Bike 2019

Whether you are buying your first ever road bike or looking to upgrade to something a little more competitive and high-performing, the Cannondale CAAD Optimo 105 Road Bike is as good a place to start as any. The CAAD lineup (standing for Cannondale Advanced Aluminium Design) has become a byword for outstanding alloy framesets, delivering superb performance attributes at a price far below that of a more vaunted carbon counterpart.

This frameset provides a lightweight and impressively stiff platform for your efforts on the bike, ensuring that as much of your power is transferred into the road as possible. Cannondale's SAVE technology is also incorporated, in order to soak up vibrations from the road and ensure that you can ride in comfort no matter how long you are out on the road.

The Shimano 105 groupset, meanwhile, is a great addition at this price point. Considered as the first of Shimano's 'performance' groupsets, delivering extremely slick shifting and coming in at a remarkably respectable total weight. A compact chainset, when combined with the 11-30 cassette, provides you with a good depth of gears fit for getting you over even the toughest hills you encounter. The fact that 105 is 11-speed, meanwhile, means that the steps between those gears are smaller and more manageable - meaning you can maintain a smooth, regular cadence on all gradients.

The Maddux rims provide a tough and reliable set of wheels that you can rely on to keep you rolling, while the Formula hubs are smooth and frictionless. The Vittoria Zaffiro Pro Slick tyres are fast-rolling and provide plenty of grip and the traction you need for negotiating tricky corners or quick descents.


  • CAAD frameset is lightweight, sturdy and stiff
  • Carbon fork helps to further shave weight
  • 105 groupset provides the high quality, premium shifting of Shimano's workhorse groupset
  • SAVE frame technology provides a smooth and comfortable ride
