Cannondale CAAD12 Disc 105 Road Bike 2018
Agile, fast and nimble, Cannondale have designed their CAAD12 Disc 105 Road Bike to boast performances near equal to that of carbon bikes. Constructed with top of the line technology to forge a frame that is ultralight, combined with the reliability of hydraulic disc brakes and Shimano 105 gearing, this bike is an ideal step up for those wanting to venture further into the spectrum of road riding.
Boasting a great strength to weight ratio, the CAAD12 frame uses SmartFormed premium C1 alloy, offering a low weight aluminium frame of 1094 grams, competitive with carbon. Ensuring each rider input is rewarded with agile speed and rigid power outputs, the optimised tube shaping features an oversized bottom bracket, asymmetric chainstays and a flared seat tube that supports high loaded pedal strokes with minimal flex.
Inheriting technology from their Synapse model, Cannondale have introduced the SPEED SAVE design to their racing frame. Described as "micro-suspension", this technology allows the forks and chainstays to provide just enough flex to dampen road vibrations without affecting the lateral or torsional stiffness. This unique tubing increases the ride quality of the bike and is set to tackle an array of road surfaces with unrelenting comfort.
With a pure racing pedigree, the geometry places you upon this frame in the optimal position, ideal for pounding out all your power at flat-out speed, and manoeuvring with agile handling.
Meeting the demands of modern day riding, this CAAD12 has been specced with the reliability of hydraulic disc brakes, providing confidence boosting braking through high-speed descents and wet weather. With greater modulation, this braking system offers precision control and improved handling through an array of riding conditions.
Finished with a Shimano 105 groupset, this bike hosts explosive acceleration and silky smooth gear transmissions, providing agile speed and efficient power ideal for tackling long sprints and steep challenges.
