Cannondale CAAD12 Disc Dura Ace Road Bike 2018
Sitting on top of the Cannondale CAAD12 podium range is the Cannondale CAAD12 Disc Dura Ace Road Bike. Its beautiful blend of lightweight, strong and durable SmartForm aluminium and race worthy componentry offers a fast and agile ride.
The CAAD12’s alloy frame is designed to take on carbon frames, giving them a run for their money. It’s lightweight, stiff, strong and durable - as well as giving a more comfortable ride than most without affecting any of the efficiency you need over long distances. The CAAD12 Disc SmartForm C1 Premium Construction allows the frame to come in at under 1190g, making it lighter than a vast variety of carbon frames, too.
SPEED SAVE Micro-Suspension is Cannondale’s approach to attacking the rigours of the road, reducing any bumps and vibrations for a greater ride quality and enhanced comfort. This is further embodied by the oversized BB30a bottom bracket which delivers optimised power transfer by keeping everything stiff where you apply the power.
Cannondale’s Elite Race Geometry adds to the high-performance pedigree the CAAD12 is known for. The geometry is for riders who want flat-out speed, responsive and nimble handling and comfort.
Shimano Dura Ace 9100, 11-speed has been recruited to enhance the efficiency, lightweight nature and super fast and precise gearing shifting on the CAAD12 Disc Dura Ace. Dura Ace stays strong when you’re sprinting out the saddle.
The wide range of gearing Dura Ace 9100, 11-speed offers is perfect for testing yourself up climbs and along the flats. Switching between gears is no bother, and with a gentle push of the lever you’re off and hitting greater speeds than ever before. This is further enhanced by the Cannondale HollowGram Si BB30a crankarms which are among the stiffest on the market.
Shimano’s Dura Ace Hydraulic Disc brakes further enhance efficiency on your ride when descending. Now, with the highly reliable and incredibly high-performing hydraulic disc brakes, you can speed down the mountains and maintain eye-watering speeds, safe in the knowledge you can stop when you need to.
Finished with Cannondale’s HollowGram Si Carbon Clincher Disc wheelset and Schwalbe Pro ONE Tubeless tyres, you can accelerate without worrying about your power transfer. These wheels remain stiff when you’re putting down the watts, whilst the tyres enhance grip and traction when cornering.
