Cannondale CAAD12 Dura Ace Road Bike 2019
If you're looking for an aluminium race bike that matches or exceeds the performance of many carbon offerings, look no further than the Cannondale CAAD12 Dura-Ace Road Bike. Experts in aluminium, Cannondale have engineered the CAAD12 using their premium SmartForm C1 alloy that is the lightest, smoothest and stiffest available. The frame and fork together weigh just 1428 grams in a size 54cm, and SAVE suspension in the fork and rear triangle soak up road buzz to smooth out the harshest roads, providing a supreme ride quality.
Designed for explosive power, this bike is perfect for the crit circuit, and the oversized BB30a bottom bracket junction, asymmetric chainstays and flared Delta seat tubes increase stiffness, so all the power you push through the pedals is translated into speed. Elite Race geometry puts you in an aggressive yet comfortable position.
Built up with Shimano's top-of-the-line mechanical Dura-Ace groupset, shifting is smooth, fast and reliable. The mid-compact 52/36 crankset and 11-30 11-speed cassette give you the gears to get you over steep hills, and you won't spin out when smashing the descents. The Ultegra brakes offer modulated and powerful stopping for a confidence-inspiring ride.
This bike includes a Power2Max NG Eco power meter as standard, so if you're looking to train with power the setup is ready for you to activate it if you so wish, for an additional one-off cost. Power readings are taken from the crank spider for accurate dual-sided measurement.
Fulcrum Racing 400 wheels are strong and stiff, engaging almost instantly and, paired with Vittoria Rubino Pro Speed 25mm tyres, roll smooth and fast.
This is not only a bike that offers an incredible ride quality, it has the aesthetics to match, with a smart colourway based on the bikes of the CNCPT development racing team in Los Angeles.
