Cannondale CAAD12 Ultegra Road Bike 2018
Designed for pure unrelenting speed, the Cannondale CAAD12 Ultegra Road Bike boasts an aluminium construction with performances competitive to that of carbon frames. Weighing a mere 1098 grams, the CAAD12 frame is both lightweight and rigid, and is equipped with top performing components to complement the outstanding frame quality.
What makes this aluminium frame stand out from the rest is the SmartFormed Premium C1 alloy, a material with a greater strength to weight ratio, light and robust enough to withstand the demands of modern day riding. Competitive with carbon frames, this speed machine has been constructed with an oversized bottom bracket, asymmetric chainstays and a flared seat tube that resists flexing under higher loads, providing the perfect platform to transfer each power fuelled pedal stroke with great efficiency. This incredibly stiff frame manoeuvres corners and accelerates with responsive speed and agility.
Introducing their SPEED SAVE technology into their racing frames, Cannondale have constructed this bike with a "micro-suspension" enabling the tubing to provide the right amount of flex to dampen road buzz without affecting torsional or lateral stiffness. This design improves the ride quality of this bike, providing not only greater comfort but improved handling.
A racing geometry seats you upon the bike in the optimal position, ideal for flat-out speed, agile handling and responsive power, without compromising on ride quality or comfort.
With explosive accelerations and silky smooth gear transmissions, the 11-speed Shimano Ultegra groupset retains the lightweight build of the bike, offering a wide gearing range for efficient spinning and sprinting speed. Finished with Mavic Aksium wheels that work homogeneously with the Ultegra brake set to offer the best performance in handling and braking, this bike is prepared to tackle an array of terrains with great speed and confidence.
