Improving on the best must have been difficult, but this Cannondale CAAD12 Ultegra Road Bike 2016 proves that anything is possible for Cannondale, and anything is possible for you on this fantastic bike. Lightweight, stiff but comfortable, the Flow moulded frame and carbon fibre fork tick all the boxes, whilst the 11 speed Shimano Ultegra components fit perfectly with the supreme performance orientated nature of this bike.
Cannondale CAAD12 Ultegra Road Bike 2016
Cannondale CAAD12 Ultegra Road Bike 2016
This Cannondale CAAD12 Ultegra Road Bike 2016 has big shoes to fill. The CAAD10 bike that it is superseding was one of the best selling bikes we have had, especially amongst staff! The CAAD 10 was the go to bike for people look for the performance and weight of carbon fibre, but at a more affordable price and with higher durability. Cannondale have shaken this up though with the introduction of the Cannondale CAAD12 for 2016. Not happy to sit on their laurels, they have taken even more weight off the CAAD10 whilst simultaneously increasing stiffness and ride quality to make this truly exciting.
A lot of this development comes from Cannondale's new Flow Modelling process. This has allowed Cannondale to shave off some serious weight off. This in itself would give you a tangible performance increase, but Cannondale have not stopped there with vertical compliance being increased for better ride quality without compromising the stiffness that Cannondale has become known for and has set previous bikes apart as superb race machines.
Another area that has improved the on bike experience is the updated Speed Save micro-suspension system that offers you 50% more compliance where you need to be comfortable enough to clock up some serious miles. Add into this the full carbon fibre fork and you can see how serious Cannondale have been about making this useably fast.
All of the above features mean swinging a leg over this bike will make you want to go fast, so you will be delighted that Cannondale have built it to their elite race geometry to help you out even further in your quest for speed. This means it almost mimics the SuperSix EVO Hi-MOD with a low front end and short wheelbase to give you an aggressive position with superb handling abilities.
Completing this bike is Shimano's excellent Ultegra 6800 eleven speed components that are paired with Cannondale's own HollowGram Si crankset (which is one of the lightest on the market). The Mavic Aksium wheels are a perfect starting set thanks to their durability, lightweight and responsive feel.
Undeniably then, this bike is perfect for those who enjoy going fast, be that an aspiring racer, competitive club rider or anyone looking to push their boundaries.
