Caad stands for Cannondale advanced aluminium design. Cannondale has spent 40-years perfecting aluminium frames the Caad13 certainly demonstrates all those years of hard work entirely. Aluminium is the 13th element on the periodic table so its fate that the Caad13 is a masterpiece of engineering and design and the most impressive aluminium bike on the market today.Until the Caad13 came along the Caad12 was considered the best alloy bike in the world! The Caad13 is faster, more comfortable, capable and beautiful. The Caad13 competes head to head with a carbon road bike on every level but the price! The Frame is made from Smart form C1 alloy construction. Which means no expense is spared to ensure every ounce of unnecessary material is removed while creating a frame strong enough to meet Cannondale’s lifetime warranty.An all-new tube shapes focus on aerodynamics. Delivering the weight and stiffness of a round tube but with up to 30% less drag. Consideration has been paid to smaller speed details such as two locations for a water bottle cage on the down tube. The Caad range is known for intuitive handling, the Caad13 improves on this sharing the same geometry and rider position to the Supersix Evo. Giving quicker, precise handling and a high-performance riding position.Comfort has been improved upon, a new configuration of SAVE micro-suspension technology in the tubes, drop rear seat stay, knot 27 seat post and integrated seat binder work together to absorb the impact of bumps in the road.
