Cannondale CAAD Optimo Sora 2019 Road Bike

The 2019 Cannondale CAAD Optimo Sora is a performance orientated road bike that brings Cannondale’™s race tech and geometry to an affordable price point. Cannondale pioneered the use of aluminium in road bikes and their CAAD12 aluminium bikes regularly beat carbon road bikes in tests. The CAAD Optimo brings all of Cannondale’™s aluminium know how to a cheaper price point. Cannondale are calling the CAAD Optimo ‘˜gateway road bikes’™. They are designed to get you hooked on proper road bikes with elite race geometry that gives you a flat back for flat out speed and nimble handling. All of the CAAD Optimos come with a full carbon fibre fork and incorporate Cannondale’™s SAVE technology which introduces small flex zones in the frame to absorb shocks. The CAAD Optimo fame weighs in at just 1400g with the fork adding another 420g so you get a full frameset well under 2kg. With the CAAD Optimo Sora you are getting a top quality frame with decent quality equipment. Sora is considered by many to be the first ‘˜proper’™ Shimano road group set and gives you a double chain set at the front and 9 speeds at the back. This bike is perfect for Riders looking for a first road bike who want to go properly fast or serious racers wanting an affordable training bike that still handles like a race machine.
