Cannondale CAAD12 Ultegra Black 2019 Road Bike

The 2019 Cannondale CAAD12 Ultegra is a stealthy looking road bike for pure racers who want precision handling and maximum speed at a reasonable price. Lighter, stiffer and smoother riding than many carbon frames, the Cannondale CAAD12 is the most sophisticated, highest performing aluminium race bike ever made. Designed as a pure race bike the CAAD12 Ultegra uses what Cannondale call ‘˜elite geometry’™. That means a flat back for flat out speed and nimble handling whether you are on the drops or the hoods. The aluminium frame is super stiff with an oversized bottom bracket, asymmetric chain stays and flared seat tube so you can get maximum power in sprints on your local club ride or crit. Cannondale have combined this with their SAVE micro-suspension to make the aluminium CAAD12 smoother riding than many carbon bikes. Best of all the frame weights in at just 1098g with an extra 330g for the forks. The CAAD12 Ultegra sits in the middle of the CAAD12 range is the great value for money. The model above it in the range, the CAAD12 Dura-Ace, actually uses a mix of Dura-Ace and Ultegra equipment. On the CAAD12 model you get full Ultegra and save yourself over £1000. If you are looking for a race bike on a budget the CAAD12 Ultegra is hard to beat. This bike is perfect for Racers and those who like going as fast as possible on their local club rides but don’™t want to spend the earth. The CAAD12 Ultegra is super-fast pure race bike that is affordable to maintain.
