Cannondale CAAD10 5 105 2013 Compact Road Bike. The world's finest aluminium road racing machine. With a frame that weighs just 1150 grams (average), CAAD10 is not only lighter than many competitors' elite carbon frames, but also stiffer and smoother - a testament to Cannondale's decades of aluminium crafting expertise. Unlike much of the competition at these price points, the CAAD10 is a thoroughbred racer. Its geometry is virtually identical to our SuperSix EVO for razor-sharp cornering and aggressive race positioning. A complex mix of hydroforming, mechanical shaping, taper-butting, double-pass smooth welding and heat treating, SmartForming is the most advanced aluminium construction in the world, for lighter, stronger frames. The flattened shape and internal butting of the CAAD10's seat stays and chain stays allow them to flex vertically, but stay stiff laterally and torsionally. This lets the rear wheel track the ground, improving speed, cornering, grip and comfort.
The CAAD10 5 105 2013 Compact Road Bike features a CAAD10, Smartformed 6069 Alloy, SPEED SAVE, BB30 frame and CAAD10, SPEED SAVE full carbon fork, along with FSA Gossamer, BB30 compact chainset with 50x34 tooth chainrings along Shimano 105 shifters, derailleurs and 10-speed cassette. The CAAD10 5 105 is finished with Schwalbe Lugano 700x23c folding tyres on Shimano RS-10 rims.
