Cannondale CAADX Sora 2013 Cyclocross Bike. A supremely versatile bike, the all-new, completely redesigned CAADX cyclocross bikes demonstrate their racing heritage with CAAD10 and SuperX inspired tube shapes, SAVE stays and race-bred geometry while rack and fender mounts and a slightly more upright position expand its usability. The CAADX has a slightly taller head tube and slightly slacker head tube angle than the SuperX, providing a more upright position and stable handling. The flattened shape and refined butting of the stays offer significant vertical compliance for comfort and control over rough surfaces, while remaining laterally rigid for solid power transfer and confident handling. A true smooth weld, rather than the sand, putty, and paint smooth welds found on other bikes, Cannondale's trademark double-pass smooth weld technology eliminates the stress-risers and weak points found on traditionally welded frames, enabling us to build lighter, stronger frames.
The CAADX Sora features a CAADX Cyclocross, Optimized 6061 Alloy frame, Cannondale Ultra X fork with carbon blades, FSA Vero Cross Compact chainset (46x36), and Maddux DRX 6000 rims, finished off with Schwalbe Sammy Slick, 700x35x tyres.
