This is for the core - the local heroes, the crit assassins, the working-man racers with chiseled legs and dreams of glory, because they know that when it comes to pure performance for the buck, nothing can touch CAAD12. Lighter, stiffer and smoother than most carbon frames, it’s not just the finest alloy racing bike ever made, it's the only choice for those who know. CAAD12’s ‘SPEED SAVE’ micro-suspension delivers a ride quality that even competing carbon bikes can’t match. This cutting-edge technology reduces road shock and vibration and so improves rider comfort, handling and control.
Weighing in at under 1100 grams, the CAAD12 is a serious competitor for many premium carbon frames. And its SmartForm C1 premium 6069 construction is unbelievably rigid and smooth to ride. Ensure the power you put into pedalling transfers efficiently to your sprint speed thanks to the CAAD12’s oversized bottom bracket junction, asymmetric chainstays and ﬂared seat tube.
