  • After more than 3 decades of pioneering innovation, Cannondale knows aluminum; nothing is lighter, stiffer and smoother than the SmartForm C1 premium construction
  • At under 1,100g, CAAD12 is lighter than some premium carbon frames
  • SPEED S.A.V.E. micro-suspension delivers a ride quality that even competing carbon bikes can't match
  • Oversized BB30a bottom bracket junction, asymmetric chainstays and flared Delta seat tube offer supreme bike handling
  • Shimano 105 derailleurs and shifters offer precise, dependable shifts throughout the 22 gear combinations
  • Specs are subject to change

Imported.

All bicycles sold at REI include a free warranty tune-up. New bikes go through a normal break-in period, after which readjustment is important for longevity and performance. Bring your new bike in to your local REI for its free tune-up within 20 hours of use or 6 months from purchase, whichever comes first. Contact your nearest REI bike shop to schedule this important service.
