Staff Review - CAAD12 First Impressions

Staff Review - CAAD12 First Impressions

Fabian rode and raced his Cannondale CAAD10 all through last season. We've always been big fans of Cannondale's Aluminum bikes so when the CAAD12 was released this year Fabian was one of the first to jump at the chance to test it out. After a few rides, he was sold. Here's what he had to say.

"The bike rode great for its price tag. This is a bike that is super stiff yet forgiving on bumps and everything else the road throws at you.

I found the bike very responsive to acceleration and coming out of corners. The tubing seems a little slimmer, which I liked because I felt like my knees would hit and rub the top tube on the CAAD10 every so often. 

This is a straight up race ready road bike out of the box that I would recommend for any beginner, but also the more experienced rider looking to use this as their training bike and still get great results.

I look forward to riding one next race season. Cheers!"
