Replacing the CAAD10, Cannondale's newest aluminum racer is lighter and stiffer than its predecessor. Cannondale claims the ride quality is close to, if not as good, as its carbon models, such as the SuperSix EVO. The carbon fork helps, but Cannondale engineers used their new Flow Modeling process to create new tube shapes that yield lower weights and better compliance, while maintaining frame stiffness. The most popular CAAD12 build will probably be the Ultegra-equipped model with the brand's proprietary SI crankset, Shimano hydraulic discs and Aksium wheelset. The CAAD12 Ultegra Disc will run $2,660.
