The savvy pro-alloy rider knows carbon doesn't always mean better. Cannondale's CAAD12 is a beast on the crit course, and a lifelong companion on the road. The super smooth-riding SmartForm C1 alloy frame rivals carbon for its stiff, light construction and ride quality, and the dialed-in geometry puts you in complete control. The Shimano Dura Ace drivetrain and hydraulic disc brakes will give you precise shifting and braking performance even in tricky conditions, and HollowGram Si carbon rims are fast-rolling, smooth, and lightweight. Cannondale's own aluminum components make up the cockpit, and a supportive Fizik saddle is primed for long days in the saddle.
