As the rest of the industry was trying to figure out how to make an aluminum race bike as good as the CAAD10, Cannondade taken a quantum leap all the way to CAAD12, a road bike so light, so stiff and so smooth that it's going to fundamentally change the way people think of aluminum performance. It is simply the world's finest aluminum road racing machine.

The Caad12 is designed for aspiring racers, fast club riders and anyone else looking for a high-performance alternative to carbon.

  • The most sophisticated, highest performance aluminum race bike ever made.
  • Lighter,stiffer,and smoother riding than many elite carbon frames.
  • Up to 170 grams lighter, and over 50% more comfortable than the incredible CAAD10.

CAAD12 is the first bike to be designed with our new Flow Modeling process and the results are striking. Flowing, organic shapes that yield lower weights (sub-1100 gram frame CAAD12's minimalist flat-mount disc mounts are not only ultra light (the disc frame is actually a few grams lighter than the non-disc one!) but they are incredibly strong. weights for both disc and non-disc) and radically improved compliance, while maintaining our trademark frame stiffness.

  • Over 50% more vertical compliance than CAAD10.
  • Same two-zone SPEEDSAVE concept as SuperSixEVO.
  • Completely re-engineered SPEEDSAVE stays allow for more vertical deflection at the rear wheel, improving tracking, cornering, and sprint/climb traction.
  • New 25.4mm seat post and re-engineered Delta seat tube allow more deflection at the saddle for additional seated comfort.
  • CAAD12 uses the same fork design as the SuperSix EVO Hi-MOD.
  • Same two-zone SPEEDSAVE concept as SuperSixEVO.
  • 12.5% improved vertical compliance, with 6% better lateral stiffness. Better comfort, better handling
  • 290grams for Hi-MOD, 375grams for standard BallisTec Carbon..

Outstanding value !!
Reviewed by: FKeefe on 03/09/16
The CAAD 12 is an outstanding value and I would rate it as one of the best bike I have ever ridden. For me it has the perfect blend of comfort and stiffness enabling me to end my rides without having my nerves rattled and maintaining the responsive feel of a solid road machine. The cockpit has a great feel to it, enabling several position changes while maintaining control and access to your systems. The CAAD 12 is a great cornering machine as well allowing you to go deep and fast while never feeling that you are on the edge. This is a great road machine for club racing or lets say, high performance commuting. My CAAD 12 was purchased at Nytro in Encinitas CA and the team at Nytro did their predictably outstanding job setting it up and are always available for the kind of support you simply won’t get from the larger format stores.
