You’re done being a “rider”—you want to be a “cyclist.” You want to bump up a level on the club rides. You ditched the cut-offs and t-shirt for padded cycling shorts. Yup, you’ve caught road-bike fever. May we prescribe CAAD8. With its lightest-in-class frame, more forgiving Heads-Up Race geometry and tubes inspired by its CAAD10 sibling, your ambition will be swiftly rewarded.
Quite possibly, the perfect first road bike. An upright position for greater riding comfort combined with silky smooth SAVE PLUS technology gives first-time road riders, commuters and fitness-lovers a versatile blend of comfort, speed and value. Advanced alloy construction creates a lightweight, responsive frame with the crisp handling you’d expect from a Cannondale. Subtle, understated rack and fender mounts are ready to get to work or seek out adventure.
Those who live for the love of the ride. Fit, serious, high-performance riders who set their sights beyond the tightly defined world of the pure racer; Gran Fondo specialists, all-day-epic riders, and those who long to venture off the smooth and easy.
