Drawing inspiration from the pro peloton and Cannondale's racing history, the CAAD8 105 is a high-test road machine for the masses. Cannondale's mastery of aluminum frames is evident when you inspect the shaped, large-diameter tubes with super thin-wall profiles. This creates an optimum blend of low weight and stiffness for awesome efficiency and incredible road feel. Up front, Cannondale's Ultra carbon fork offers precision steering and mutes road vibrations for a super-smooth ride. The quick-rolling Maddux wheelset and sure-shifting 22-speed FSA/Shimano 105 drivetrain is poised to take your riding to the next level with fast action and hill-topping gear range. Grippy Schwalbe tires carve the corners, Tektro dual-pivot brakes provide sure stopping power, and a fine stem, bar, seatpost and seat from Cannondale ensure rider comfort and ergonomics stay high.
