Fast, fun, and ready to hit the road, Cannondale's CAAD8 Flat Bar 2 is the perfect blend of speed and comfort. Drawing from Cannondale's expertise in crafting world-class aluminum road frames, the CAAD8 Flat Bar boasts race-proven handling with a back-friendly, heads-up fit for superior perspective and comfort. The Cannondale Ultra carbon fork evens out rough pavement and chip seal for a quick, smooth ride. The CAAD8 Flat Bar 2 is equipped with everything a rider needs to conquer the climbs and the descents. A 16-speed Shimano Claris drivetrain has a wide, hill-conquering gear range, while the sturdy aluminum wheels, grippy Kenda tires, and powerful Shimano brakes keep the descents under control. Your comfort is covered by Cannondale's own exceptional components and a svelte, supportive Cannondale saddle.
