Out-climb, out-descend, out-corner and out-last the competition on a race bike so good, it’s almost unfair.
Designed for the serious road racer or enthusiast seeking superior carbon performance for a superior price.
BALLISTEC CARBON CONSTRUCTION
Extreme light weight. Perfectly tuned stiffness. Remarkable strength.
BallisTec is Cannondale's proprietary method of high-strength, high-stiffness carbon construction. It is the ideal blend of the most advanced materials in the world combined with the most advanced carbon engineering and design.
SPEED SAVE MICRO-SUSPENSION
Absorbs road buzz and vibration. Roll faster. Corner harder. Fatigue less. Speed Save works primarily via the balance between rear triangle and the fork. On the rear triangle, both the chainstays and the seatstays are able to flex slightly vertically to absorb shock, while up front, the fork's offset dropouts and lay-up allow it to have a matched amount of deflection. This creates a true micro-suspension system that allows the wheels to track over imperfect surfaces, whether the rider is seated or standing. This provides better traction and handling, higher speeds and faster cornering. The second part of the system concentrates on rider comfort. The seat tube features a directionally optimized carbon layup which allows it to deflect slightly fore and aft, which diffuses vibration and impacts and reduces the energy-sapping muscle micro-trauma caused by long days in the saddle.
Ultra light and ultra stiff integrated cranks for ma ximum power transfer. The soul of your bike starts at the soles of your feet. The crank is where your muscle power gets converted into hair-on-fire acceleration, and no cranks in the world do it better than Cannondale's HollowGram™ and Si cranksets. Designed to leverage the benefits of the BB30 system, these ultralight cranksets lead the industry for stiffness-to- weight for ultimate efficiency.
