The CAAD12's progeny — Cannondale's CAAD Optimo is the perfect gateway bike. With features and geometry derived directly from the mighty CAAD12, the Optimo's race-bred performance and welcoming price will get you hooked on cycling in no time. You'll shift without a second thought, thanks to the Shimano 105 drivetrain, and the carbon fork steers with precision while soaking up light road vibrations. Cannondale supplies the cockpit, seatpost, and saddle, so you know your position will be dialed-in and comfortable on every ride.
