CAAD Optimo 1 Description
The new CAAD Optimo range delivers exceptional handling and superb efficiency for a modern road experience whilst simultaneously delivering value for money. Each CAAD Optimo features Cannondale's latest SmartForm C2 Optimo frameset, a full carbon fibre fork and depending on the version you opt for an appropriate drivetrain groupset - the Optimo 1 is at the top of the range with premium quality Shimano 105 components throughout.
Exceptional Aluminum Performance
Whatever is it Cannondale doesn't know about aluminium framesets probably isn't worth knowing about – the CAAD Optimo features refined tube profiles, precision butting, and double-pass welds create frames that are lighter and ride better than any competitors’ high-ticket alloy offerings.
Elite Race Geometry
With geometry influenced directly from their award-winning CAAD13 bike, the CAAD Optimo offers true race handling and optimal body position at all times.
Along with Optimo's new dropped seat stay profile, finely engineered flex zones in the rear of the frame absorb road chatter for better comfort and control.
Full Carbon Fork
Premium carbon fork features full carbon fibre construction and a tapered steerer, for ultra-low weight, and maximum steering precision.
The Optimo might be designed as a race bike but it still features subtle rack and fender mounts enabling the bike to be adapted for commuting or wet weather training.
