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.

  • Lightweight SmartForm C2 Alloy Frame w/ full carbon fork
  • Shimano 105 11-speed shifting / FSA Gossamer crank
  • Tektro R741 dual pivot brakes

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.

Ride Smoother

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Shipping and Returns

How much is shipping?

UK Mainland shipping bikes over £499 is free of charge, for orders under £499 we charge £29.95 for standard shipping.

We use DPD when shipping all our convensional bikes (i.e. not electric bikes) on an overnight service which includes full tracking and an hours timed delivery slot.

For further information please see our Shipping Policy.

When will you ship my order?

Orders placed before 12:00 on buisness days are usually shipped that same day.

Before we can ship your new bike, it needs to go into our workshop to be PDI'd (Pre-Delivery Inspected), during this inspection our mechanics will check everything is setup and ready to go - this can take a little time so on busy days or during sale periods it might take a day longer to process.

For further information please see our Shipping Policy.

How do I return an item?

If you need to return an item to us you can do so with 30 days of recieiving the item.

Simply follow the instructions on the paperwork enclosed with your order or visit our Returns Page for further information.

Returns are subject to our Refund Policy.

Is this bike in stock?

We only make available for sale products we have in stock, we do not remote warehouse products from suppliers as other stores do.

Our inventory is live except for bikes which are subject to up to a 24hr delay as our retail stores' inventory system is a bit archaic and requires a manual sync.

Have another question?

We have a Frequently Asked Questions page which also highlights our contact information should you need to contact us.

You can also contact us via Live Chat during normal office hours - the button is usually located in the bottom right of your screen.
