With someone's all-important first road bike purchase, it's the details that determine whether it gets ridden regularly or hung in the garage. With its lightest-in-class frame, more forgiving Heads-Up Race geometry, CAAD10-derived tubeshapes and unmistakable Cannondale ride-feel, we designed the CAAD8 to turn "riders" into "cyclists".
Incredible level of race performance for an entry to mid level price tag.
Racy handling, but with a comfortable riding position.
Cannondale Aluminium crafting and CAAD10 DNA put it in a class of its own
RIDER PROFILE: Fast group rides. Lycra. The first crit. This is the bike for people who've been inspired by the peloton and are ready to start being a "cyclist".
HEADS UP RACE GEOMETRY The CAAD8 has proven, sharp handling race geometry but with a slightly taller head tube (+1.5 cm) for a more relaxed riding position.
SAVE STAYS Optimized chain stay and seat stay shaping provides lateral rigidity while providing vertical compliance for bump absorption and comfort with no loss in power transfer.
SMOOTH WELDS A true smooth weld, rather than the sand, putty, and paint “smooth welds” found on other bikes, Cannondale’s trademark double-pass smooth weld technology eliminates the stress-risers and weak points found on traditionally welded frames, enabling us to build lighter, stronger frames.
ASYMMETRIC CHAIN STAYS Just like on our premium race bikes, we oversize and reshape the driveside chain stay to better handle the loads from the drivetrain, while keeping the non-drive stay svelte for weight savings.
EXTERNALLY MACHINED HEAD TUBE A technique Cannondale has used for years, excess material is precisely machined out of the low stress areas of the head tube, saving significant weight with no loss of strength.
BB30 SYSTEM Many CAAD8 models feature BB30 bottom bracket shells. The epitome of System Integration, Cannondale invented BB30 15 years ago to take crank and frame performance to the next level and it has become THE industry standard for stiffness and light weight.
“IF YOU’RE AFTER A ROAD BIKE AT A PRICE THAT SCRAPES IN UNDER THE £1,000 MARK THEN I’D SAY LOOK NO FURTHER: IT’S A VERY COMPELLING PACKAGE AND GREAT VALUE TO BOOT” - Road CC
