Join the Aluminati

Think you know aluminum? Think again. Incomparably light, explosively stiff and impossibly smooth, the all-new CAAD12 is redefining aluminum performance. It’s the finest alloy racing bike ever made and the only choice for those who know.

Rider Profile:

Aspiring racers, fast club riders and anyone else looking for a high-performance alternative to carbon.

TECHNOLOGIES

  • FLOW-MODELED SMARTFORMED 6069 ALLOY CONSTRUCTION
    CAAD12 is the first bike to be designed with our new Flow Modeling process and the results are striking. Flowing, organic shapes that yield lower weights (sub-1100 gram frame weights for both disc and non-disc) and radically improved compliance, while maintaining our trademark frame stiffness.
  • UPDATED SPEED SAVE MICROSUSPENSION
    CAAD12's seat stays and chain stays have been completely redesigned to allow them to have even more vertical deflection, but stay stiff laterally and torsionally. This lets the rear wheel track the ground, improving speed, cornering, grip and comfort.
  • ELITE RACE GEOMETRY
    Unlike much of the competition at these price points, the CAAD12 is a thoroughbred racer. Its geometry is virtually identical to our SuperSix EVO Hi-MOD for razorsharp cornering and aggressive race positioning.
