Where High Performance Begins

Unleash your inner racer with these high performance, high-value machines.

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".

  • HEADSUP RACE GEOMETRY
    The CAAD8 shares the proven race geometry of its CAAD10 brethren but with a slightly taller head tube 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.
  • EXTERNAL 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
    Found on both the 105 and Tiagra equipped models, BB30 is the epitome of system integration. Cannondale invented BB30 14 years ago to take frame and crank performance to the next level and it has become THE industry standard for stiffness and light-weight.
