CAAD8 Flat Bar 1

< back

Comfortably Fast.

A uniquely nimble but forgiving creature with the race-bred performance of the CAAD8 road frame and the heads-up comfort of flat bars.

rider profile:

Built for people who want the style and speed of a road bike, without the aggressive position.

  • HEADSUP RACE GEOMETRY
    The CAAD8 Flat Bar shares the proven race geometry of our premium road bikes but with a slightly taller head tube (+1.5 cm) and a slightly longer top tube, for a comfortably correct position with flat bars
  • FLAT BARS
    Flat bars offer a comfortable position, a secure grip, and familiar controls.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • SMOOTH WELDS
    A true smooth weld, rather than the sand, putty, and paint “smooth welds” of our competition, 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.
