The Aluminium road bike has made a bit of a comeback over recent years, thanks to its ability to give riders a great deal of comfort, even on the roughest of terrains.
The Cannondale CAAD12 has quickly become a shining example of this resurgence. Its comfortable handling and smooth ride make it a joy to ride during those long journeys on country roads.
Despite the level of competition, Cannondale seem determined to take everyone on with the CAAD12. The high-quality alloys that are used on aluminium frame design are lighter than ever, which is a big part of the reason why it is so easy to handle. The frame itself weighs a meagre 1098g, making it a full 52g lighter than its predecessor the CAAD10.
It’s when you take this bike out onto the rough roads that you really experience its full potential. The strong alloy frame allows you to glide along the tarmac without having to deal with every bump and vibration on the road. This is one of the main reasons why it is the ideal choice for someone who enjoys endurance bike riding.
If you are in the mood for speed, then the CAAD12 is light enough to allow you to accelerate quickly and efficiently, with every turn of the peddle adding to the acceleration of the bike. Couple that with the impressive handling and you will not have to worry too much if you have to make a quick turn or a correction along the way.
With so many amazing qualities, it’s pretty clear that this bike is one of the most impressive that you can get this year, regardless of what material it is made from. While carbon bikes are still popular, it’s quite clear that aluminium is here to stay.
The Cannondale 2016 CAAD12 is one of the most impressive bikes in our range and is available for £1,499.99. This model is selling fast so make sure you get yours now before it’s too late!
