About the Cannondale CAAD Optimo SoraThe CAAD Optimo is the perfect gateway bike to pure tarmac performance, designed for high speed on road over any distance. With features and geometry derived directly from the mighty CAAD13, its race-bred performance and welcoming price will get you hooked on cycling in no time. CAAD Optimo is CAAD13’s overachieving little brother. With trickle-down tech and geometry, it makes a killer first performance road bike, or great familiar training/backup bike for EVO/CAAD13 owners. Created using Cannondale’s Tube Flow Modeling design process, CAAD Optimo’s SmartForm C2 Aluminium construction is lighter and has a better ride-feel than many of our competitors’ premium alloy offerings. Elite race geometry with similar geometry to the CAAD13 and SuperSix EVO, CAAD Optimo offers riders true race handling and body position. Ride smoother with SAVE flex zones in the rear triangle and fork absorb shock for better comfort and control. For 2020, all CAAD Optimo models feature new, lightweight forks with full, one-piece carbon construction from dropout thru steerer.

From introducing the cycling industry’s first bicycle trailer, the Bugger, and added successful cycling apparel and accessory lines while earning a strong reputation for innovation and quality. Cannondale introduced its first bicycle, a Touring model, in 1983. They raised the cycling world’s eyebrows by building our bicycles around handcrafted, oversized aluminium frames that were both lighter and more flex-resistant than the steel models that dominated the industry at the time. In the last 14 years, Cannondale won five Giro d’Italia Maglia Rosas and most recently we won the Giro d’Iltalia and the Vuelta a Espana in one single year!Bike SizingChoosing the bike size depends on the type of bike, your height, your riding style, and your preference.
