The Aluminum ExpertsCannondale forged its legacy in aluminum and CAAD13's SmartForm C1 Premium Alloy is the lightest, most sophisticated aluminum construction available.
Speed of LightThe frame features highly truncated airfoil tube shapes that offer the same weight, and equal or better stiffness, than round tubes, but can reduce drag by up to 30%.
Smoother Than EverCAAD bikes have always been known for their surprisingly smooth ride. CAAD13 is even smoother, thanks to the newly designed SAVE rear triangle, integrated seat binder and 27 KNØT seat post.
Clearly CapableThe new frame design has clearance for some seriously big rubber. 30mm tires fit with ease, for new levels of comfort and capability on any kind of road.
Speed Release EquippedThe Speed Release thru-axles allow faster, easier wheel changes and are compatible with most standard thru-axle wheelsets.
Fender UpFully fender ready. A removable fender bridge on the rear stays is there when you need it, gone when you don't.
