CANNONDALE CAAD13 105 DISC ROAD BIKE 2021
Cannondale is well renowned for their expertise with aluminium, and this is clearly used within the CAAD13 105 Disc Road Bike to produce a reactive and precise performance for the fastest of road riding applications. Blending the sophisticated alloy frame with a carbon fork and reliable components, the CAAD13 is ready for any race or rapid group ride.
The CAAD13 frame utilises state of the art SmartForm C1 Premium Alloy that is unique to Cannondale, and this keeps the weight low but also maximises stiffness and efficiency to facilitate fast climbing and snappy sprinting. Each frame tube section possesses a truncated airfoil cross-section, and this lowers drag for increased speed when the pace is at its highest. At the same time, the SAVE tuned rear triangle smooths road bumps to give a more cushioned and less fatiguing ride.
The full carbon fork complements the frame by damping road buzz while clearance for 30mm wide tyres improves comfort and control across any road surface. The frameset is realised with a race-inspired geometry that places the rider in the perfect position for power transfer and nimble handling.
Dependable performance is provided by the Cannondale RD 2.0 wheelset with its lightweight alloy rim donating sharp acceleration and rough road resilience. The Shimano 105 gear configuration changes sharply across its ratios allowing quick reaction to pace changes when racing. The matching 105 hydraulic disc brakes give confidence to any rider in any weather conditions thanks to their highly modulated stopping power.
Frameset mounts and a removable seatstay bridge complete the build by offering easy installation of mudguards when the weather turns truly foul.
