Cannondale's CAAD10 Ultegra Racing Edition will rocket you to the top of the climb, and to the front of the group ride. Cannondale's engineered aluminum tubes are light, stiff and compliant so you can ride stronger and longer, while features like the frame's BB30 bottom bracket make the CAAD10 impressively stiff for maximum power transfer, excellent acceleration, brilliant handling and stunning climbing prowess. Meanwhile, up front, Cannondale's SPEED SAVE carbon fork with a tapered steerer handles corners and rough pavement with ease. Plus, this race-ready rig is equipped with fast-rolling FSA wheels, a precision-shifting, 20-speed Shimano Ultegra drivetrain with a Cannondale Hollowgram compact crankset, and powerful Ultegra brakes. Other notable specs include the quality Cannondale stem, bar and seatpost, and the wonderful Prologo seat.
|Cannondale's SPEED SAVE stays (left) and fork (right) create a micro suspension system that improves comfort, control, traction and handling. It allows the bike to roll faster, accelerate better and corner harder without affecting pedaling efficiency.|
BB30 is an oversize bottom bracket standard that boosts stiffness and decreases weight. BB30 bottom bracket bearings are pressed directly into compatible frames, meaning there are no heavy external cups to thread in. And, BB30 cranksets feature 30mm-diameter spindles (standard spindles are smaller) for greater pedaling efficiency and increased power transfer.
For increased stiffness and improved steering precision, tapered head tubes (see image, on left) and forks pair an oversize lower steerer tube (usually 1 1/2-inch, see image, on right) with a standard diameter upper steerer tube (usually 1 1/8-inch). This combination sheds weight compared to straight 1 1/2-inch systems, and adds stability and stiffness when compared to straight 1 1/8-inch systems. The result is a bike that tracks better through corners while allowing for the use of standard stems.
