The CAAD13 is described by Cannondale as "the speediest, smoothest, best handling, finest performing aluminium race bike on the planet. " Who are we to disagree? But it's not just them, the CAAD series has for long been regarded as one of the best, if not the best, aluminium race bikes ever made. With a frameset at around 1kg each new addition seems to get lighter, stiffer and smoother, such that at a time when others have left the field Cannondale's premium aluminium road bike is a real standout. Get aluminium and the tradeoff is better spec throughout the rest of the bike.
The 2021 version - the 'thirteen' may be unlucky for some but Cannondale have kept the faith and treated it to its most radical makeover in years. More 'aero' than the last, but improving in particular, on ride comfort this iteration. Early reviewers have been most impressed.
No one does aluminium like Cannondale - who were pioneers in this material in the 1980s. The CAAD series continues to see off its carbon rivals from other brands and if you still don't believe us, ask some of our other customers. This bike is a winner.
