The speediest, smoothest, best handling, finest performing aluminum race bike on the planet.

For the last 4 decades, their pioneering CAAD bikes have set the bar for high performance aluminum frames and CAAD13 is the most advanced one yet. Fitting, since 13 is aluminum’s atomic number.

Technologies

The Aluminum Experts - Cannondale forged its legacy in aluminum and CAAD13's SmartForm C1 Premium Alloy is the lightest, most sophisticated aluminum construction available.

Speed of Light - The 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 Ever - CAAD 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 KNØT 27 seat post.

Clearly Capable - The new frame design has clearance for some seriously big rubber. The disc versions will fit 30mm tyres with tons of clearance, for extra comfort and capability on any kind of road.

Fender Up - Subtle fender mounts for wet weather riding and training

Features

Your Lucky Number - CAAD13 is the ultimate alloy race machine. With exceptional efficiency and superb handling, it out-performs most carbon — at an aluminum price.
Decreased Drag - With every new CAAD we design, speed increases. The same can’t be said for weight. Drag-reducing tube shapes and sleek integration keeps the CAAD13 light but make it much, much faster.
Smooth by Design - Dropped rear stay configuration and ample room for bigger tires delivers the best possible blend of stiff efficiency and unbeatable comfort in an alloy road racer.
