The CAAD Optimo Claris 2019 from Cannondale is the ideal road bike for aspiring performance-cyclists looking for a gateway bike or those who want to take their fitness to the next level. Cannondale often calls the CAAD Optimo range "CAAD12's overachieving little brother" due to identical geometry and elements of similar tech giving it race-bred performance at a welcoming price. Affordable components combined with impeccable craftsmanship makes the Claris a killer first performance road bike or even a worthwhile backup bike for EVO and CAAD12 owners.

The SmartForm C2 Aluminium construction is lightweight and has a great ride-feel thanks to the tubes shaped and profiled for an optimum blend of strength, low weight and stiffness, all joined together with strong double-pass welds. Cannondale's elite Road Race geometry, similar to that of the CAAD12 and SuperSix EVO, delivers a responsive and nimble ride in all handlebar positions to perfectly set you up for the win. The 1-1/8” to 1-1/4” tapered steerer provides the best balance of stiffness, compliance and weight while the innovative SAVE micro-suspension technology absorb shock and vibration for a smoother ride thanks to engineered flex zones in the seat stays and chainstays.

Adding a reliable and intuitive Shimano Claris 8-speed transmission to this equation creates a bike that is impressively race-worthy at an affordable price. Subtly integrated mounts and a bolt-on seatstay fender bridge expand the CAAD Optimo's versatility for commuting or for wet weather training. The CAAD Optimo Claris 2019 is waiting for you at the point where average ends and optimal performance begins.
