Lets say you you’ve been into road riding for a while. You already own an entry-level road bike, but since getting it, you’ve become absolutely hooked with road cycling, and you’re looking to take it to the next level. You’re out riding every weekend with your mates, but you want to start racing some local club criteriums too. You’re in need of a lightweight race bike that won’t break the bank, but will provide you with quick acceleration off the mark, sharp handling, and a stretched out position that will allow you to get down low for sprinting towards the finish line. If that sounds like you, then the Cannondale CAAD12 Womens is your ideal race partner.

Using the same race-oriented geometry as the SuperSix EVO, the CAAD12 features much of the same technologies and features, but packs them into a lightweight alloy frame. But why use alloy instead of carbon fibre? Firstly, the alloy CAAD12 comes in at a much more accessible price point than the SuperSix EVO. Secondly, a well-made alloy frame like the CAAD12 actually rides really well. Cannondale launched the new CAAD12 in 2016, and it features super slim seat stay tubes that help to absorb road vibrations, while a skinny 25.4mm diameter carbon SAVE seatpost also improves the CAAD12’s ability to smooth out the bumps. Combined with wider 25c tyres, the new CAAD12 offers a more comfortable ride than any other alloy road bike before it. Being a women’s specific model, the CAAD12 is available in a smaller range of sizes for shorter female riders, and it features specific components like a women’s saddle and narrower handlebars that offer a better fit overall.

Like the idea of disc brakes? Then checkout the CAAD12 Disc Ultegra model with its smooth hydraulic stoppers. Alternatively, the CAAD12 range kicks off with the top-value CAAD12 105 model that packs in some serious performance for the dollars.
