Enter one of the most sophisticated aluminum racing stallion ever smithed: the CAAD12 105 5 is a speed demon waiting to be unleashed on your competition. Flow-modeled SmartFormed aluminum tubes yield low weights, phenomenal compliance, and unparalleled stiffness in the CAAD12's frame, and the race-inspired geometry won't shy away from a slammed position. Race-worthy wheels from Mavic roll quick, and are paired with tough Schwalbe tires, so you'll be sticking corners and sailing smoothly. Shimano's 11-speed 105 drivetrain supplies the gears you need on the attack and on the climb, and Tektro dual-pivot brakes bring things to a smooth halt when the need arises. High-quality handlebars and stem come straight from Cannondale, and Selle Royale has comfort locked down with the Seta S1 saddle.

Tapered head tube and fork.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.
