Aluminati! Yes, I love Cannondale for what they've been making out of alloy since 1983. Cannondale CAAD12 is a truly masterpiece, but was there any point to skip the CAAD11?!

Looking at the upgrades from CAAD10 to CAAD12, I would say YES!

Main differences:

  • CAAD10 - traditional (for C'dale) 27,2 mm seatpost,
  • CAAD12 - 25,4 mm seatpost for better vibration damping,
  • CAAD10 - BB30 bottom bracket,
  • CAAD12 - BB30a - asymmetrical, wider BB sheel for greater stiffnes,
  • CAAD10 - internal cable routing for the rear brake cable,
  • CAAD12 - fully internal cable routing (the inserts to be improved though)

Additional features, that CAAD12 has are: totally new frame with different shapes, continuous carbon fiber SAVE fork, disc brakes version.

CAAD12 frame - 1098g vs already light 1050g for CAAD10.


Continuous carbon fiber masterpiece.


Delta Seat Tube even larger at the BB shell area.


Lighter than many carbon high-end bikes.
