2021 Cannondale Mens CAAD13 Disc 105 Road Bike in Black PearlSeason:2021

Brand:Cannondale

Code:C13301MBP


2021 Cannondale Men's CAAD13 Disc 105 Road Bike in Black Pearl. CAAD stands for Cannondale advanced aluminium design. Cannondale has spent 40-years perfecting aluminium frames the CAAD13 certainly demonstrates all those years of hard work entirely. Aluminium is the 13th element on the periodic table so its fate that the CAAD13 is a masterpiece of engineering and design and the most impressive aluminium bike on the market today. Until the Caad13 came along the Caad12 was considered the best alloy bike in the world! The CAAD13 is faster, more comfortable, capable and beautiful. The CAAD13 competes head to head with a carbon road bike on every level but the price!
The Frame is made from Smart form C1 alloy construction. Which means no expense is spared to ensure every ounce of unnecessary material is removed while creating a frame strong enough to meet Cannondale's lifetime warranty. An all-new tube shapes focus on aerodynamics. Delivering the weight and stiffness of a round tube but with up to 30% less drag. Consideration has been paid to smaller speed details such as two locations for a water bottle cage on the down tube.
The CAAD range is known for intuitive handling, the CAAD13 improves on this sharing the same geometry and rider position to the Supersix Evo. Giving quicker, precise handling and a high-performance riding position.
Comfort has been improved upon, a new configuration of SAVE micro-suspension technology in the tubes, drop rear seat stay, knot 27 seat post and integrated seat binder work together to absorb the impact of bumps in the road. This is an enhancement on the CAAD12 which was known for being a smooth ride already!
Other features include a full carbon fork. Massive tyre clearance with space for 30mm tyre and room to spare. Note: the rim brake version is limited to 28mm tyre clearance still good for comfort and grip.Internal cable routing with a switchplate system similar to the Synapse and Supersix Evo to easily configure all different setups.Speed release thru front and rear axels enabling rapid wheel changes if needed.
The CAAD13 is fantastic value for the technology and capability you get from the Bike I cant see how they can improve on this model but they probably will somehow!
Features:
All-New, SmartForm C1 Premium Alloy, integrated cable routing w/ Switchplate, SAVE, BB30a, 142x12 Speed Release thru-axle, Di2 Ready, flat-mount disc frame
BallisTec Carbon, SAVE, fork
Shimano 105 groupset
This Bike is great for:
With a lightweight but robust frame made for speed, the CAAD13 holds its own and then some its great for all-round road riding, crit and road racing.

    Sadly only available in 48cm frame so would only suit someone quite short.

    Maybe I’m totally out of touch with bike prices but doesn’t this seem pricey for an aluminium frame?
    Granted it’s a cannondale aluminium frame but still feels expensive

    Cannondale don't make anything themselves. They buy from factories in Asia. These terms like smartform etc are just marketing. There was I think a year or so back where the frame manufacturing changed radically it used to be smooth welds and then went to obvious welds and its likely they just changed factory.

    Fuji-ta used to do a lot of Dorel manufacturing including the Cannondale brand. Then Dorel got sold to the big Dutch bike Pon Holdings and then they were bought by a US investment group.

    Fuji-ta dominate high quality aluminium frame production in the world, it is the biggest manufacturer of bikes by far with factories in mainland China, Cambodia, Vietnam and probably other places too. They are also huge for folding bikes, Decathlon, Halfords, Dahon, Tern, Bickerton, Compass, Raleigh and no doubt many others have used them for folding bikes.

    It's a long time ago that Cannondale used to make their own frames and forks in the US.

    Just making the point the Cannondale brand means nothing its whether the bike itself is good value for its specification and design/geometry etc.

    Merida and Giant are actual manufacturers but then they are Taiwanese brands.

    This a good price these days?? Remember my old CAAD10 105 was £950.

    So was mine, but that was nearly 10 years ago. I think that the CAAD10 has a great frame and I expect that the CAAD13 (probably) improves on it. Also, my c£1000 version didn't have hydraulic disk breaks and I think that is a big improvement. I recently bought a 2022 bike (different brand) and would say that £1725 is a good price for this one.

    The alum 105 synapse is £1400 at various retailers. Isn’t it the same bike with different frame geometry?

    For what it's worth, it seems that the frame of the CAAD13 is Cannondale SmartForm C1 Premium Alloy, whereas the frame of the Synapse is Cannondale SmartForm C2 Alloy.

    I don’t think this is a good deal. Merida, Giant and Canyon are selling carbon for similar prices. A friend has this bike though and said it’s very comfy, not exactly a featherweight race machine though.

    Mm maybe, I’ve been a bit out of the loop since I bought my bike in 2020, although that was when prices were super high. Anyway I just think the pros of aluminium (sturdiness) are not something most people need on a road bike, because it’s still a £1500+ bike - you’re gonna take care of it. So people who talk about carbon being fragile I don’t understand. The CAAD and Allez Sprint are both marketing exercises to me. Nothing beats the feeling of being clipped in to a stiff, light carbon bike. I’d be disappointed paying nearly 2 grand for alu if it was a racey bike I was after. Which merida did you go for - Reacto? Awesome bikes.

    Aluminium bikes were great when they were a lightweight upgrade from a heavy, hi-tensile steel boneshaker from Halfords, but I'd rather go for a nice chromoly steel, carbon or titanium number.

    Now your talking.

    I really like the CAAD range, but for winter I’d want HT2 or a threaded BB. Still my old 10 never creaked with its BB30 in winter. (edited)

    I have a CAADX 105 for winter. Few years old now but it's still excellent.

    The micro suspension is marketing speak. Steel will have better feel. (edited)
