Carbon will quake when you roll up on the CAAD12 Disc Ultegra. A veritable composite-killer, this aluminum steed has racing on the brain. SmartFormed aluminum tubes bring stiffness and razor-sharp handling to the table for a ride that pulls maximum power from your pedal strokes. Race-worthy Aksium wheels from Mavic are quick, nimble, and paired with Yksion tires to chew through corners and float up climbs. The 11-speed Ultegra drivetrain paired with Cannondale's groundbreaking Hollowgram crankset turns your revolutions into pure climb-conquering, sufferfest-inflicting speed. Shimano's hydraulic discs provide smooth, speed-scrubbing braking. Up front, Cannondale's own handlebars and stem create a cockpit you'll be proud to call home on this metallurgic thoroughbred.
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.
