Your lucky number!
The CAAD13 is the ultimate aluminum racing machine. Thanks to its exceptional stiffness and superb handling, it leaves most carbon wheels behind - for the price of aluminum. How fitting! The 13 is the atomic number for aluminum in the periodic table of elements.
With every new CAAD Cannondale builds, its speed is increased. Of course, this does not apply to the weight. Optimized tube shapes provide less drag and elegant integration. The CAAD13 remains light, but becomes much, much faster. Deep chainstays and space for 30mm wide tires allow the best possible symbiosis of stiffness, efficiency and unbeatable comfort in an aluminum road racer.

Technologies & Innovations of the Cannondale CAAD13
SmartForm C1 Premium-Construction
Cannondale's highest quality aluminum construction, combining flow modeling and high strength 6069 aluminum for ultimate aluminum performance.
Speed of Light
The frame is characterized by highly adapted Airfoil tubes, which have up to 30 percent less air resistance than round tubes with comparable weight and the same or even higher stiffness.
Smoother than ever
CAAD bikes have always been known for their surprisingly high comfort. The CAAD13 is even more comfortable thanks to the newly designed SAVE rear section, integrated seatclamp and KNØT 27 seatpost.
Delivers a smoother, more controlled ride thanks to strategically engineered flex zones built into the frame's rear triangle.
Versatile and powerful
The frame offers space for wide tires: 30mm fit easily and open up new dimensions in comfort and traction - no matter how bad the road is.
Fully fender compatible. A removable fender stay between the seat stays is there when you need it and quickly dismantled if not.
