Cannondale CAAD OPTIMO 3 - Sora Roadbike - 2023 - black


A true performance road bike with race-winning DNA.

Race-winning ability need not be the preserve of the elite – the all-new Cannondale CAAD Optimo is your gateway to the liberating world of smooth, fast and agile race bikes. Exceptional handling and superb efficiency deliver a pure, modern road experience.

Everything Cannondale know about aluminum road bikes in one space – refined tube profiles, precision butting, and double-pass welds create frames that are lighter and ride better than other competitors’ high-ticket alloy offerings. With geometry influenced directly from the award-winning CAAD13 bike, the CAAD Optimo offers true race handling and optimal body position at all times.

Along with Optimo’s new dropped seatstay profile, finely engineered flex zones in the rear of the frame absorb road chatter for better comfort and control.

Features of Cannondale CAAD OPTIMO 3:

  • SmartForm C2 aluminum frame
  • Carbon fork with fender mount
  • Elite Race Geometry
  • SAVE Micro-Suspension
  • Integrated Rack/Fender Mounts
