2021 Cannondale CAAD13 Ultegra Disc Road Bike
Calling upon nearly forty years worth of technical aluminium expertise the CAAD13 Ultegra Disc Road Bike from Cannondale is the most advanced upgrade in their renowned alloy family.
Uniquely distributing material to key areas of the frame helps to keep weight low whilst optimising stiffness so that power transfer feels instantly effective. Sharing the same truncated airfoil tube shaping as the carbon SuperSix EVO reduces drag by 30% and the new low bottle mount position tucks your drink out of the wind for further savings in short intense rides or crit racing. At the back, the striking dropped seat stays allow for greater flex and compliance through the seat post and seat tube and there's enough space for a 30mm tyre for additional comfort across rough surfaces.
But don't be limited to dry sunny rides; with the mudguard mounts on the forks you can make this bike a full all-year training or racing machine.
The Shimano Ultegra groupset delivers performance mechanical gear shifting, including an 11-30 cassette for plenty of range when climbing and hydraulic disc brakes are powerful in all conditions. The clean lines are enhanced by the SwitchPlate cable management system, that makes maintenance easy and this is complemented by the integrated design of the frame, fork and seatpost.
