Make your own luck.
This is the speediest, smoothest, best-handling, finest-performing aluminum race bike on the planet.
With every new CAAD we design, speed increases. The same can’t be said for weight. Drag-reducing tube shapes and sleek integration keeps the CAAD13 light but make it much, much faster. Dropped rear stay configuration and ample room for bigger tires delivers the best possible blend of stiff efficiency and unbeatable comfort in an alloy road racer.

The Aluminum Experts
Cannondale forged its legacy in aluminum and CAAD13's SmartForm C1 Premium Alloy is the lightest, most sophisticated aluminum construction available.
Speed of Light
The frame features highly truncated airfoil tube shapes that offer the same weight, and equal or better stiffness, than round tubes, but can reduce drag by up to 30%.
Smoother Than Ever
CAAD bikes have always been known for their surprisingly smooth ride. CAAD13 is even smoother, thanks to the newly designed SAVE rear triangle, integrated seat binder and 27 KNØT seat post.
The new frame design has clearance for some seriously big rubber. 30mm tires fit with ease, for new levels of comfort and capability on any kind of road.
Speed Release Equipped
The Speed Release thru-axles allow faster, easier wheel changes and are compatible with most standard thru-axle wheelsets.
Fully fender ready. A removable fender bridge on the rear stays is there when you need it, gone when you don't.
