A true performance road bike with race-winning DNA – delivering champagne experience for lemonade money.
Where it thrives: The open road, In competition
What it's built for: Speed, Handling, Durability
- Exceptional Aluminum Performance: Everything we 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 our competitors’ high-ticket alloy offerings.
- Elite Race Geometry: With geometry influenced directly from our award-winning CAAD13 bike, the CAAD Optimo offers true race handling and optimal body position at all times.
Ride Smoother with SAVE: 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.
