Where Performance Takes Off. 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

FEATURES:

  • 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.
  • Full Carbon Fork: Premium carbon fork features full carbon fiber construction and a tapered steerer, for ultra low weight, and maximum steering precision.
  • Versatility Built In: Subtle rack and fender mounts expand CAAD Optimo's versatility for commuting/wet weather training.
  • Smoother Than Ever: CAAD bikes have always been known for their surprisingly smooth ride. CAAD Optimo features a newly designed SAVE rear triangle to absorb road chatter for better comfort and control.

*In the bicycle industry, suppliers and factories sometimes change specs without notice and state that they are "subject to change without notice". This is because bicycles are made from hundreds of parts which come from dozens of vendors. Parts are sometimes updated to the most current production generation/iteration one gets better or more current parts or a comparable part. Product specifications are subject to change without notice.
