SUPERX GEOMETRY:  With the same geometry and fit as its big brother, SuperX, the CAADX delivers awesome traction, stability and handling. It’s also a perfect pit bike for new SuperX owners.

“BEST OF BOTH” HANDLING:  OutFront steering geometry offers drama-free stability on technical courses and potholed streets but maintains quick-handling agility everywhere else.

LIGHT AND SMOOTH:  SmartFormed C2 Alloy Construction and CAAD12-inspired tube shapes keep it light and easy to shoulder, while redesigned SPEED SAVE micro-suspension helps you track smoothly through the rough stuff. Clean internal routing on the frame and fork for the disc brake lines.

SWEET VERSATILITY:  Subtle rack mounts, a removable seat stay mudguard mount and hidden fork mudguard mounts expand its usability without affecting its racy looks.

35MM TYRE CLEARANCE:  While it may not have the massive clearance of the Ai-equipped SuperX, CAADX has room
to run full 35mm wide tyres, even with its super short chainstays.

2017 Cannondale CAADX

SMOOTH WELDS - A true smooth weld, rather than the sand, putty, and paint "smooth welds" of other brands. Cannondale's trademark double-pass smooth weld technology eliminates the stress-risers and weak points found on traditionally-welded frames, enabling them to build lighter, stronger frames.

SAVE STAYS - Dramatically shaped and flattened seat stays and chainstays absorb shock for better control, traction and comfort.  The flattened shape and refined butting of the stays offer significant vertical compliance for comfort and control over rough surfaces, while remaining laterally rigid for solid power transfer and confident handling.

EXTERNALLY-MACHINED HEAD TUBE - A technique Cannondale has used for years, excess material is precisely machined out of the low stress areas of the head tube, saving significant weight with no loss of strength.  1-1/8" to 1-1/4" tapered steerer and headtube provide the ideal blend of stout steering precision and light weight.

SMARTFORM ALLOY CONSTRUCTION™:  The most advanced aluminium frame construction on the planet.  SmartForm construction allows Cannondale to make the lightest, best riding aluminium frames on the market.   By pairing three decades of accumulated aluminium construction experience with the advanced design capabilities of their CAAD Cannondale Advanced Aluminium Design) Flow Modelling Process, SmartForm techniques deliver incredibly precise wall thickness distribution and tube shapes, concentrating material exactly where needed to maximize stiffness and strength, while shaving every last extraneous gram from the structure. Internally, all butting is accomplished via smooth, tapered transitions to eliminate the abrupt changes in material thickness that cause stress-risers. Unlike the putty-and-paint “smooth” welds of our competition, Cannondale’s legendary double-pass smooth welds create the strongest possible joints. Combined with Cannondale’s post-weld, heat-treat process that creates a true one-piece finished structure, and you’ve got simply the most advanced aluminium frames available anywhere.

SMARTFORM C2:  Not every frame can be C1. It's simply too costly and labour intensive but, make no mistake, that passion for high-performance aluminium carries throughout Cannondale’s  line. Cannondale’s SmartForm C2 frames feature many of the sophisticated frame building techniques found on the unmatchable C1 frames. Refined butting, precisely controlled tube shapes and exceptional double-pass welds combine to create frames that others would be proud to call their best. World class weights, great stiffness and that unmistakeable Cannondale ride-feel combine to deliver an incredible performance value.

REAR RACK AND MUDGUARD MOUNTS - Making the CAADX a truly versatile performer. Rear mudguard mount/bridge is removable if needed for maximum mud clearance.
