SAVE micro-suspension: 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.
REAR RACK AND MUDGUARD MOUNTS – Making the CAADX a truly versatile performer. Rear mudguard mount/bridge is removable if needed for maximum mud clearance.
FLAT MOUNT DISC BRAKES: Low profile, easy to adjust and super-light flat disc mounts offer the ultimate in controlled stopping power.
