Cannondale is producing award-winning CAAD (Cannondale Advanced Aluminum Design) series of road bikes since 1983. CAAD10 is the current generation of the American bike manufacturer’s top aluminum frame.

CAAD frames are legendary because they’re lighter, stiffer, and smoother riding than many elite carbon frames. Cannondale claims that the CAAD10 is the most sophisticated, highest performing aluminum race bike ever made.

Cannondale is the first U.S. bicycle maker to supply frames under its own name to a European professional team (Saeco). Saeco was a top-level European team, with the world’s fastest sprinter Mario Cipollini on the squad. Cipollini raced an “R4000” model (CAAD3) in the 1997 season according to Cannondale.

One of the Saeco team’s most memorable moments was Cipollini’s 4 consecutive stage wins in the 1999 Tour de France. The image of Mario Cipollini approaching the TV camera right after a win to say, “Cannondale makes the best bikes!” propelled Cannondale’s popularity among road racers.

“An excellent bike for the money. If you are looking for an all-rounder at this price, you’d be mad not to consider the CAAD10 seriously.” –Road.cc
