Start exploring on Cannondale's CAAD8 Claris 8. Cannondale's mastery of aluminum frames is evident when you inspect the shaped, large-diameter tubes with super thin-wall profiles. This creates an optimum blend of low weight and stiffness for awesome efficiency and incredible road feel. The Cannondale Ultra carbon fork offers precision steering and mutes road vibrations for a super-smooth ride. The quick-rolling Maddux wheelset with fast and grippy Schwalbe tires make the miles fly by. Shimano's Claris drivetrain places dependable, smooth-shifting performance right under your hands. Add a pair of powerful Tektro dual-pivot brakes, and you're ready for whatever lies ahead. A stem, bar, seatpost, and saddle from Cannondale ensure that rider comfort and ergonomics stay high.
