Cannondale CAAD10 Black Inc

Expert Review

Cannondale carefully designed every part of the CAAD10 Black Inc. to make it as similar to elite carbon fiber bikes as possible. The ability to custom fabricate carbon fiber has allowed it to have stiffness and flex not easily obtained with aluminum. Cannondale uses specifically molded aluminum tubing for the CAAD10, however, which replicates the variable stiffness of carbon fiber.

Cannondale also uses shaping and welding technology that allows the frame to have the weight of carbon fiber without compromising the greater durability of aluminum. To top it off, this bike features SRAM's top of the line, 22-speed components. While carbon fiber still holds a few advantages over aluminum, the CAAD10 Black Inc. comes very close to closing the gap entirely.Rating: 5/5
