Details

The CAAD10 3 Ultegra builds on Cannondale's long history of crafting superior aluminum bicycles. Its meticulously shaped tubes are light and compliant so you can ride stronger and longer while features like its BB30 bottom bracket make it impressively stiff for maximum power transfer, excellent acceleration, and climbing prowess. Up front Cannondale's SPEED SAVE carbon fork with a tapered steerer carves corners and smooths rough pavement with ease. Plus, this race-ready rig is equipped with fast-rolling Mavic wheels, a precision-shifting FSA/Shimano Ultegra 22-speed drivetrain, and powerful Ultegra brakes. Other notables include the quality Cannondale stem, bar and carbon seatpost, and the fine Fizik seat.

Cannondale's SPEED SAVE stays (left) and fork (right) create a micro suspension system that improves comfort, control, traction and handling. It allows the bike to roll faster, accelerate better and corner harder without affecting pedaling efficiency.

BB30BB30 is an oversize bottom bracket standard that boosts stiffness and decreases weight. BB30 bottom bracket bearings are pressed directly into compatible frames, meaning there are no heavy external cups to thread in. And, BB30 cranksets feature 30mm-diameter spindles (standard spindles are smaller) for greater pedaling efficiency and increased power transfer.

Tapered head tube and fork.For increased stiffness and improved steering precision, tapered head tubes (see image, on left) and forks pair an oversize lower steerer tube (usually 1 1/2-inch, see image, on right) with a standard diameter upper steerer tube (usually 1 1/8-inch). This combination sheds weight compared to straight 1 1/2-inch systems, and adds stability and stiffness when compared to straight 1 1/8-inch systems. The result is a bike that tracks better through corners while allowing for the use of standard stems.
