View the rest of the Cannondale CAAD8 Range >

The 2016 Cannondale CAAD8 Claris 8 is a high performance, lightweight racing bike. Featuring Cannondale's award-winning advanced aluminium frame at the heart, this bike is exciting, comfortable...and very fast.

The aluminium frame at the heart of the CAAD8 brings a remarkable level of performance to this entry-level road bike, taking advantage of Cannondale's expertise in aluminium engineering. Cannondale aluminium frames are in a league of their own, and if you're looking for the best frame at the most competitive price point then you won't go wrong with the CAAD8. Jump on this bike and you'll immediately feel like you are riding something special.

Featuring advanced doublepass welds on the frame for a smooth and high quality finish, this bike provides an affordable introduction into performance racing bikes. Ride harder and faster all day long with the compliant SAVE rear stays, which will absorb some of the road buzz on bumpy surfaces, giving you a smoother ride. 

The overall ride-feel is unmistakably Cannondale - exciting but comfortable...and very fast. For the geometry, Cannondale have taken their 'race-ready' setup from the SuperSix Evo which results in a fast riding position, however a slightly taller headtube on the CAAD8 provides a slightly more upright position for improved comfort and visibility on the roads. The headtube is also machined externally so it is stiffer and therefore offers more responsive handling in the corners. This stiffness is continued into an oversized bottom bracket area. This again offers improved power transfer through each pedal stroke. 

Shimano Claris gearing delivers a smooth, reliable gear change with a race ready double chainset up front and 12-28 ratio on the back. Matched with a responsive frame and Maddux wheels, the CAAD8 will speed ahead of the competition on race day.
