Whether racing friends to the county line or sprinting for points in the local race series, Cannondale's CAAD10 4 Rival will likely turn your efforts into wins! The expertly crafted Cannondale aluminum frame is impressively light, stiff in all the right places, and amazingly efficient for stunning power transfer. Up front, Cannondale's SPEED SAVE carbon fork with a tapered steerer deftly carves the corners and damps vibrations to smooth rough roads. This ready rocket boasts excellent components, too, including fast-rolling Fulcrum Racing wheels powered by a precision-shifting 20-speed SRAM Rival drivetrain with an FSA compact crankset, and powerful SRAM stoppers, too. Plus, the Cannondale bar, stem and seatpost are the icing on this sweet machine.
|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.|
BB30 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.
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.
