Our 2018 model CAAD12 105 is an exceptionally lightweight road bike made from an aluminium alloy which is both extremely lightweight and very strong. The CAAD12 is a racing pedigree bike and is built more for speed than climbing. It is lighter than the Synapse but the Synapse has an extra spinning gear on the rear cassette giving an extra gear to make climbing easier.
The spec on the CAAD12 is precisely as mentioned below except for the tyres, which we change after each tour. The tyres we use will either be 25mm or 28mm and be Gatorskins or very similar.
The bike also comes fitted with 2 x water bottle holders (bottles not provided), small saddlebag with spare innertube, tyre levers, pump attached to the frame, speedometer and lights. We can also provide a map holder and helmet if required.
