Cannondale CAADX 105
Cannondale was one of the pioneers of aluminium bikes, having launched its original ST-500 in 1983. While it now also makes carbon fibre frames, it's still using the same 6061-T6 aluminium that it did back then, making the CAADX frame the result of 27 years of evolution. All that experience is used to good effect to produce a fine riding 'cross all-rounder, that'll handle on-road commuting duties too.
It's cyclocross season everybody - time to get dirty. And when it's over it's often the case that a CX bike will get a runout as a workhorse in the off season: the geometry and spec normally suits a bit of dual use. And that's definitely the case with our latest test rig, the Cannondale CAADX 105.
