Description

Entry-level racing at its finest…

If you’ve ridden on before, jumping onto the CAAD invokes a familiar feeling. Out of the six bikes tested, this is the one that rides the closest to that of a premium racer. That said, a bike that feels similar to a high-end racer is not necessarily the best thing to choose for your first road bike.

The Cannondale reacts with spirit when you put your foot (pedals) down. Little energy is wasted as your efforts turn to speed rather quickly.

Tip the bike into a corner, and the CAAD holds its line with confidence, eager to be pushed harder and faster into the next. Its handling is fast, but it’s not a nervous-feeling ride.

When a bike that costs as much as a quality used car is amazing, don’t be surprised. This entry-level bike is worthy of praise and many say the Cannondale CAAD8 7 Sora is pure greatness.
