Description

Open the gateway to road cycling performance with the CAAD Optimo Claris. With characteristics that echo the mighty CAAD12, it's a perfect first road bike for the new enthusiast. Premium SmartForm alloy tubing is lighter and rides better than the alloy offerings of other competitors, and boasts a much better ride. Elite race geometry puts you in position to perform, and SAVE flex zones absorb shock for better control. Shimano's Claris drivetrain provides smooth shifts, and Claris caliper brakes ensure confident, powerful braking.
