Like any other aluminum frame, it's extremely stiff and allows for very quick power transfer. The CAAD9 5 is very close to having that elusive balance that makes a race bike both expendable and valuable at the same time. There are a lot of very nice and very expensive bikes out there that will outperform the CAAD9, the Cannondale's SuperSix for example, but the CAAD9 5 will perform admirably with no great financial loss if it ever becomes scrap once it crosses the finish line. With the CAAD9 5 sprinting, climbing, and corning is very solid, and the Premium carbon fork dampens the harshness of the road beneath you. The CAAD 9 5 comes with the Hollowgram Si SL crankset, which with the BB30 frame makes the CAAD9 5 very light. It also features Pro-Tour geometry designed for worldwide races. The CAAD9 5 has a top tube with a larger diameter at the head tube, and a down tube and seat tube that enlarged as they reached the bottom bracket. It is solid, well balanced and predictable. The CAAD9 5 comes in Nu Team Blue with white and black accents, and Charcoal Grey with white and red accents.
