Where Performance Takes Off
A true performance road bike with race-winning DNA – delivering champagne experience for lemonade money.

Where it thrives
The open road, In competition

What it's built for
Speed, Handling, Durability

Highlights
- Lightweight SmartForm C2 Alloy Frame w/ full carbon fork
- Shimano Sora 9-speed shifting / FSA Vero crank
- Promax RC-452 dual pivot brakes

Exceptional Aluminum Performance
Everything we know about aluminum road bikes in one space – refined tube profiles, precision butting, and double-pass welds create frames that are lighter and ride better than our competitors’ high-ticket alloy offerings.

Elite Race Geometry
With geometry influenced directly from our award-winning CAAD13 bike, the CAAD Optimo offers true race handling and optimal body position at all times.

Ride Smoother with SAVE
Along with Optimo’s new dropped seatstay profile, finely engineered flex zones in the rear of the frame absorb road chatter for better comfort and control.

Full Carbon Fork
Premium carbon fork features full carbon fiber construction and a tapered steerer, for ultra low weight, and maximum steering precision.

Versatility Built In
Subtle rack and fender mounts expand CAAD Optimo's versatility for commuting/wet weather training.

Smoother Than Ever
CAAD bikes have always been known for their surprisingly smooth ride. CAAD Optimo features a newly designed SAVE rear triangle to absorb road chatter for better comfort and control.
