Details

Cyclocross bikes are incredibly versatile thanks to dirt- and mud-capable components on a bike with aggressive, aerodynamic positioning. Cannondale's CAADX Sora is the perfect bike for commuting, exploring bike paths, or dipping your toes into the sport of cyclocross. Its CAADX aluminum frame with SAVE stays offers incredible efficiency and comfort while the carbon fork keeps the weight down and smooths vibrations. FSA cranks with cross-specific 46/36-tooth chainrings always have you in the right gear and the Sora group provides easy shifting even in the slop. And speaking of slop, the Tektro canti brakes offer plenty of power and mud clearance while the Schwalbe cross tires hook up in a wide variety of conditions.

Cannondale's SAVE rear stays create a micro suspension system that allows the rear wheel to track the ground, improving comfort, control, traction and handling. This allows the bike to roll faster, accelerate better and corner harder without affecting pedaling efficiency.

    Comments:

    I am 5'2" and I had some trouble finding a CX bike small enough to fit me. This one (the 44 frame size) fits me just fine. I have ridden it on gravel and paved bike trails, freshly graded gravel roads, paved country roads and a little bit on "easy" single track. Its lightness and speed compared to my hybrid bike and 29er is amazing. It is probably just me and probably goes completely against the spirit of cyclocross, but I wish there was a lower gear for hill climbing, especially on loose gravel when biking into the wind! I will be riding it in a race that combines off road, gravel roads, paved roads, rail trails and some killer hills in a couple weeks. I may have more to report then.
