The CAAD12 RED eTap is a speed demon waiting to be unleashed on your competition. SmartForm aluminum tubes yield lower weights, calculated compliance, and unparalleled stiffness in CAAD12's frame, and race-inspired geometry puts you in the best position to contest the sprint. Race-worthy carbon wheels from Cannondale roll quick and are paired with tough Schwalbe tires to keep you firmly planted through hairpin turns, and SRAM's electronic RED eTap drivetrain supplies the gears you need to attack on the flats and smoke your buddies up the climbs. And, SRAM Force brakes bring things to a smooth halt when the need arises. High-quality handlebars and stem come straight from Cannondale, and Fizik has comfort locked down with the Antares R5 saddle.
Electronic drivetrain systems deliver excellent shifting, easy set up, and solid battery life. Here are some benefits of electronic shifting that you don't want to miss.
Electronic shifting systems use powerful servo motors to rapidly shift the chain. Because microprocessors and sensors constantly monitor every aspect of the system, they shift with surgical precision and without chain rub.
Many major systems have customizable shifting. Some have the ability to add remote shifters for common riding positions, and some even allow you to change the functions of the shifting buttons.
Electronic groupsets are responsive and consistent. There are no cables to stretch and wear out, so you get a flawless shift every time. The added bonus is you'll never have to replace a derailleur cable ever again.
