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


  • 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.
