The team says the bike is designed to perform well on the road and to deliver a competitive price.
Read moreThe bike has been tested and certified by Shimano, but we don’t know the technical details of its aerodynamics and braking system.
But the team says it is a stable and lightweight bike that performs well on road and off.
Read moreThe Cannondals Optima has an 11.0-litre, two-stroke-per-cylinder engine that is equipped with a front valve and rebound damping.
Shimano’s carbon fork provides stiffness and a responsive ride, while its aluminium seatpost helps to reduce wheel spin.
The bike is powered by a Shimano Deore XT cassette, and the rear wheel is Shimano Dura Ace 3.0 which is a rear-wheel drive system with hydraulic disc brakes.
There is also a hydraulic disc brake lever on the handlebars, and a cable routing system on the front axle.
We’re waiting for more details from Cannondales Optima team about the bike’s performance.
The bike has a price tag of $9,999 USD, which is about $400 more than the Shimano road bike.
