Rocket down the course enjoying the advantages of a truly aero free-speed machine on Cannondale's Slice 5 105. It boasts Cannondale's featherweight carbon frameset that's masterfully sculpted to cheat the wind. The razor-thin bike profile with a rear wheel hidden behind the seat tube means maximum speed. You also get the energy-saving benefits of Cannondale's SAVE technology that damps vibration, minimizing fatigue and keeping you fresh so you can go stronger longer. Speed is the name of the game with the build kit, too. The Slice rolls on quality Shimano wheels, the 20-speed drivetrain boasts crisp-shifting Shimano 105 derailleurs and a fine FSA crankset, the Cannondale brakes offer confident speed control and the FSA aero bars and Cannondale Tri seat let you find your perfect clock-beating aero position.
Cannondale's Slice two-position seatpost lets you run your seat in a front or rear position so that you can race in a triathlon position and a UCI-legal time-trial position respectively. All it takes to change the position is removing the seat and seat clamp hardware, reversing the seat clamp and reinstalling the seat and hardware in the appropriate spots in the post; it's ingenious, fast and easy!
Cannondale's AERO SAVE stays create a micro suspension system that allows the rear wheel to track the ground, improving comfort, control, traction and handling. Designed to help European pros carry speed over cobbled roads, this system allows the bike to roll faster, accelerate better and corner harder without affecting pedaling efficiency so your ride is both faster and more enjoyable.
BB30 is an oversize bottom bracket standard that boosts stiffness and decreases weight. BB30 bottom bracket bearings are pressed directly into compatible frames, meaning there are no heavy external cups to thread in. And, BB30 cranksets feature 30mm-diameter spindles (standard spindles are smaller) for greater pedaling efficiency and increased power transfer.
