Rocket down the course exploiting the advantages of a truly aero bicycle with Cannondale's Women's Slice 5 105. It boasts a featherweight carbon frame and fork that have been expertly sculpted to cheat the wind. The rear wheel tucks neatly behind the seat tube and the razor-thin down tube slices through the air for maximum speed. You also get the energy-saving benefits of Cannondale's AERO SAVE technology that damps vibration, minimizing body fatigue and keeping you fresh so you can continue pedaling strong. To keep your speed up, the Slice is equipped with fast wheels powered by a crisp-shifting FSA/Shimano 105 20-speed drivetrain. On course or just out training, you'll be able to get down in your tuck with FSA aero bars while sitting on Cannondale's women's specific saddle.
The 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. Ingenious, fast and easy!
Cannondale's SAVE PLUS rear 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 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.
