Cadillac Elite Road Series ERT-2 Road Bike

Equipped with a state-of-the-art frame, topnotch components, and an innovative design, the Cadillac ERT-2 Elite series road bike is truly in a league of its own. The Dedacciai frame features the company's EM2 tubing, a high-quality aluminum/carbon fiber combination--often referred to as a "third metal"--that's stronger than traditional rides and approximates the rigidity of soft steel. At the same time, the frame is three times lighter than most aluminum frames, making it ideal for longer and more challenging courses. The frame also incorporates Kevlar fibers into specific regions, adding a special resistance to sudden stress and the ability to absorb vibrations. Complementing the frame is a Reynolds Ouzo Pro carbon fiber fork--the choice fork of pro cycling teams worldwide. Reynolds' proprietary one-piece manufacturing process spreads 100-percent carbon material throughout the crown to deliver unrivaled strength while weighing very little, with the ability to turn even the hardest riding into a comfortable cruise. The fork also features an exclusive vibration minimizing system that significantly reduces the hard road vibration normally transmitted to the rider.
Also along for the ride are the FSA K-Wing handlebars, which feature continuous carbon/Kevlar composite construction. The next-generation design permits you to alter your hand positions for a variety of riding styles and terrains. The carbon fiber also absorbs much of the road shock for even more comfort and stability. And as you'd expect from Cadillac, every component is of the highest quality, including the seat post and saddle. The professional racing-level Deda Elementi Blackstick carbon fiber seat post is extremely lightweight and minimizes any and all vibrations. Mounted on the seat post is a comfortable, high-end Velo Carbon saddle with hollow titanium rails.
Finally, the ERT-2 is loaded with Shimano Ultegra shifting and braking components. The front and rear derailleur are Shimano Ultegra 6600s, known for their reliability, strength, rigidity. More significantly, the 6600s create a sharp, precise shift that's fast and smooth even from low to high gear. The 10-gear Ultegra shifters, meanwhile, feature a narrow cradle-style perch that welcomes a high-on-the-hood riding style and accommodates all sizes of hands. The robust internal mechanism provides the same level response as Dura Ace shifters, with an ergonomic shift stroke movement. Add in such features as a FSA carbon fiber crankset, a quick-stopping dual-pivot brake design, a Mavic Ksyrium Elite wheel set, and Shimano Ultegra clipless pedals and you have an elite road bike for commuting or cruising. All this in a frame that weighs only 17 pounds (without the pedals).
The bike offers the following wheel sizes: 46 cm (for riders between 5' 0" and 5' 5"), 49 cm (for riders between 5' 3" and 5' 7"), 51 cm (for riders between 5' 5" and 5' 9"), 54 cm (for riders between 5' 7" and 5' 11"), and 57 cm (for riders between 5' 10" and 6' 3"). The ERT-2 carries a lifetime warranty on the frame and a one-year warranty on parts.
