In 1990s Cannondale achieved the distinction and goal of becoming the first high-volume producer of aluminum frames, at a time when only steel frames were mass-produced and aluminum was handmade in low volumes. Cannondale marketed subsequent frames with the CAAD designation (for “Cannondale Advanced Aluminum Design”) which first appeared in their mountain bike frame series.
Saeco was the name of very successful Italian road bicycle racing team, sponsored by the company with the same name. A stars like Mario Cipollini, Francesco Casagrande, Cadel Evans, Paolo Salvodelli rode on Cannondale CAAD bicycles in late 1990s and early 2000s. Swiss rider Philipp Buschor was a member of Saeco Team 1997. He finished 9th at the Tour de Suisse ’97 and 137th at the Tour de France ’97.
