THE UNFAIR ADVANTAGE



The SuperSix EVO is the ultimate road racing machine. Designed to be the perfect blend of all the key factors of performance - weight, stiffness, strength, compliance, handling and aerodynamics.

The SuperSix EVO is:

  • LIGHT: At under 700 grams, it is the lightest production frame in the world.
  • STIFF: It has the best stiffness-to-weight ever recorded, an incredible 142.3 Nm/deg/kg.
  • STRONG: Outperforms even most aluminum frames in destructive and fatigue testing.
  • SMOOTH: The two zone SPEED SAVE micro-suspension system improves comfort, speed, and control.
  • SLIM: EVO's smaller diameter tubes give it a significant aero advantage over its oversized competitors, without the weight and stiffness compromises of aero tube shapes.

Rider Profile:

Designed for the serious road racer, the EVO breaks the mold for elite race machines.

TECHNOLOGIES

  • BallisTec Carbon
    Cannondale's High Strength carbon construction method allows us to achieve extreme light weight, without sacrificing stiffness or strength.
  • EVO Frame Options
  • EVO Nano: The lightest production frame on the planet utilizes advanced high modulus BallisTec Construction and nano tech resins for maximum weight savings.
  • EVO Hi-MOD:
    The frame that started it all in 2012. High modulus BallisTec construction delivers extreme light weight and stiffness.
  • EVO Carbon: By using a higher percentage of intermediate-modulus fiber to tune the stiffness, we are able to expand the EVO line with a super high-performance, sub-950 gram frame. Offered both with and without internal rear brake routing.
  • SPEED SAVE
    Micro-Suspension Rear Stays Subtle flex zones built into the chainstays and seatstays allow the rear wheel to track the ground, improving speed, handling and comfort. Tuned to work with the SPEED SAVE Fork.
  • SPEED SAVE Fork This 315 gram fork features full BallisTec carbon construction, an 1-1/8"to 1-1/4" tapered steerer for the best balance of weight and stiffness, and offset dropouts, which allow for more fork angle and compliance without affecting handling.
  • Reduced Frontal Area
    Compared to the oversized competition, the EVO's downtube is close to 20% smaller, the headtube 11% smaller, and the fork blades 15% thinner. This means less frontal area and less drag. In fact, tests show that EVO has a mere 14g more drag than the best "aero" frames without their added weight and harsh ride.
  • Continuous Carbon
    A continuous network of high modulus stiffening fibers runs around joint areas and along the outer edges of the frames tubes, connecting all parts of the frame and allowing precise tuning of stiffness and ride quality.

              Going for a ride on this bike is a euphoric experience. This bike pushed my fitness to new level, because it was so fun to ride i couldn't stop. All of my cycling skill improved after purchasing this fine machine. I had always struggled with descending , but I found the evo to be a much more balanced and comfortable ride. This bike is almost perfect in every way. The only thing I would change about it is the headset, it come loose numerous times. I am very pleased with my Cannondale. I would definitely recommend this bike to anyone who seriously looking to fine the best bike on the market.

                    I'm a weekend racer in a region with plenty of variable terrain. Rides can range from 165km bunch riding to 80km hammer down club races.

                    The Evo Black Inc delivers performance in all conditions, climbs like a mountain goat and powers up in sprints like nothing else I've ridden.

                    The super stiff frame doesn't mean a rough ride with the nano carbon frame smoothing out even the roughest country roads.

                    The only down side is my fellow racers accuse me of cheating with one of the lightest and stiffest frames in the world...one word, 'jealous' :-)

                          The most amazing frame built in the last 10 years. I love the ride and stiffness. You can build a sub 12lb bike.. If you have the cash, this sucker will rock the house. Very few new high tech items make a noticeable difference- super light wheels and clip pedals for road- suspension seat post for a hard tail mt. bike. However, This frame is a real leap and you will feel it on the first ride. I can't think of one con - well the price is about twice what my pick up is worth but.....
