Speed. Racer.

Oversized for Stiffness

The massively oversized BeatBox BB area, 1-1/8” to 1.5” tapered steerer, deep-radius headtube and oversized asymmetric chainstays deliver point-and-shoot handling and maximum power transfer.

Race-Winning Pedigree

Light and stiff, with an alive, communicative ride-feel, the 2012 SuperSix is the direct descendant of the frame that carried Team Liquigas-Cannondale to victory in the Giro d’Italia and Vuelta a España.

Hourglass Seatstays

Curved, hourglass-shaped seat stays allow for vertical deflection and compliance over less than perfect road surfaces. The result is improved control and comfort after long days in the saddle.

        I know it maybe late coming with this review,but I bought this bike new 3 years ago. It's really been a great bike but like any bike I have owned I have made my own upgrades.I started with the tires,replaced them with Vittoria Rubino III. Added Elite Custom race cages and Prologo Kappa PAS saddle. My biggiest changes was the drive train. As of 2015 I changed the drivetrain to SRAM Force 22 crankset still 50/34,and also changed the front dérailleur SRAM Force 22 with YAW. A lot nicer shifting and lighter and stiffer. Also went with a SRAM chain over the KMC stock and upgraded the SRAM cassette to a 11/32 for the mountains.Replaced the bar tape with black Prologo skin touch and red SRAM hoods.Other goodies include red valve stem bolts and caps and red chainring bolts from Purely Custom.

        Good Ride for an Entry Level Carbon Bike

              I got this bike because all of my cycling friends told me, Cannondale is a good brand to get and I would be happy riding it. This SuperSix with Apex components feels great. The shifting from high to low and low to high is smooth with the sram double tap shifters(even smoother if it came with rival or higher end components). The shimano stock wheels also rides smooth and the road vibrations are dampered by the carbon frame and fork. So it does not feel so punchy while riding over little bumps. The only thing I have changed out so far is switching to slick tires and the seat since having this bike for more than a year. My only big complaint about this bike is the weight. I have felt higher end model bikes and those feel really light but for this entry level bike and the price I got it, this is not so bad at about 18.6 lbs with my 2 bottle cages/delta clip pedals/cycle computer and rear safety light.
