INTRODUCING THE ALL-NEW SUPERSIX EVO WOMEN'S

What do we mean by “Fit”?

Number 1

Designed for women, by women. Each and every Cannondale Women’s product is conceived and developed by women, for women.

 
Number 2

Encompassing: Geometry, sizing and general usage. We work closely with our engineers, athletes and real-life users to develop geometries and sizing that work for every size, every shape and every use.

 
Number 3

A bike that fits well, right out of the box is more likely to be ridden. We want to give you the empowering confidence that your bike is built to suit you, perfectly.

What do we mean by “Features”?

Number 1

Everything that goes into or onto the bike. At Cannondale, we call this SI or “System Integration”. It means that every detail of the bike, from tube-sizing and shaping to componentry is intentional, planned and developed to work perfectly together.

 
Number 2

Size-specific carbon layups, tube shaping and cable routing, just to name a few! We like to say that if everything is going right, the only thing you will notice is how much fun you’re having while riding. We pour over the details so you don’t have to. Our women’s and size-specific mindset allow us to dedicate ourselves to perfecting each individual bike and frame size across the spectrum of products. Sure, we hope you’ll notice some of our sweet details, but what we really want is for you to have an awesome ride!

 
Number 3

We go beyond touch points to ensure that every ride is comfortable and confidence-inspiring. Features are so much more than just checking a box. We want to surprise you and help you fall in love with the cycling lifestyle. We know how important touch points are to the overall enjoyment of riding, so we work closely with our designers and vendors to develop components like saddles and grips. If they don’t have something we feel is necessary, we help them create it so that everyone can benefit.

What do we mean by “Fashion”?

Number 1

Careful color and graphic design that appeals to each of our very individual riders. The industry used to treat anything and everything related to women as, “Shrink it and Pink it”. While we appreciate, some of you like pink, we know you want options. You want colors and graphics that represent and inspire you.

 
Number 2

Graphics that coordinate with our apparel, helmet and accessory line-up. Love the look of a coordinated outfit? Yea, so do we. We develop our bicycle, helmet, apparel and accessories together for just that reason!

 
Number 3

For women, by women. All of our Cannondale Women’s Bicycle graphics are created by women. ‘nuff said.

“The World’s Most Advanced Women’s Road Race Machine.”

The best bike in the world, re-engineered for women. With its all-new women’s specific geometry and sublime balance of feathery weight and unmatched stiffness, strength and comfort the all-new SuperSix EVO Women’s is ready for racers small to tall.

Rider Profile:

The ultimate machine for elite women racers or those seeking to ride like one.

The All-New SuperSix EVO Women’s is:

Everything you ever dreamed a road bike could be…and more.
Light, stiff, strong, smooth and built for you.
Ready for its close-up with subtle race-inspired graphics.
Built around an all new women’s-specific elite geometry: Be aggressive.

All New Elite Geometry: An all new women’s-specific geometry based on frontal stack height and reach for each of the 5 (48-56) sizes available, making size selection and fitting a cinch!

Two BalisTec Carbon Frame Options: EVO Hi-MOD: The lightest women’s race frame in existence. High modulus BallisTec construction delivers extreme light weight and stiffness. EVO: By using a higher percentage of intermediate-modulus fiber, we make EVO technology available to more women. Under 900 grams, it is still one of the lightest women’s frames in the world.

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: A directional BallisTec carbon layup and offset dropouts give the fork the ability to absorb shock. A 1-1/8" to 1-1/4" tapered steerer offers the best balance of weight and stiffness. Available in 2 rakes to eliminate toe overlap on small sizes.

DISTINCT ROUTING: Cable routing that changes according to the size of the frame provides the best possible braking and shifting performance. Sizes: 44, 48, 51, 54, 56cm
