Details

Cannondale's SuperSix EVO Red C boasts the perfect blend of stiffness, strength, and ride quality! This thoroughbred racer boasts a BallisTec carbon frame and fork that work in perfect harmony to bring your riding and racing to the next level. From aerodynamic touches like narrower down and top tubes and slimmer fork blades, to compliance zones that damp vibration and boost speed, to specifically tuned high-strength, high-modulus fibers that enhance strength and stiffness, the EVO is one of the quickest, most-responsive and best-handling bikes the peloton has ever seen. For even more speed, it comes spec'd with zippy Mavic Ksyrium Equipe wheels, SRAM's WorldTour-proven Red group, and a spread of Cannondale's own featherweight, podium-ready cockpit controls.

Cannondale Ballis-Tec carbonWhen constructing their carbon fiber frames, Cannondale uses high strength, high impact resins similar to those used in carbon baseball bats. The fibers and resins are put in a lay-up designed to maximize the anisotropic (direction specific) qualities, making for a bike that is light and stiff, and capable of absorbing impact without damaging the structural integrity. Once the frame has passed quality testing, Cannondale adds stiffer, higher-modulus fibers in safe areas to increase stiffness and tune the ride.

Cannondale's SPEED SAVE rear stays (left) and fork (right) create a micro suspension system that allows the bicycle’s wheels to track the ground, improving comfort, control, traction and handling. This allows the bike to roll faster, accelerate better and corner harder without affecting pedaling efficiency.

Tapered head tube and fork.For increased stiffness and improved steering precision, tapered head tubes (see image, on left) and forks pair an oversize lower steerer tube (usually 1 1/2-inch, see image, on right) with a standard diameter upper steerer tube (usually 1 1/8-inch). This combination sheds weight compared to straight 1 1/2-inch systems, and adds stability and stiffness when compared to straight 1 1/8-inch systems. The result is a bike that tracks better through corners while allowing for the use of standard stems.

BB30BB30 is an oversize bottom bracket standard that boosts stiffness and decreases weight. BB30 bottom bracket bearings are pressed directly into compatible frames, meaning there are no heavy external cups to thread in. And, BB30 cranksets feature 30mm-diameter spindles (standard spindles are smaller) for greater pedaling efficiency and increased power transfer.

Comments:

I ride 4-6 days a week on New England roads. Long rides are 80-100 miles but typical rides are between 20-50 miles on variety of roads. This bike is an excellent road bike. The SRAM Red components are very good (once you adjust to them from Shimano or similar). I have never ridden with Ultegra or Dura Ace but I'd peg SRAM Red as somewhere in between the two of them in terms of overall value and performance. Bike climbs great due to its light weight and also descends very quickly (I weigh 165-170 lbs). The original Fizik saddle was hard and too flat. The original chain wore out very quickly as well. Overall not every component is top quality but for $4000 price tag this is a great option for avid cyclists.
