Bikes Built Your Way
Taking limited edition, drop the mic dream road bike builds to a whole new level. When the call came from Cannondale to tell us we would be one of the few lucky retailers in the UK to receive a handful of their new, super limited edition SuperSix EVO Leichtbau Framesets we couldn't contain our excitement. With just 200 in existence, read on to find out how we transformed this frameset into a road-ready high performance dream bike.
What is Leichtbau?
'Leichtbau' translated from German means 'lightweight'. Not just in name, this special SuperSix EVO is 90 grams lighter than the current Hi-Mod SuperSix EVO Frameset, coming in at a mere 750 grams (minus fork). The differences between this and the standard SuperSix EVO do not end there though. This special incarnation comes with unique CNC alloy details and smart parts, as well as a premium colour and graphic combination that is exclusive to the Leichtbau.
Assembling the Build
To celebrate getting our hands on this piece of Cannondale history we entrusted Dan, a member of the Sigma Sports Hampton Wick store bike sales team, and Will, one of our expert mechanics from the Sigma Sports Esher workshop, with the task of speccing and building the ultimate SuperSix EVO. Let's just say they didn't hold back.
Speccing the SuperSix EVO Leichtbau Road Bike
A frameset of this stature deserves parts equally as impressive and that is just what adorns this machine. At the heart of the build is Shimano's Dura-Ace 9250 Di2 12-speed electronic groupset, the pinnacle of Shimano's drivetrain range. Adding that custom sparkle, the CeramicSpeed OSPW System is a favourite among our staff.
No dream bike build is quite complete without a set of head-turning hoops and the Princeton CarbonWorks PEAK 4550 White Industries Carbon Disc Wheelset fits the bill. Rolling smoothly on 28mm wide Pirelli P ZERO Race Clincher Road Tyres this is a formidable pairing. The cockpit comes courtesy of ENVE, with the 40cm Traditional Road Handlebar and 120mm Road Stem looking the business. Lizard Skins DSP V2 Bar Tape provides the perfect finishing touch. Sit comfortable on the Tune Komm-Vor Carbon Saddle and take it all in. We sure will be.
Tipping the scales, fully decked out in its 51cm size at just 6.61kg, we think this bike ticks all the boxes for those looking for something truly unique, with the performance credentials Cannondale SuperSix EVO frames are known for. Complement it with finest components and make every one of those miles in the saddle truly pleasurable.
