Cannondale SuperSix Evo Hi-Mod Disc Ultegra Road Bike 2017
The Cannondale SuperSix Evo range is revered to as one of the lightest, stiffest and most responsive road bikes on the market due to Cannondale’s extensive time spent researching, developing and testing their top-end products. Now, with a completely redesigned frame for 2017, the Cannondale SuperSix Evo Hi-Mod Disc Ultegra Road Bike 2017 takes it to a whole new platform of efficiency, weight and comfort.
The SuperSix’s frame is constructed from Cannondale’s BallisTec Carbon, which is renowned for being incredibly lightweight, stiff and strong during every aspect of your ride. It’s responsive when you need to accelerate, it’s fast along the flats due to its incredibly low weight and its handling is ultra responsive and agile thanks to the Elite Race Geometry.
Further enhanced by Cannondale’s Hi-Mod Carbon layup, this BallisTec Carbon is stripped in weight, with a skinnier tube profile, but this doesn’t affect any of the rigidity or handling the SuperSix Evo is known for. The Hi-Mod construction is what differentiates this from the standard SuperSix Evo.
The asymmetric BB30a bottom bracket junction and chainstays ensure a stiff rear end, keeping it planted and enhancing the power transfer by reducing flex. This makes for an even more efficient bike over long distances, but it’s also down to the tirelessly engineered BallisTec Carbon layup which only weighs 829g.
SPEED SAVE Micro-Suspension is also another feature that sets the SuperSix Evo apart from the rest. This technology in the rear triangle, fork, seat tube and seatpost absorbs vibrations, shock and road inconsistencies for a more comfortable ride.
Having a lightweight frame can only do so much, and when you equip it with the wrong components, the ride quality can take a turn for the worst. Luckily, Cannondale’s extensive testing has led to fitting the Hi-Mod Disc Ultegra 2017 with a carefully selected array of high-performance components that work alongside the frame for a more comfortable, efficient ride.
The power transfer and climbing ability of this bike stems from the Shimano Ultegra 6800, 11-speed gearing and Cannondale HollowGram Si crank combination. The drivetrain produces super smooth, precise shifting - allowing you to keep your concentration on the task at hand, while the cranks remain strong to produce greater power transfer to the drivetrain. Whether you’re a seasoned climber or love heading out for day-long adventures, the 11-28 cassette provides the perfect gear ratios to fine-tune your riding style.
When you love getting out on the road, there’s nothing worse than walking out the door to realise it’s raining. It can ruin your ride and potential be dangerous due to reduced braking performance. Not to worry, Cannondale have equipped Shimano’s BR805 Hydraulic Flat Mount disc brakes to this bike to enhance your braking when riding in the wet.
These disc brakes perform as well in the wet as they do in the dry, so when you’re heading down the climb you just powered up, you’re safe in the knowledge you have the correct equipment to keep you safe.
A Mavic Aksium WTS wheelset connects all of these incredible features to the road, staying strong and reliable for efficient power transfer. Combined with Mavic Yksion Elite 700x25c tyres, you’ll find grip where you thought there wouldn’t be. Cornering at even higher-speeds and offering even lower rolling resistance than other 25mm tyres, this addition is sure to take your enjoyment on the roads to new heights.
