Cannondale SuperSix EVO Carbon Ultegra Di2 Womens Disc Road Bike 2020
Look no further for a lightweight, aerodynamic bike with an up to date electronic groupset; the SuperSix EVO Carbon Ultegra Di2 Womens Disc Road Bike from Cannondale provides all this along with hydraulic disc brakes and integrated componentry.
The SuperSix has long been Cannondale’s lightweight offering, but this latest iteration has been through the wind tunnel and now offers a huge 30 watt saving at 48kph. Furthermore, this benefit has not been at the expense of added weight so the lightweight DNA has been retained with the frame weighing only a few grams more than previously. This difference is more than made up for by the savings made from the new integrated seatpost binder design, which also allows more seatpost flex for added comfort. Fully internal cabling gives the bike a lovely clean look and also adds to its aerodynamic credentials.
Fingertip gear changes are provided by Shimano’s 11-speed Ultegra Di2 groupset, with just the lightest of button touches needed to accurately change ratios thanks to the electronic actuation. Equally impressive is the power generated by the Ultegra hydraulic brakes which are easy to modulate but can haul the bike to a standstill without drama in all weather conditions.
Key to Cannondale’s latest SuperSix is their concept of integrated development, so the seatpost, stem, handlebar and wheels all work in conjunction with the frame for maximum aerodynamic benefit. The HollowGram 45 SL KNØT carbon wheels are extra wide at the rim, even sitting proud of most tyres; this width helps the air to reattach itself when passing over the wheel, leading to less drag.
