Cannondale SuperSix EVO Hi-MOD Dura-Ace Di2 Disc Road Bike 2020
Cannondale’s SuperSix EVO Hi-MOD Dura-Ace Di2 Disc Road Bike has now received an extensive aerodynamic makeover, but still retains its core, lightweight DNA. The carbon frame still weighs just 866 grams (claimed weight, size 56), but features aerodynamic tube profiles with Kamm tails and a new dropped seatstay design along with full internal cabling. Crucially though, it’s the holistic integration of the componentry with the frame that allows the SuperSix EVO to stand out; the HollowGram SystemBar and HollowGram KNØT handlebar alone save nine watts over a more traditional round set up. Cannondale is particularly proud of the HollowGram 45 SL KNØT carbon wheels, which have an internal width of 21mm and are tubeless-ready. This width not only helps the tyre spread for greater volume and comfort but also aids aerodynamics by ensuring that the air can reattach to the rim after the tyre, lowering drag. All in all, Cannondale claim that at 48kph an incredible 30 watts have been saved over the outgoing model.
Complementing Cannondale’s frame is Shimano’s top drawer Dura-Ace Di2 Disc 11-speed groupset. With shifts being actuated at the lightest touch of a button, all energy can be concentrated on pushing down on the pedals, whilst the hydraulic brakes also work with the minimum of effort to slow things down even on the wettest of days. The HollowGram SiSL2 crankset comes with a pre-installed power2max NG Eco Power Meter that simply needs activating (at extra cost) to help improve training and riding.
