Cannondale SuperSix EVO Hi-MOD Ultegra Di2 Disc Road Bike 2020
Offering a saving of 30 watts over its predecessor is a big claim, but that is exactly what Cannondale think that the SuperSix EVO Hi-MOD Ultegra Di2 Disc Road Bike does. The carbon frame has now been designed in the wind tunnel to offer significant aerodynamic improvements, but still retains its super lightweight status at a claimed 866 grams for a size 56. The frame now features Kamm tail style tubing and internal cabling along with dropped seatstays, and now has clearance for 30mm tyres for improved comfort and grip.
The in-house components have also been developed to be both light and fast, with the HollowGram KNØT stem and SystemBar set up alone saving nine watts over a traditional round handlebar and stem. The super wide carbon HollowGram 45 SL KNØT rims have been designed to actually be wider than the tyre as this helps the airflow to reattach to the tyre and hence reduce drag in this crucial area. The all-new carbon HollowGram 27 SL KNØT seatpost and binder allow slightly more flex than previously, whilst also improving the aerodynamics by integrating the clamp lower in the frame.
Ultegra Di2 may sit second in Shimano’s electronic groupset range, but it gives nothing away in terms of functionality to its more expensive stablemate, offering precise fingertip shifting at the touch of a button even when there is maximum pressure on the pedals. The Ultegra hydraulic brakes also provide exceptional performance with fantastic all-weather functionality that can be relied upon.
