This top of the range build features fast, electronic shifting, with SRAM's flagship RED eTap AXS groupset, and uses Cannondale's Hi-MOD carbon fibre for the ultimate in lightweight and comfort.

  • Fast, just got faster: A pure road bike. Light, smooth and ultra fast. The evolution of the classic race machine.
  • Where it thrives: In competition, the open road, up and down hills
  • What it's built for: Speed, agility, handling

30 watts. That's how much power the drag-reducing tube shapes and integrated design of the new SuperSix EVO saves over the prior version at 30 mph (48.3 km/h).

The lightest disc brake road frameset we've ever made. The new SuperSix EVO is ready to throw down when the grade goes up.

Racy geometry and stiffness for explosive speed. Better micro-suspension and big tire clearance for surprising smoothness. It all adds up to precise handling and a ride-feel that's out of sight.
