Cannondale's SuperSix EVO Red Racing is built for one thing - speed. This thoroughbred racer boasts a BallisTec carbon frame and fork that work in perfect harmony to bring your riding and racing to the next level. From aerodynamic touches like narrower down and top tubes and slimmer fork blades, to compliance zones that damp vibration and boost speed, to specifically tuned high-strength, high-modulus fibers that enhance strength and stiffness, the EVO is one of the quickest, most-responsive and best-handling bikes the peloton has ever seen. The parts spec is equally fixated on speed with blazing fast Vision carbon wheels, SRAM's WorldTour-proven Red group and a spread of Cannondale's own featherweight, podium-ready components.
When constructing their carbon fiber frames, Cannondale uses high strength, high impact resins similar to those used in carbon baseball bats. The fibers and resins are put in a lay-up designed to maximize the anisotropic (direction specific) qualities, making for a bike that is light and stiff, and capable of absorbing impact without damaging the structural integrity. Once the frame has passed quality testing, Cannondale adds stiffer, higher-modulus fibers in safe areas to increase stiffness and tune the ride.
|Cannondale's SPEED SAVE rear stays (left) and fork (right) create a micro suspension system that allows the bicycle’s wheels to track the ground, improving comfort, control, traction and handling. This allows the bike to roll faster, accelerate better and corner harder without affecting pedaling efficiency.|
For increased stiffness and improved steering precision, tapered head tubes (see image, on left) and forks pair an oversize lower steerer tube (usually 1 1/2-inch, see image, on right) with a standard diameter upper steerer tube (usually 1 1/8-inch). This combination sheds weight compared to straight 1 1/2-inch systems, and adds stability and stiffness when compared to straight 1 1/8-inch systems. The result is a bike that tracks better through corners while allowing for the use of standard stems.
BB30 is an oversize bottom bracket standard that boosts stiffness and decreases weight. BB30 bottom bracket bearings are pressed directly into compatible frames, meaning there are no heavy external cups to thread in. And, BB30 cranksets feature 30mm-diameter spindles (standard spindles are smaller) for greater pedaling efficiency and increased power transfer.
