Whether crushing the competition or going for bragging rights, Cannondale's SuperSix Evo Ultegra Di2 handles all the power you can give it. This high-performance machine boasts Cannondale's Ballistec carbon frame and fork 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 vibrations and boost speed, to specifically tuned high-strength, high-modulus fibers that maximize the strength and stiffness, the EVO is one of the quickest, most-responsive and best-handling bikes you'll ride. The super frame is complemented by Shimano's revolutionary electric-shifting Ultegra Di2 components with a stiff Cannondale Hollowgram crankset, featherweight Fulcrum Racing wheels, and a spread of Cannondale's own lightweight, podium-ready goodies plus a stellar Fizik seat.
|Cannondale's SPEED SAVE stays (left) and fork (right) create a micro suspension system that improves comfort, control, traction and handling. It allows the bike to roll faster, accelerate better and corner harder without affecting pedaling efficiency.|
When constructing their carbon frames, Cannondale uses high strength, high impact resins similar to those used in carbon baseball bats. The fibers and resins are put in a layup 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 to perfection.
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.

I really love riding this bike. Prior to purchasing the SuperSix Evo Di2, I rode an older Cannondale CAAD aluminum frame equipped with a carbon fiber fork and averaged from 200 to 300 miles per week. My arms and wrists were often sore from long rides, braking and shifting. The SuperSix Evo is so smooth that I no longer feel any pain or numbing in my arms. The shifting is flawless, a tap up or down, making it much easier to maintain cadence. The bike can accelerate in a heartbeat...and yet it delivers a surprisingly smooth ride, even on the pavés. The only downside on the bike was the stock 50 tooth chain ring which lasted just over 500 miles before wear got the best of it. The 2013 version was equipped with a 54 tooth chain ring, a better fit for top speeds. My LBS made quick work of that issue by installing an Orgin8 52 tooth sprocket chainring; problem eliminated. The stock tires, Schwalbe Ultremo's are good for top speeds, but are not the best for endurance. Save them for time trials or racing. The entire package is nice, from the handlebars to the Fizik seat.
