Hill climb events are notorious for their weight-weenie builds and none took that further than Paul Roby with his Cannondale SuperSix Evo. The full build came in at a staggering 4.56kg, one of the very few to break the 5kg mark on the day.
Roby’s SuperSix Evo features Ciamillo Lekki 8 carbon brake calipers and Lightweight Gipfelsturm carbon wheels (great for shaving the grams though it would’ve been a slippery ride back down).
Roby had planned to use a full Darimo cockpit for the race but, as sometimes happens with such marginal builds, tragedy struck and his Darimo stem broke just weeks before the event, forcing him to swap in a Deda alloy alternative.
Considering the change, not to mention the bar tape which is almost unheard of on such light builds, we have to wonder – just how light could this bike be next year?
Carbon Ciamillo Lekki 8 brake calipers – the stuff of weight-weenie legend.
