Cannondale’s much-teased, fourth-generation SuperSix EVO headlines with claims of improved aerodynamics and lower weight, while also promising a more user-friendly design.
At 770g for the new, top-tier Lab71 frame, it’s the lightest SuperSix EVO ever. As for aerodynamics, Cannondale claims the new EVO is 12 watts more efficient at 45kph than the previous-generation bike.
Take a quick look at the new bike and, at first glance, it doesn’t look very different from the third generation.
However, as we predicted , the new design also brings a return to a threaded bottom bracket and up-to-date tyre clearances.
While the frame shape has changed subtly, it shares the EVO 3’s geometry, mirrors its head tube and bottom bracket stiffness figures, and offers the same compliance through the rear end, according to Cannondale.
All told, it’s a bike with big boots to fill. The third generation of Cannondale’s all-round race bike arrived in 2020 as a radical redesign, introducing aero tubes to what was previously a round-tubed bike focused primarily on lightweight comfort. The result was a bike that won our Road Bike of the Year award back in 2020 . New Cannondale SuperSix EVO | What you need to know
