CANNONDALE SUPERSIX ADDS DISC FOR 2017
As the 2017 bike and product announcements continue, Cannondale is the latest company to announce their latest tech with the full line of SuperSix bikes, which now include disc and rim brake versions. Two frame levels will be available, the SuperSix EVO Hi-MOD and SuperSix EVO Carbon. SuperSix EVO Hi-MOD Disc will be available in two men’s models and one women’s model while SuperSix EVO Carbon will be available in six men’s models, four rim and two disc, as well as four women’s models. Prices have not yet been announced.
“Cannondale is constantly searching for performance advantages that we can offer to riders and we are excited to introduce disc brakes to our elite road race bikes,” said Scott Rittschof, Senior Vice President of Global Marketing and Product Development. “Disc brakes offer more consistent braking in all conditions, particularly in wet weather, and overall a much better braking experience.”
The disc models use integrated flat-mount disc brake system with a 12mm front thru-axle and internal cable routing on both the frame and fork. A redesigned SPEED SAVE Micro-Suspension delivers more compliance from the frame and fork for cornering, comfort and control. Subtle TAP (Truncated Aero Profile) tube shapes in the frame and fork reduce drag and improve aero efficiency.
