CANNONDALE LAUNCHES NEW GRAVEL & CROSS BIKES

With the introduction of the SuperSix Evo CX and SuperSix Evo SE, for 2022  Cannondale is clearly out to prove that they have not forsaken the design and performance elements that have helped deliver their winning cyclocross and gravel legacy with the likes of riders  Stephen Hyde and Ted King.

Press Release

CANNONDALE SUPERSIX EVO CX

The Cannondale SuperSix EVO CX was designed to serve the needs of the CX race category and the riders in this category that are focused on speed and ultimate performance in race settings. We merged DNA and learnings from the SuperX and EVO platforms by focusing on technology like aerodynamics, serviceability and the pursuit of speed. The EVO CX is the natural evolution of our purebred road racing platform.

Design inspiration: While the SuperX remained a success and was loved by many, we wanted to push the boundaries of performance further—how can we make this bike faster, lighter and how do save minutes and watts with no expense to weight? The answer was bringing the EVO platform (one of the lightest aero road race bikes in the world) to CX.

TECH NOTES

Clearance: 13mm per side with UCI legal 33m tires means less muck, yuck and stopping=more speed (can take up to 45mm for non-race scenarios)
Aerodynamics: proven aero tube profiles deliver an extra dose of speed nearly as fast as road race SuperSix EVO
Carbon frameset identical to road EVO geo with SRAM Force 1 11-speed drivetrain
SRAM Force 1 hydraulic disc brakes/ HollowGram KNOT Seatpost
Short chainstays offer explosive power and grip. Our OutFront front end offers low-speed agility and high-speed stability. Stiff rear.
Sizes: 46, 51, 54, 56, 58
Wheel/Tire Size: 700c x 33
Color: Purple Haze
Price: $4,000 USD

CANNONDALE EVO SE

The Cannondale EVO SE was designed to serve the needs of the growing gravel race category and the riders in this category that are focused on speed and ultimate performance in race settings. This is an evolved race bike ready for the rough and tumble of grass crits, mud ruts or open gravel tracks.

We merged DNA from the SuperX and EVO platforms by focusing on technology like aerodynamics, integration and the pursuit of speed in order to bring them to gravel. With the Cannondale EVO SE, we now offer gravel bike options in the fun, adventure-seeking platform that Topstone is and the race-focused, podium-driven platform that the Cannondale EVO SE is.

TECH NOTES

Clearance: Enormous clearance lets you run tires up to 45mm wide for maximum traction, comfort, and flat resistance.

Aerodynamics: proven aerodynamic tube profiles deliver an extra dose of speed with less effort. This bike is nearly as fast as the road race SuperSix EVO.
