This one is a bit special. Cannondale might be more of a mass market brand than some we stock but many of us have soft spot for them based on their early use of oversized aluminium with smooth-filed welds. It was a unique look at the time. Technology has moved on but Cannondale's carbon frames retain clean, simple, lines that have their origins in those old alloy bikes. While the Supersix tubes have a subtle "truncated aero profile" the overall look is quite conventional.
The Supersix is Cannondale's race all rounder. Available in various versions the Evo Black Inc sits right at the top of the range. The highest quality "ballistec" carbon (using technologies from body armour) with a mix of hi-mod and continuous fibres to tune different parts of the frame. Each framesize has a unique layup to ensure consistent ride quality across the range and frame stiffness optimised for stiffness without chatter.
The focus with this model is on weight with the lightest possible parts used throughout - Shimano Dura Ace gearing, Cannondale's own carbon cranks, an Enve seatpost. We added the Lightweight Meilenstein wheelset we have in stock and the bike tipped the scales at just 5.8kg in the 60cm size we've got in stock. Impressive.

When it comes to buying your new bike there are so many different options when it comes to spec choice that it can be quite the minefield. Bicycle gearing is perhaps the biggest and most complicated one of those mines with different brands, all with different groupsets, all at different speeds,mechanical or electronic, etc - if you don't already know the key differences between groupsets then it's easy to get lost. In this blog we strip back those complexities and offer a simple and basic guide to modern bicycle gearing.
Trek are a huge company, both on the high street and in the peloton. Given the size of the company they naturally produce a huge and diverse collection of bicycles across almost all disciplines. In this blog we're going to take a quick look at the three main offerings they have for road cycling; the Madone, Domane, and Emonda.
