The chainstays are massively uneven the driveside stay features an infinitely more radical shape offsetting the drivetrain by 6mm (a design lent from Cannondale’s mix-country bikes). What this means is the trunk wheel is re-dished so runs an infinitely more even spoke tension between both drive and non-drive side.

In the seat tube/top tube/seatstay junction it appears incredibly clean, without any apparent seat clamp on show.

EVO finally will get a disc option

The SuperSix EVO Disc geometry is equivalent to the rim-brake EVO, even lower towards the 405mm chainstays. We requested Devine if he’d to utilize a devoted crank like Cérvelo or perhaps a redesigned freehub as Specialized did using the original S-Works Tarmac Disc. He responded, “No – because we designed our very own chainrings for that Si cranks, these feature less aggressive ramps and pins which, using the BB30a bottom bracket, meant we’ve got approval from Shimano and SRAM and also the shifting performance isn’t affected whatsoever.”

There’s additionally a disc brake form of the Optimo. Unlike the rim bike’s frame, which will get a typical threaded bottom bracket, the disc frame would go to a BB30, because the wider covering helps the chainline, enabling Cannondale to help keep the chainstay length shorter. Both bikes includes 25mm clinchers with wiggle room for something bigger and/or bumpers.

“We curently have the endurance-biased Synapse listed right lower to basic level, therefore we wanted something to attract the ambitious racer, or even the racer searching to have an affordable training bike, so we’ve incorporated fender mounts on the rim and disc versions from the Optimo,” Devine stated.

“We will always be searching at system weights – once we ride complete bikes it will work better,Inches Devine stated. “After researching current wheel systems we discovered that rear through-axle hubs are usually considerably heavier due to the requirement for bigger bearing. We spoke to the team mechanics and did lots of testing, and located that despite a disc wheel, rear changes continue to be faster having a standard quick release.”

The flagship Super-X carbon frame continues to be dieting just 1,000g it’s among the lightest around. It combines 12mm through-axles at both sides having a unique rear triangular configuration.

BikeRadar sitting lower with Cannondale’s global road product manager David Devine to obtain the skinny on what’s new for 2017.

Unlike the majority of the EVO’s competition, Cannondale only adopted the 12mm through-axle standard around the front the trunk has continued to be a typical quick release.

Devine and the team also looked with other components for that EVO disc, resulting in them developing their very own wheelset, that will feature on lots of models. The brand new carbon tubeless ready wheelset known as Hollowgram includes a carbon rim by having an approved-by-Stan’s inner rim profile, with size of 35mm deep, 26mm outer max width along with a wide 19mm internal spread.

The frame now features lots of clearance for 28mm tyres too. Greater-spec wheels have a greater-grade hub built-in collaboration with DT Swiss and according to its highly considered 240 hub set.

Because of its latest entry-level alloy road bikes, Cannondale has dropped the CAAD nomenclature. The brand new frame is known as Optimo, constructed with multi-butted 6061 alloy tubes. The greater-grade CAAD12, which remains within the line, uses 6069 alloy with an infinitely more obsessive method of butting.

The finish of CAAD?

“With the Optimo we attempted to really change entry-level road bikes, therefore we applied exactly the same computing and modeling technology because the CAAD12, so unlike most aluminium frames it has no crimps, dents or afterworking around the tubes,” Devin stated. “All from the tubes are created just how they’ll finally be utilized.Inches

“Courses are becoming both more technical and faster and thus we wanted a bicycle that will suit that,” Devine stated. “We developed the new progressive geometry. While other brands go longer on the top running shorter stems and slacker mind angles, they are able to suffer at reduced speeds from wheel flop in which the front finish really wants to fall during tighter turns. Our answer ended up being to combine a 71-degree mind position having a fork with 55mm offset along with a trail of 63mm — more than most — this way you receive great control of bumps and roots but nonetheless have ample speed within the steering.”

The Optimo is definitely an impressive searching bike. It’s noticeably nearer to the CAAD12 compared to outgoing, lower-finish CAAD8, with similarly flattened seat stays and sculpted chainstays.

The shift cable and hydraulic routing is internal. Steering wheel clearance is elevated to 40mm, and also the seatpost has, as isn’t surprising, switched to Cannondale’s preferred 25.4mm.

For that ’cross racers, Cannondale reworked the Super-X and CAADX with similar geometry.

The disc frame weighs in at a stated 1,370g. Prices wasn’t yet set nevertheless its likely to run inline with current CAAD8 models.

“We’ve developed a wedge clam that sits forward and within the publish, and thus there aren’t any difficulties with adjustment or maintenance we set the clamp secure in a 45-degree position so its easily accessible with a large T-bar hex key,’ Devine stated.

Although it might appear Cannondale is behind the bend with dvds around the EVO, Devine argues that Cannondale experienced the street disc game in the past.

Cyclocross revolution

“We needed to make certain the EVO disc rode how an EVO should, to ensure that meant brand-new designs and conforms for each area of the frame and fork. Our key objectives was to obtain an EVO disc that’s easily underneath the UCI’s 6.8kg limit.”

For 2017, Cannondale has added a hydraulic disc choice for its top-finish road race SuperSix EVO, completely redesigned its cyclocross choices, and released a brand new entry-level alloy bicycle known as the Optimo constructed with training learnt in the award-winning CAAD12.

The new SuperX team, is as good as the cross range gets, with new progressive geometry, SRAM Force 1, Zipp 303 tubulars and a &ampeuro6599 price tag (US,UK, Aus price TBC)

The brand new SuperX team, is just like the mix range will get, with new progressive geometry, SRAM Pressure 1, Zipp 303 tubulars along with a €6599 cost tag (US,United kingdom, Aus cost TBC)

“We really adopted dvds early, beginning using the CAAD10 disc in 2014, alongside Synapse disc and also in 2015 the CAAD12 disc,” Devin stated. “We wanted the additional benefits of dvds for EVO, that being control and consistency, but we couldn’t compromise exactly what the EVO is.” He added that low weight, stiffness and luxury are key targets for that EVO bikes.

The conventional Hollowgram wheelset tips the scales in an impressive 1,400g some.

The CAADX mirrors the Super-X’s geometry, and also the tubing was created consistent with CAAD12 and Optimo. Unlike the Super-X it will get a standard seat clamp (though still 25.4) and exterior cable routing. For any wider appeal the CAADX will get rack and fender mounts therefore it should continue being a commuter-cum-weekend-warrior’s go-to.

What exactly may be the difference with regards to the scales? Well, the disc model weighs in at 829g (56cm) for that frame and 360g for that fork, so when you are taking the machine weight (using the devoted 25.4mm publish and SiSL crank) it’s a problem of just 120g.

Such as the EVO, Synapse and CAAD12, the Optimo has additionally switched to some 25.4mm diameter seatpost for that extra comfort it brings.

Unlike that old CAAD8, the Optimo’s geometry relies round the race-biased form of the CAAD12.
