There's one common line that seems to get rolled out whenever a new, cool, fast, sleek, black bike is released... 'If Batman rode a bike, this would be it!'... Well, if his alter ego, billionaire playboy Bruce Wayne rode a bike, the Cannondale Supersix Evo Black Inc. Edition would definitely be it!
This bike has sophistication written all over it, and the performance to match. It is pitched as the perfect balance of light weight, stiffness, strength, handling, aerodynamics and compliance but just looks so cool. The geometry is old school, not trying too hard to be something it's not, and the finishing kit is remarkable... ENVE Smart 34.5 Clinchers with Chris King R45 hubs and comes with a 52/36 SpideRing chain ring set, the perfect balance for the hills and the flats.
The matte black finish accompanied with black wheels, black bar tape and basically black everything else, brings out the golden decals that scream luxury. Even the dead straight and flat crank arms of the Cannondale HollowGram SiSL2 are a thing of beauty.
Although the frame comes in three different options, the EVO Nano is the way to go. It is the lightest of the frames and utilises advanced high modulus BallisTec Construction and nano tech resins for maximum weight savings. All that means is the frame is feather light... 655 grams light! The total build is in the vicinity of 5.2 kg for a 56 cm frame!
To aid compliance there are subtle flex zones in the chain stays, seat stays and seat tube. That will only come in handy if you can get it up to top speed, which might prove difficult with people constantly wanting you to slow down so they can get a good look.
For being so ridiculously ridiculously good looking, the Cannondale Supersix Evo Black Inc. edition makes the top 5 of 2016 bikes.
