Cannondale has today introduced the new SuperSix Evo Neo, an electric-assist version of the SuperSix Evo.
The SuperSix Evo Neo retains the lightweight, handling and ride feel of the original, the brand said, but with a “discreet boost that tames hills and headwinds”.
“We know that drag reduction has a huge effect on speed and performance in cycling,” said Nathan Barry, Cannondale design engineer.
“This holds true for e-road bikes as well; reducing drag makes it easier to go faster, especially once riders go above the assistance threshold.”
Highly truncated airfoil tube shapes, which can generate up to 30% less drag than a comparably sized round tube, are used throughout the frame, and system integrated components like the sleek SAVE SystemBar, KNØT stem and 27 KNØT seatpost all aid in keeping drag low and speeds high.
Cannondale paired its BallisTec carbon fibre construction with Mahle ebikemotion’s X35 world-class lightweight drive system. The SuperSix EVO Neo 1 model weighs just 11.3 kg/24.9 lbs, based on a size large. The ebikemotion drive system consists of a light, 250w rear hub motor and 250Wh battery hidden in the frame, offering three levels of ‘just right’ support up to 20 mph (US) or 25 kph (EU).
Cannondale connected technology pairs an integrated wheel sensor with the Cannondale App to deliver hyper-accurate speed, route and distance info, as well as provide curated information about the rider’s bike, send detailed service reminders and more all through their smartphone.
The SuperSix EVO Neo line-up features three disc-brake models available in sizes small, medium, and large. For more information on the all-new SuperSix EVO Neo, visit www.cannondale.com.
