2016 Cannondale SuperSIX Evo, Habit, SI and so on

Have been waiting for this since the new Specialized Tarmac came. The new Cannondale Synapse is a huge advantage compared to the old one. After Cannondale made the Evo smaller than the old SuperSIX it was talking about a stiffer frame, BB30A and all of that. The new is said to be lighter, stiffer, more aero. Lighter and stiffer is usually means weaker for crashes, like Merida for example that is both. Wonder about the new Evo when it looks like the old one:

Really interested in a good press release instead of it coming the wrong way too us. A big press release or spy photos is the thing, not good pictures without info!

But I like the grey 🙂 and some other models:

And where is the disc? I would prefer this lovely Synapse if they don’t come up with anything cooler:

Ok, I should stop being negative. Cannondale got a new cool bike in a segment they had a bit of a problem selling bikes in it seems with the Trigger. Now they introduce another AM bike with 120mm of travel called Habit:

And I think it looks good. Clean bike with great spec. Who doesn’t want the new OPI Monoring for example?

the Habit comes in some models of course:

Production models of the cool model Slate:

Cannondale is also coming with a new crankset, a cheaper non hollow version of their Hollowgram:

And they are really releasing many new things. A fatbike which I haven’t shared, but of course available with Lefty. And a couple of new wheelsets for road (they got Czero for mtb coming 2016 too):

Is there any other big brand releasing so many news in one time without huge press releases? and there is said to be a Scalpel Si built like the F-Si in the beginning of 2016

THE new Cannondale Slate

What if you took a roadbike, mounted a fork called Oliver, used 650b wheels that is the latest but 42mm tires to make it normal roadbike size. Then go out ride it everywhere. Sprint on asphalt, jump and enjoy single tracks as long as the world. What if?

Cannondale took their knowledge and mixed it together with a fun thought and came up with the Slate:

In our world when everything is about us and we want our thing, not others. We come up with odd ideas. Some just don’t care but for others they just want to coolest bike for EVERYTHING. Just ask Tim Johnson:

The Slate is an Synapse with comfortable rear end (with S.A.V.E seatpost?) but a bit longer to fit the 42mm Pacenti 650b tires. Of course with discs and of course with integrated wires. Of course also Cannondales old standard BB30 to use with their 15(?) year old Cannondale Hollowgram crankset.

In the front they tweaked a Lefty to become road compatible. 30mm of travel with PBR. Called Oliver without the twist (it’s really stiff).

Don’t know if you can call it a roadbike, nor a gravel bike and at least not a mtb.

The thing I know is that Cannondale likes to keep their standards but think outside the box.
