Cannondale's SuperSix EVO brings a whole new meaning to the word fast. This thoroughbred boasts a BallisTec carbon frame and fork that work in perfect harmony to bring your riding and racing to the next level. From aerodynamic touches like narrower down and top tubes plus slimmer fork blades, to compliance zones that damp vibration and boost speed, to specifically tuned high-strength, high-modulus fibers that enhance strength and stiffness, the EVO is one of the quickest, most-responsive and best-handling bikes the peloton has ever seen. For even more speed, it comes spec'd with zippy Mavic Ksyriums, SRAM's WorldTour-proven Red group and a spread of FSA's featherweight, podium-ready components.

i am 17 and have been riding for 3 years now. i got my evo about 2 months ago and absolutely love it!! in one word, this bike is FAST. even at the lights ive raced a porsche and was able to see his shocked face when he had to stick to the speed limit and i kept on peddling. it really puts a smile on my face. but this bike shines on the mountains. i live on a mountain and my weekly ride (when i dont have hw) is up to mt [...], about 3 or 4000 ft of climbing. it is just fast. now a few cons... ive done 3 centuries and 900+ miles on my evo with the given saddle (Fizik Antares)and have never found a comfortable position. also, within the first week, the front derailleur (sram red) would push the chain off and would have problems pushing it back up to the 50. i tuned it endlessly and havent had any more problems. just a heads up; make sure you properly have it tuned. its touchy and the material is so thin and light that it doesnt have the same power as the lower grade sram force or rival front derailleurs. ive heard some have just swapped the front derailleurs because the red derailleur is too flimsy. i still have my full red group. it just needs some fine tuning is all. overall, i have no regrets. the only problem now is that i dont always have the legs that this bike needs to go supersonic speeds. its comfortable, fast, superlight, a great price, and not too terrible in the aesthetics. the only bike that i know that can rival the supersix evo is maybe a pinarello dogma 2, wilier zero.7, s-works venge/tarmac sl4, or a cervelo r5ca. and with those, your easily spending a hefty load.
"Eager" is the term that comes to mind when describing this bike. Capable is another. In 40 years of enthusiastic road riding, racing, long rides, etc, I've never been on a bike that wanted to GO more than the EVO. It blends superb handling, light weight and great components into a superior riding experience. For a race bike, the ride is fairly smooth and enjoyable over a long haul. This bike won't beat you up. I'm using Dura-Ace road tubeless some of the time and they make the ride even smoother, without sacrificing performance. Cannondale hit the bulls-eye with the EVO. A great choice.
