Climb Any Mountain

The only difference between this frame and the one Cannondale's pros are racing in Europe is the carbon fiber. The SuperSix 3, built up with Shimano Ultegra components, uses a less expensive weave, but the molds are the same. Given that, we were expecting it to handle like a twitchy racer. Oh, no. "Predictable and confident," said one tester. "Holds its line instinctively." Our only gripe: The 44-centimeter bars felt too wide for our 56-centimeter bike, though the added leverage helped in the hills. "One of the best climbers I rode," wrote one tester. "I was very comfortable throwing it from side to side." 15.7 lbs (56 cm);
Handling: 4.3
Responsiveness: 4.1
