SuperSix Evo 1 Dura Ace

BEST FOR: The weight-obsessed. THE TEST: Bucking the aero trend—at least for now—Cannondale pushes the light-to-stiff equation of standard tubing to the limits with the two-pound frame of the Evo. How light is that? This fourth-tier model, with middle-of-the-road Mavic Ksyrium SL wheels and impressive but not superlight Dura Ace components, was still the lightest bike we rode this year. Yet it never felt flimsy or whippy, even on technical mountain descents. And climbing was laughably easy, though a couple bigger testers felt a slight bottom-bracket flex when they really torqued. The most common remark: “I’d buy this bike.” THE VERDICT: They should have called it the Helium—try not to chuckle when you float away from your buddies. 13.9 lbs
