HEAD FOR THE HILLS
In 2007, the mountainous Giro d’Italia and the best-climber’s jersey at the Tour de France were both won on Cannondales. It is with that climbing pedigree in mind that the company launches its new SuperSix. This is the same full-carbon frame Cannondale’s top pros are on this year—with the same responsive handling and the remarkable ability to damp road chatter. The only difference? It’s hung with a mix of Dura-Ace and Ultegra, along with Mavic Ksyrium Elite wheels—more affordable but in no way down-market. Cannondale’s compact crankset rounds out the hill-gobbling package. 16.6 lbs, 56cm; cannondale.com
