The stock SuperX comes with a 35mm Schwalbe Rapid Rob mounted, so that will clear, but there's not much lateral room. Anything more than that and you're going to run into issues once it starts packing up with mud.

Haven't tried. 40mm slick maybe, but lateral clearance will probably be super tight.

40mm knobbies, doubt it.

I borrowed a 52CM and was able to fit my Clement MSO 40mm. Will clearance change on different frame size ?

Cannondale states that they always fit the widest tire possible as stock from factory.

So you should never use wider tires than those fitted to the bike when bought.

You need about 6mm clearance from tire to chainstay, you don't want tires to rub the frame (it will be damaged).

I own a 2015 56cm Super X that came with 33mm stock tires last year, I can assure you that their is MUCH more that 33mm clearance available. I will have no problem running 40's

I tried a SuperX, canti model, with 40mm Clement's MSO and rode trails. It was slightly tighter then on my Crockett. I can believe that taller knobs would touch the frame. I would put some 3M clear tape just to make sure and probably check if there was rub after a ride.

Will clearance change on different frame size ?

Does anyone know if a CAADX has similar or more clearance ?
looks like it would fit the MSO's Image

The info is avaible at Cannondale. They state that widest tire is always fitted when the bike is sold.
How hard can this be?
Is it worth risking frame?
I think you will void warranty if you decide to ignore the facts.
Personally i bought a frame clear for 40mm, but i would not buy even 42mm to try.
I would ask first if it is approved.

I think you are on the wrong forum :D. WW is about exploring the limits, and not following approved procedures and just buying what the manufacturers are pushing.
