I got hold of my new frame set roughly two weeks ago........
I was rode a 2010 supersix ultimate for two years prior to this update and they are a quite different;
Now I'm no review expert but i will try and relay my interpretation as best i can. I have swapped everything from my old supersix, the only two components i changed was the front mech (clamp to braze) and the seat post from 31.6cm to 27.2cm.
The new evo is much much more comfortable in terms of soaking up road buzz. I find that it really smooths out any sharp vibrations and dulls minor vibration through the bars and seat. I dont know how much of this attributed to the decrease in seat post diameter or the "save" technology in the chain and seat says, but who cares it works! Another assumption of soaking up road buzz and sharp vibration from hitting imperfections in the road could be from the fork "save technology".
Handling and stability:
I find that the evo is less stable/solid in the front end, it feels like i have to hang onto the front much more than the old supersix. It feels much more twitchy, not in the steering but in the stability which is not a bad thing just different. The new supersix has the same confidence inspiring handling when entering corners at high speeds and tracks like it is on rails.
I don't know how much of this is new bike bliss but i have set PB's on all of my usual rides and feel really much fresher afterwards.
That's about as much as i can elaborate at this point as it is still early days (800km) but i will update as i do more km's and start racing at my local crit in the new year.
I haven't got decent scales so this is going by my shitty old bathroom scales: 6.2kg as pictured (size 56). I will get down to the bike shop and weigh it properly soon.
Just for reference this is my old ride:
