Can anyone confirm if the 2015 model year CAAD10 ultegra is going to be specced with a Hollowgram SI crankset?

Just had my 2013 CAAD10 Rival stolen last night and I'd like to replace it with one specced with Ultegra 6800, and if the 2015 MY model is going to come with a Si crankset as is listed on some non-us sites, I'd prefer to wait a little bit for that then the current model with SL-K crankset.

Thanks.

It looks like the Ultegra version for 2015 does.

tinozee, that chart is for Cannondale Europe. I believe the OP was asking about USA spec since he referenced seeing that chart for non-US countries.

The U.S. dealer book I looked at has Si crank

Oh weird I didn't realize there were different specs. I wish they would make some better paint jobs, the 2015 paint is terrible aside from the disc version.

Si crank, unlike SL is unlikely to be better than SL-K unless you just want changeable spiders...

The FSA SL-K Light carbon BB30 weighs around 700g.

The Cannondale Hollowgram Si weighs around 600g.

I'd go with the Hollowgram Si if the price is equal.

My SLK is 609 grams 52/36

My Si that came with my Evo was 612 grams 50/34

Give me my SLK that requires one normal tool and perfect chain line any day.

When did the SL-K Light drop the weight. Last I remember it was in the 700g's.

@52x12 - the latest generation ... Well before the 2015 morph to 4 ring bolts. I reweighed the cranks before posting.
