It's in the descriptions of the parts under each of the SuperSix EVO models

Nice, hi-mod says it's stiffer/lighter/di2/mech option, better colour options, that Blue is nice.

Hoping they will keep the price sensible for f&f.

EDIT: OMG SUPERSIX EVO DISC!! But there's nothing about those models in the pictures!

So am I reading this right that they will have a proprietary seatpost diameter?

That seems to be the case... Im guessing they have FSA on board, doubtful many other manufactures will add that option of Cannondale is the only one who specs it. FUN.

Pdf images show 2015 external cabling but photos of frames show internal.

Not technically proprietary but just an uncommon diameter. I'm not pleased by the lack of options for probably zero benefit. FSA and Thomson were the only higher end seat posts I found when I was looking for a new post for a Synapse.

Hmm the stack is a tad (6mm) taller on the new hi-mod evo and the caad12 in my size (58). Regular mod is the old geo. No big deal really, maybe due to new fork.

Overall this is a pretty cool set of updates. I most like the new yellow Caad12 disc and the neon orange FSI!

Regarding the seatpost, I think it is the same as the Synapse post which is 25.4 which isn't proprietary per se, but is just not common at the high end. It is actually a really common size on older road bikes from the 70s and 80s from before over sized tubing came into vogue. They spec it for the increased compliance because, as we know from Josh at Silca, riders supposedly can't determine the actual vertical stiffness of a frame other then in regard to seat post compliance. On MTBs with more extension they can still get the compliance they want while sticking with a more common (larger) diameter, but with the shorter extension of road posts they had to down size them.

I would really wish that a SuperX was di2 compatible.

Is it just me, or do the photos in the dealer book make the new Evo, and particularly the CAAD12 look a bit less "muscular" than their forebears? Tube shapes seem a lot slimmer to my eye.

Is that a fluo-red one on the pedestal? And it seems all the SuperSix EVOs will be equipped with spiderrings now. That is a very welcome change. Looks much better than the FSA chainrings.


Yeah but they need to get w/ the times and do a 52/36


They have, according to the dealer book.

Definitely not just you. To my eyes the fork is the part which looks the most slimmed down.

I don't see the point in this bike.
