Found this while looking through the 2020 Dealer Book that was just added to Cannondale's B2B. Still not actually on the site at all for purchasing. Looks to be like the Supersix in terms of shapes, and also mostly disc models except for a 105 rim. No word on pricing yet.

Looks like there's a rim brake model with Ultegra too.

I wonder who made the design/color decisions for the Topstone Carbon, SSEVO, and the CAAD13.
I wonder if they're color blind or something. My as well just post black and white pictures

Agreed, very monotone and minimalist. Don't get me wrong they aren't bad but like wtf Cannondale c'mon even the 2020 SystemSix isn't good

Would be tough to be the design team right now...they're getting slammed everywhere.

I really like the minimal look.

Beats my old caad9 with 4 different colours and Cannondale branding on every spare piece of real estate.

Did someone order too much black paint?

i'm actually good with the minimalist writing, WAY better than a few years ago where 3/4 of the surface area was covered by the word "Cannondale"

My concern is with the absolutely drab, boring colors. everything is basically a shade of gray

I think the colours of System Six are ok, an improvement over last year. The Caad 13 colours are also OK. But the design of the Caad 13 is just bad, really a single colour would have sufficed, rather than the miscellaneous bands.

Im keen to see a Caad13 in the flesh. I hope it turns out to be a bonafide racers tool.

Last year they had the purple/violet frameset and didn't advertise its existence at all. Still puzzled by that.

I hope they follow the likes of other manufacturers (BMC, Canyon, Trek, Specialized) and off a team edition painted bike.

I think the EF team bikes with the purple/pink/black are some of the nicest in the peloton.

2020 Systemsix comes in the EF team colours (Ultegra di2 I think?), also the purple CAAD12 was super nice, unfortunately, they were out of stock very quickly on the B2B.

Then I was pretty lucky. I contacted Cannondale germany and they told me they still had one CAAD12 deep purple, size 50 frame in-house. Is already on it's way to by bike dealer :-)
