Hi,
trying to find a top cap lower than the 25mm that comes with the 2018 superx, think it is about 55m in outer diameter someone know one that fits?

I used the cover and wedge from a Cane Creek 40-Series ZS49 ZeroStack top set and that's pretty good. About 1mm step in around the headtuve, but covers the bearing and "seals" well enough.

The top cap from cannondale part #kp058 is what you’re looking for. A bit expensive but at least you’ll have a spare headset if need be. It’s what I’m currently using and the cdale cxworld team is also using as far as I know. Perfect fit with a couple micro shims

You can also use the cap from a cannondale fat cadd. That's what i have and just slam the stem

Bumping this as I just picked up a SuperX and need to slam the stem, will be looking into the Fat CAAD and the kp058 (though would rather not have to buy a whole headset for a top cap). Does anyone know if you can use the lightweight kp017 compression wedge as well? I have one on my Supersix EVO and its been fantastic and is super light.

The Cannondale KP253 is what you're looking for to slam your stem. Worked perfectly on my CAAD12 and was much cheaper than a slamthatstem.com bearing cover.
