As a Cannondale SuperSix evangelist I shouldn't like the new SuperSix should I? To be honest, I didn't at first, but as the weeks went by I slowly started taking a liking to it despite originally telling my club mates I'd never ride one, let alone bring one into my home. Visually, the new SuperSix goes against everything the original stood for; eschewing the classic profile and round-tubed frame for contemporary shapes. 

The previous-generation SuperSix served a definitive purpose. It was light, frighteningly fast and agile - a weapon of mass reduction if you will, but with every passing year, it quickly began to show its age - particularly in the professional rungs. And while Cannondale seemed set on keeping with the old recipe - applying upgrades here and there to keep it somewhat relevant - it was eventually forced to apply the aero treatment to its most celebrated road weapon.
