While the growth of available product for women in the bicycling industry is evident there are two key area’s lacking, high end mountain and road product. It takes a bold company, with a strong belief in women, to invest in product with a high price tag for women. Cannondale is doing it with their SuperSix Evo Hi-MOD. Available in SRAM Red, Shimano Dura Ace and Ultegra Di2. I recently took delivery of the Shimano Dura Ace model and will be putting it through some abuse to see if the $6600 road bike is for you.
Cannondale SuperSix Evo Women’s Hi-MOD Dura Ace
MSRP: $6600 Sizes: 44, 48, 51, 54, 56 Details: Geometry is based on front stack height (how tall the front end is), Shimano Dura Ace through out other than the Cannondale Hollowgram SI cranks. Wheels/Tires are from Mavic.
Initial Out of the Box Thoughts
The bike is gorgeous in a subtle “I’m chic” kinda way. It doesn’t scream that it is for women, but it has the details that matter. For example a Fizik Donna saddle, FSA Pro-Wing Compact (less drop and comfortable), and a reasonable length stem on a 54cm. An initial review will be up in a few weeks! Learn more on Cannondale.com.
