Product Details

2011 Cannondale SuperSix 3

Experience efficient power transfer, superior climbing ability and pinpoint handling with Cannondale's SuperSix 3. It's constructed from unidirectional carbon that's been expertly tuned for specific traits, such as stiffness in the BB30 bottom bracket area, suppleness in the seatstays to absorb road shock, and asymmetrical chainstays so that every turn of the cranks goes into forward motion. And, the carbon fork has a tapered steerer for solid sprinting and cornering. Complementing the frameset is a smooth-shifting Shimano Ultegra group with FSA carbon cranks, fast Mavic Aksium wheels, and one of the pro peloton's favorite saddles, a Fizik's Arione.

    The Supersix 3 is the most incredible road bike I have ridden to date. Fast, light, hugely responsive it has taken me from Tuesday night group rides to O-cup races. The ride is amazing, super responsive and very comfortable (much more comfort than I would have expected from a race geo). Only one complaint and that is the Tektro brakes. They work fine, don't get me wrong. I've survived more than one messy crit race thanks to the Tektros. But Ultegra would have been nicer, and it bugs me that the Synapse 3 comes with them. Truely a small issue though. I would recommend this bike to anyone who wants to race, whether beginner or vet. Could not be happier.

      My wife got me the Super 6 after I did considerable reading and trying dirfferent bikes. I did 2 triathlons this past summer and this is my bike for next year. Loved the ride and the responsiveness compared to others. One of the deciding factors was the wow factor - the Super 6 is a much greater wow when compared to otehrs. Would reccomend this bike to others and would not hesitate to get another one if the need existed.

      I ride mostly 30+ mile club rides at 20+ mph average and this bike rules! This thing glides like butter. I tried out the Trek Madone and was very dissapointed, but then I found the Supersix, WOW! This bike really has it! Don't buy a Madone or anything comparable without test riding the Supersix, you WON'T be dissapointed!

        This bike is made to go fast!!! I bought the SuperSix October'07 and have been using it for many 30+ miles training runs. It handles very well, is super light and the components are well balanced. Having made the easier transition from a mountain bike, it has been a great riding experience so far. Given the light rolling hills of the Boston area I selected the compact (34/50) crankset. It has turned out to be a good choice for my area. Unfortunately, I keep seeing this bike being advertised with a Dura-Ace rear derailleur when in fact Cannondale delivered the bike with the Ultegra derailleur. I contacted Cannondale but they only referred to their disclaimer. Disappointing! I test rode the bike against the Trek Madonne and the Cannondale SystemSix and preferred the Cannondale geometry over Trek and the full carbon of the Super Six over the Al/carbon frame of the SystemSix.
