For sheer speed, The Cannondale SystemSix has few equals.

 

It took almost 4 years to develop the SystemSix machine, ensuring no stone was left unturned in the development of this world-beater. Cannondale knew the SystemSix needed to be a better bike everywhere -in all aspects of cycling- not just in a wind tunnel. Although the sleek lines of the SystemSix series get it labeled as an "aero road" bike, there's much more to it. They don't sacrifice ride quality. They don't add pounds to go faster on the flats. They don't hammer the fillings out of your teeth on day-long training rides. The SystemSix is a better bike for everywhere on the road, even when the road itself has seen better days.

 

Cannondale's BallisTec carbon fiber is used throughout the SystemSix Ultegra's frame, keeping weight very low. How low? 1061 grames for a 56cm frame, including paint. The frame's aero shaping was tested during countless hours spent in the San Diego Low Speed Wind Tunnel, coming out on top of a 10-bike aero road "shootout". The obsessive approach to reducing drag and weight at the same time had the design team at Cannondale working overtime, looking at every detail that could make a difference. The Cannondale KNØT seatpost, normally an unheralded bike component, was reprofiled for reducing turbulence created by the rider, not just a theoretical headwind. By blending the fork crown into the head tube and down tube, the SystemSix reduces drag at a critical point on the bike. The head tube is tapered from 1-1/8"-to-1-1/4", keeping a knife-edge profile aimed into the wind while still enhancing torsional strength. Internal cable routing also cleans up the airflow. Even water bottles weren't forgotten about, with multiple bottle cage mounts on the SystemSix's down tube for optimum drag reduction. TIres are getting wider all the time, adding better ride quality to any bike that can accept larger sizes. The SystemSix can accept tires up to 28mm, giving a smoother ride over every mile.

 

Shimano's updated 11-speed Ultegra components equip the SystemSix, boasting precision operation, light weight and long service life. The dual-control Ultegra levers feature an adjustable reach for smaller hands, while the lever hoods have been reshaped and textured for improved comfort. The front Ultegra derailleur operates with a toggle-pivot design, making shifts to the large chainring much easier. The Shadow-style Ultegra rear derailleur allows up to a 30T large cog for hilly terrain. An alloy Cannondale HollowGram Si crankset boasts 52/36T chainrings for high speeds, while a Shimano 105 11-30T cassette brings a wide gearing range to the party. Shimano's Ultegra hydraulic disc brakes are installed in flat-mount hardpoints, reducing weight and improving lever feedback in all conditions, rain or shine.

 

Rolling stock consists of alloy Fulcrum Racing 400 DB wheels with 35mm deep rims and 24 stainless steel spokes front and rear, offering light weight and an aero profile that compliments the SystemSix. Wrapped with Vittoria's Rubino Pro Speed 700x26c tires, this wheelset is race-ready for criteriums, road races and gran fondos alike. A Prologo Dimension saddle sits atop the aformentioned blade-style carbon fiber KNØT aero seatpost, while an alloy Vision TriMax OS stem and Vision Metron 4D Flat carbon fiber road handlebar complete this outstanding speed machine.
