With its BallisTec carbon construction, the SuperX is lighter than most road bikes, unmatched in stiffness-to-weight and smoother than a Belgian beer. Nothing will accelerate faster, corner harder or be easier to shoulder than the SuperX.

“THE ALL NEW SUPERX THOROUGHLY IMPRESSES NOT ONLY IN TERMS OF HANDLING BUT ALSO VERSATILITY” - CX MAGAZINE

INSANE TRACTION—WITHOUT COMPROMISE:  Proprietary Ai off set drivetrain delivers super short chainstays for climb-winning traction and agile handling, with huge clearance for tyres and mud.

“BEST OF BOTH” HANDLING:  OutFront steering geometry offers stability for technical descents but maintains agility
everywhere else. Just what you need for today’s ‘cross courses.

FEATHER LIGHT. ULTRA STIFF:  BallisTec Carbon Construction, System Integrated cranksets, and Ai even-dish rear wheels deliver chart topping stiffness and incredibly light weight. Wicked to sprint, easy to shoulder.

MASSIVE CLEARANCE:  The clearance offered by the Ai rear end means you can run up to 40c tyres, or pit less than the other guys in muddy conditions.

SMOOTH AS A BELGIAN BEER:  Redesigned SPEED SAVE features in the rear triangle and fork lets you track through the rough stuff and keep the power down on climbs.The ultimate race weapon for those who live to battle it out in the mud, the sand and the glorious frozen grime of cyclocross.

2017 Cannondale SuperX

BALLISTEC CARBON:  BallisTec is Cannondale's proprietary method of high-strength, high-stiffness carbon construction. It is the ideal blend of the most advanced materials in the world combined with the most advanced carbon engineering and design. The results speak for themselves.  It enables Cannondale to push the boundaries of light weight while tightly controlling the frame's overall stiffness and ride feel on bikes like the new SuperSix EVO, new SuperX and Synapse.

It starts with a base structure composed of ultra-strong fibres like those used for military ballistic armouring, and high-strength, high-impact resins similar to what is used in the construction of carbon baseball bats; light, stiff and designed to endure thousands of deformation cycles.

Cannondale then combine these fibres and this resin in a lay-up designed to maximize the anisotropic (direction-specific) qualities of the fibres in a carbon structure that is extremely light, extremely stiff and capable of withstanding high loads without damage or loss of structural integrity, and ensures that they are up to the rigors of real-world riding.

To tune the overall stiffness and ride-feel of the frame, Cannondale strategically add the stiffer, but more brittle higher modulus fibres to create an interconnected network of stiffening fibres throughout the frame. This allows them to precisely tune in different amounts of stiffness and deflection at different points throughout the frame, creating an unbelievably balanced and nuanced ride.

SPEED SAVE VIBRATION ELIMINATION TECHNOLOGY: The chain stays and seat stays on the SuperX feature Cannondale's trademark SPEED SAVE technology. Flattened cross-sections and sophisticated carbon layup allows the SPEED SAVE features to act like a micro-suspension system, deflecting vertically to absorb trail shock and vibration, while staying extremely rigid laterally for power transfer and confident cornering.

TAPERED HEAD TUBE: The tapered, oversized head tube houses a 1-1/8" to 1-1/4" tapered carbon steerer fork for the best blend of lateral and torsional rigidity and light weight.  Interchangeable in-headtube cable guides hold the housing securely
and support every possible cable configuration.

DISC BRAKES: Now featuring the superior all-weather power and modulation of hydraulic disc brakes. In addition to providing great braking and tons of mud clearance, they also allow Cannondale's frame designers to engineer in more compliance in the rear stays.  142x12mm rear and 100x12mm front thru-axles keep everything stiff and solid under hard braking.
