Summary of Reviews

We have read all expert and user reviews on the Cannondale SuperSix EVO CX. In summary, this is what cyclists think.

15 reasons to buy

  • The SuperSix EVO CX is UCI-legal and ready to compete in cyclocross.
  • Testers relish the blend of fast steering and stable handling, thanks to the OutFront geometry's long fork offset and slack head angle.
  • The EVO CX boasts huge mud clearance and has room for tires up to 50mm, according to experts.
  • The Speed Release thru-axles make removing and replacing wheels quicker and simpler.
  • The geometry shifts rider weight rearwards for lighter steering, excellent front-end flow over bumps, and easier descents.
  • Reviewers say the HollowGram KNØT seatpost and compliance from the frame and tires provide above-average comfort.
  • Testers praise the "outstanding" grip and speed of the Vittoria Terreno Mix tires.
  • Reviewers say the "reliable" SRAM Force 1×11 drivetrain is "perfect" for a CX race bike.
  • Testers say the bike's performance is "excellent" in steep and aggressive terrain.
  • Experts think the EVO CX would make a perfect fast gravel bike with bigger tires fitted.
  • Reviewers agree this bike responds superbly to hard pedaling due in part to the short chainstays.
  • Testers are impressed by how this bike rockets up climbs and down descents.
  • On tarmac, the EVO CX offers the "intuitive and responsive" behavior of a good road bike.
  • The wheels and tires are tubeless-ready and easy to set up tubeless, in one reviewer's experience.
  • Experts appreciate the near-total absence of toe overlap, even in smaller frame sizes.

9 reasons not to buy

  • Some testers are disappointed to see mechanical shifting at this price point.
  • Performance is slightly hindered by the "heavy" stock wheels and their "average" hubs and spokes.
  • Several reviewers find the exposed cables hit their knees while pedaling.
  • Though the SuperSix EVO CX is almost ready for gravel, the wheels' 20mm internal width is too narrow for proper gravel tires.
  • The Ai rear dropout spacing makes swapping wheels more onerous and expensive.
  • The Ai offset also limits the options for replacing the stock crankset or swapping to 2x gearing for gravel.
  • Some reviewers noted creaks from the press-fit bottom bracket. One complains of 'moans' from the seatpost.
  • A tester notes that the Terreno Mix tires wear quickly.
  • The long wheelbase and slack head angle demand slightly more steering input in tight corners than some competitors, such as the Canyon Inflite.

Bottom line

The SuperSix EVO CX updates Cannondale's venerable SuperX cyclocross champion, retaining the proven geometry with only a tiny change to seat angle. Experts agree the SuperSix EVO CX is a fast, fun, and highly capable cyclocross bike that also makes an excellent fast gravel steed. However, serious competitors will need to budget for a wheel upgrade. The potential costs of Ai offset also need to be considered. Overall, the EVO CX is seen as an excellent option for cyclocross racers that, though not a true quiver-killer, can handle road and gravel riding with aplomb.
