Summary of Reviews

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

15 reasons to buy

  • The UCI-legal SuperSix EVO SE is ready to race gravel.
  • Reviewers say the SuperSix EVO SE is playful on singletrack and "a rocket" on packed gravel.
  • This bike is available with SRAM Rival eTap AXS (SE) or Shimano GRX 800/600 (SE 2).
  • Experts highlight the comfort and traction of the 40mm Vittoria Terreno tires.
  • The handling is "intuitive" and "very balanced," according to reviewers.
  • Testers say the frame, tires, and HollowGram KNØT seatpost filter out vibrations and small impacts.
  • Experts appreciate having plenty of clearance for mud and debris or tires up to 45mm.
  • Testers say the gearing suits everything from aggressive off-road climbs to long, fast descents.
  • Reviewers relish the "great" agility afforded by the short wheelbase and steep head-tube angle.
  • Experts say the "bomb-proof" DT Swiss CR 1600 SPLINE wheels are the ideal width for gravel tires.
  • The SuperSix SE has a "road bike feel" on tarmac, with the tires and aero helping to maintain speed.
  • Experts say this bike smashes flowing trails while also handling technical sections.
  • Riders praise the confidence-boosting feedback through the cockpit.
  • Testers are impressed by how well this bike puts the power down, even in relatively loose terrain.
  • Cannondale's Speed Release thru-axle makes removing and refitting wheels easier and faster.

7 reasons not to buy

  • Experts feel the EVO SE is heavy for a race bike.
  • Some testers believe the SE's drivetrain and handlebars are better suited to a pure road bike.
  • Experts say the ride is a bit harsh, and the cockpit directly transmits bigger bumps.
  • Reviewers complain that the bike has road handlebars that lack flare.
  • Experts note that cyclocross-like handling may demand too much skill and involvement for some.
  • Two testers mention the exposed cables in the head tube area can interfere with pedaling.
  • Cannondale's Ai offset makes swapping wheels inconvenient and expensive as it requires bespoke wheel dish.

Bottom line

Cannondale's SuperSix EVO SE takes the famed SuperX cyclocross geometry and optimizes it for gravel racing. The bike is available with SRAM wireless (SE) or Shimano mechanical (SE 2) shifting. Agility, speed, and comfort impress. Experts relish the combination of road bike performance on pavement and the ability to attack gravel and singletrack. However, the aggressive ride and handling don't suit extended, laid-back gravel excursions. The Ai offset and lack of mounts for fenders or bags further eliminate quiver-killer aspirations. Overall, the SuperSix EVO SE is an impressive gravel racing option harboring a few potential compromises.

Head-To-Head: Cannondale SuperSix EVO CX and SE

Riders who want to focus primarily on CX… will likely be better served by the mechanical CX version… But, if electronic shifting or a 2x drivetrain is a must for you, then the SE will happily fulfill those needs.

Tester: Cannondale SuperSix EVO SE [Dutch]

Long story short: the SuperSix SE is sleek and of good quality, as we are used to from Cannondale. The only downside is that the classic handlebar is rather thin and, therefore, somewhat uncomfortable.
