EVO

Drop the Hammer

Increased Stiffness - Where it Counts

IT ALL STARTS WITH THE FRAME – our proprietary high-strength, high-stiffness BallisTec carbon construction is optimized to deliver an extremely light, extremely stiff frame with an unbelievably balanced and nuanced ride.

A wider BB30a bottom bracket shell and asymmetrically oversized chainstays improve power transfer, while a redesigned frontend and all-new fork offer pinpoint handling and control.

Not just stiffer... Smarter.

  • +11% Bottom Bracket Stiffness (63N/mm)
  • +12% Headtube Stiffness (103N/deg)

MORE EXPLOSIVE ACCELERATION

SMOOTHER - MORE GIVE FOR MORE GO

YOU WORK HARD FOR YOUR SPEED, SAVE it for when it matters most. The multi-zone SPEED SAVE micro-suspension system keeps the EVO smooth amidst the chaos, battling discomfort and fatigue while letting you roll faster and corner harder.

The rear triangle and fork join forces to keep the wheels tracking the ground, while the combined flex of the seat-tube and new SAVE seatpost defends against vibrations and shock. Add in the ability to run up to 28c tires and you’ve got a weapon to attack any road, anywhere.

Tighter in the Corners and Smoother in the Rough Stuff

TAP INTO SPEED

AERO. DYNAMIC.

EVERY RACE IS A BATTLE and to win, you need every advantage a bike can give. The new EVO features subtle TAP (Truncated Aero Profile) tube shapes in the down tube, seat tube and seat stays, as well as a narrower headtube and thinner TAP profile fork blades. TAP into an edge over the wind and your rivals - without sacrificing stiffness or ride quality.

FASTER IN THE FLATS

CLIMB TOWARDS THE LIGHT

LIGHTER WEIGHT THROUGH SYSTEM INTEGRATION

CANNONDALE’S SYSTEM INTEGRATION approach is the key to the all-new EVO’s incredible Balance of Power. Designing the frame, fork, and key components together as a system allows us to achieve pronounced gains in stiffness, compliance and aerodynamics and yet still reduce overall weight.

With the new ultra-light SPEED SAVE fork, new 25.4mm SAVE seatpost and stunning HollowGram cranks, the new EVO is not only lighter than ever, it’s lighter than most everything out there.

Domination through integration.

MORE POWERFUL IN THE HILLS

Dan

Martin

"I immediately felt the Evo’s lightness. It’s a more comfortable ride over bumps while maintaining the stiffness. For me, the biggest improvement is the high speed stability. It feels rock solid over bumps."

Ryder

Hesjedal

"I like it a lot more…
I can really feel the bottom bracket improvements. Super stiff and really responsive. The power transfer is definitely noticeable."

Alex

Howes

"Compliments to Cannondale.

The new Evo definitely feels faster and feels more aero too. It’s stiffer while climbing and sprinting and feels much livelier.

Plus, my girlfriend thinks it’s sexy."

Dylan

"The bike looks fast and rides faster! I noticed the fork difference straight away; sprinting, climbing, descending on bad roads was amazing. It tracks much easier and more confident."
