Facebook Live catch-up! Cannondale's new Supersix Evo Disc, Slate and Super X

Disc brakes on road bikes, lefty forks, thru axles and lots more

We got an up close and personal look at some of the star bikes in Cannondale's 2017 range earlier today when Cannondale UK's Clive Gosling joined us for a Facebook Live chat on the sofa. Clive showed us the new SuperSix Evo Disc, the 'New road/All road/adventure bike (delete as applicable) Slate, and the Super X cyclo-cross bike as well as fielding questions from you, and us. 

The two bikes couldn't be more different, but they're both road bikes at their heart. The newly updated Supersix Evo Disc is one of the latest race bikes to be given the disc brake treatment. You can read all about the bike in Tony’s first ride from earlier in the year right here.

Right at the other end of the road bike spectrum is the Slate. It’s one of the most unusual and interesting new bikes we’ve seen in recent years, with its Lefty fork providing 30mm of suspension travel and 40mm tyres on 650b wheels. You can read all about it here. 

David worked on the tech team from 2012-2020. Previously he was editor of and before that staff writer at RCUK. He's a seasoned cyclist of all disciplines, from road to mountain biking, touring to cyclo-cross, he only wishes he had time to ride them all. He's mildly competitive, though he'll never admit it, and is a frequent road racer but is too lazy to do really well. He currently resides in the Cotswolds, and you can now find him over on his own YouTube channel David Arthur - Just Ride Bikes
