The Cannondale SystemSix – Freaky Fast

At $11,000 the new 2019 SystemSix was unveiled today. Cannondale says this is the fastest road bike in the professional peloton! The American Tour team EF Education First-Drapac p/b Cannondale will ride the SystemSix during the three-week event. The SystemSix is a direct rival to the Trek Madone, the Specialized Venge, the Canyon Aeroad, and others.

The American bicycle manufacturer Cannondale on Monday launched its first aero road bike, the SystemSix, which it claims is “absolutely the lowest-drag, most efficient, all-around fastest UCI-legal road bike on the market today.”

The Connecticut-based company bases its claim on extensive testing using computational fluid dynamics, wind-tunnel data, and a “constant feedback loop.”

“SystemSix is the result of a ground-up design where each element is optimized in pursuit of speed,” Nathan Barry, a Cannondale design engineer, said. “Aerodynamic drag is the single greatest resistive force that riders have to overcome, so it is important to everyone, not just racers. SystemSix delivers more speed, to more riders, more of the time.”

The name SystemSix comes from Cannondale’s six-point approach to integrated design in the frame, fork, wheels, seatpost, handlebar, and stem. The result, the company says, is a bike that’s the fastest not just in the wind tunnel but everywhere on the road.

What do you think? Did Cannondale make the best aero bike ever? Will this new bike be game changer and help secure a Tour de France victory for Rigoberto Uran riding for the EF Education First-Drapac p/b Cannondale cycling team.
