The New 2020 Cannondale SuperSix EVO have received a big update in its design leading to a 30% drag reduction compared to previous model.
This is huge!
Especially when considering the frame weights the same as previous version.
The gain can be marginal but it equal to 30 Watts saved at a speed of 48km/h and we know every Watts count when racing.

The frame is optimized to decrease drag while staying versatile and is really fast (assuming you are a fast rider of course!)
Higuita is racing on the Size 48cm Cannondale SuperSix EVO frame that is custom color to celebrate the Colombia Road Bike Champion title.

Cannondale recommends the size 48cm to riders between 1m60 to 1m70.
Sergio Higuita is a Climber type of rider measuring 1m63 and has fitted a 120mm stem length.

The handlebar drop difference with the saddle height is only 4cm which is not big compared with the current trend among pro riders.
The position is optimized for climbing hills.

Higuita’s Prologo Scratch 2 saddle is set at 664mm high, the distance with the handlebar is 515mm.

The Hollowgram SISL 2 crank arms are 170mm length and the pedals are the Speedplay Zero Aero.

The Cannondale SuperSix EVO 2020 have received many good reviews for its improvement on decreased drag and smooth comfort, it is a great frame for competition and mountainous profile roads.
I like the frame and fork design, the tubes are very smart and the aero is optimized with low BB center.

The bike components are expected to evolve during the season as Shimano might be releasing a new Dura Ace groupset in the second half of 2020 and some components sponsors might change.
