Rigoberto Uran’s Cannondale SuperSix Evo Hi-MOD | EF-Education First Tour de France Pro Bike


– I’ve got a seriously
exciting pro bike for you here. This is the brand new
Cannondale Super 6 EVO of EF Education First and this one belongs to the Columbian Rigoberto Uran. And this is the brand new
model in the new team colors, replacing the previous SuperSix. The SuperSix has now gone aero. But before I go into all the cool details, and there’s lots of them on this bike, be sure to subscribe to
GCN if you haven’t already, and please click the little bell icon, ’cause it will give you
a notification every time we upload a video. I’m currently filming this
video next to Brussels Airport, directly under the flight
path it would appear, so, if you hear any airplanes,
that’s probably why. Now, I was a big fan of the old SuperSix. I loved the traditional
shape of it with the flat sort of top tube and the traditional lines and the tall seat stays and
that’s kind of, well, all gone. It’s gone aero, so you’ve
got low seat stays, a D shaped seat post and
aero tube shapes throughout and in doing so kind of reckons that there’s been a considerable aero saving and the new bike is considerably more aero-dynamic than the old one. Sort of a halfway house,
between a full on aero bike and the previous model. So that’s cool to see and I
also like the new paint job, with the blue on it as well. I think it’s pretty smart. Interestingly Rigo has
opted for rim brakes. Now, this is interesting
because the bikes offered in both disc brakes and
rim brake and the team gave all the riders the choice. I asked the mechanics, and so
consequently I think there’s five riders running disc
brakes and three riders have chosen rim brakes. The new SuperSix has a lot
of integration built into it, to make it more aero-dynamic. But Rigoberto Uran has opted
for a fairly traditional cockpit, so there is an
option to have a really integrated aero one piece bar and stem, and through that all the cables can root, but Rigo prefers a traditional round bar and it’s interesting this,
because a lot of pro riders do still prefer a standard
round handlebar and stem. Now, because he’s got that,
you’ve got some cables running differently, so
they’re running through a hole in the stem here at the
top tube and then through the bars but it’s still a very neat job and the mechanics have done
a great thing of wrapping this tape ’round to hold the
DI2 cable and the brake cable together and that’s
where this little plastic feature comes in too. So, through here is actually
a port where you can root cables internally if
it’s the disc brake fork so then the hydraulic lines
actually go through here and come out somewhere down here. But again, because Rigo’s
using the rim brake model, this bit becomes redundant and it’s kind of like an aero feature. Although he doesn’t have
an aero-dynamic handlebar, Rigoberto Uran is someone
who clearly cares about aero-dynamics because
he appears to be running a very narrow handlebar. That to me, looks like it might be a 38. But it’s coming out at 37 and a half, 38, so yeah, very narrow. I mean, a couple of years
ago most the pros were still using 42 centimeter bars, but
now we’re definitely seeing a trend toward narrower bars
and that’s because you can get into a narrower position
and be more aero-dynamic. Some people do think there
is a detrimental impact to handling, but clearly
Rigo isn’t one of them. In addition to the FSA round bar, he’s got an FSA stem, I’ve measured that as
120 millimeters long. And then he’s got his
Garmin heard unit out front here as well. EF Education First is sponsored
by Vision, so the wheels are Vision Metron tubulars and
there’s a range of depths availible to the riders,
depending on kind of the stage that they’re riding and
onto those they’ve got Vittoria Corsa G tubular tires, 26 millimeters front and rear and on the Verniers they’re
coming out at 26 millimeters bang on as well. EF aren’t sponsored by Shimano
but they are using some Shimano components on the bike
so they’re got Dura-Ace DI2 shifters, Dura-Ace pedals and Dura-Ace front and rear derailleurs. Interestingly the cassette
on the back appears to be an Ultegra cassette, so
that’s a 30 11 that he’s gone for there and the chain rings are from FSA and interestingly they’re 53 42 rather than the traditional 53 39. And I suspect the reason for
that is because the opening stages of the Tour de France,
well they’re pretty flat sprinter stages so you can
expect quite a lot of the riders to be using that bigger inner chain ring. Now because EF aren’t sponsored
by Shimano, frees them up to use some components that
they ordinarily wouldn’t be able to. So, in addition to the FSA
chain rings, we’ve got the FSA Power Box Power Meter and
Cannondale’s proprietary SISL2 cranks which are said
to be very light indeed and help contribute to the
bike’s overall low weight. On the new SupeSix the
brakes are now direct mount on the rim rake model,
rather than single mount which they were before,
so that’s good to see, you get a bit more purchase
from a direct mount brake. It’s got two mounting points. There’s also Rigoberto
Uran’s little name badge just here with his little Columbian flag, quite a subtle detail, that lets you know whose
bike it is and the saddle of choice is a Prologo
Zero 3 and it’s got carbon rails, which are very nice
and this kind of textured surface on the top which helps keep the rider’s posterior in place. Looking on the frame we’ve
got Tacx carbon cages and Tacx bottles and
then this is really cool. I’ve not seen this before. So, this is where the
junction box now sits on the new EVO, so it’s out of the way, it used to hang here
but now it sits neatly in the frame and the cover
that covers it, this is cool, is a little carbon fiber plate
that keeps it nice and neat in the frame. I like that. Now I’m just going to do some
quick measurements for you. So the cranks are 170 millimeters long. The saddle height that Rigo
is running is 71 centimeters from center of saddle to the
center of the bottom bracket. And from the tip of the saddle,
to the center of the bars, 54 centimeters of reach there. It’s pretty interesting. I’m not sure of the exact
frame size on this model, it’s either a 52 or a 54, maybe
you can let me know at home. Either way, I think we
should weigh the bike. I really want to this bike,
more than many of the bikes, because the SuperSix is
a bike that’s renowned for low weight, so let’s see
what the new one comes in at in a full race build. (mellow music) Oh. 6.92. I think they mechanics
have got that just perfect for when it’s weighed by the UCI. Normally, they make them
up so that they get it just above 6.8 so there’s a bit
of leeway in case the UCI scales are off, but
that’s with the Garmin, the pedals, the bottle
cages, and the number mounts. So, bang on the money. I hope you’ve enjoyed
this look at Rigo’s bike, I’m big fan this, I did
like the traditional shape of the old one, but the new
one does look really cool as well and I do like this
modern climbing bike shape with the drop stays. I’m a fan, I have to say. So, let us know what you
think in the comments below, and if you enjoyed this video, then please give it a thumbs
up and subscribe to GCN. And if you’d like to get your hands, and I don’t know why
you possibly wouldn’t, one one of these awesome GCN
France themed tee shirts, they’re a bit craft work aren’t they. Well, we’ve got them in the

    Pros and picky amateurs usually opt to get stem length dialed in first as a higher priority than using the manufacturer's barstem combo that might not come in the sizing that they want. That's what happens to me.

    Ugh, again with the dreaded "tip of saddle to handlebars" measurement. It's an utterly useless measurement, especially with the short nose saddles like the Prologo Dimension becoming more common. Measure from the center of the seatpost clamp at least, not perfect but somewhat more meaningful.

    Riders choose rim brakes because they're lighter and more than sufficient, ain't that hard to work out. Discs have their place, but a gc contender's bike is not one of them, unless they are forced to ride them (specialized, trek, bmc riders).

    That's quite a bend on the rear brake cable housing. It is almost 90 degrees. I would have made the housing shorter. Even though it might not look as nice, it would probably reduce the cable friction.
