2021 Merida Scultura Endurance 7000-E Review: A High-Value All-Roader

Endurance road bikes were once the go-to for weekend warriors looking to clock up the miles without pinning on a race number. The general design goals were to offer a more relaxed and upright geometry, a more comfortable ride, and a wider gearing range. And bikes which fit the bill, such as the Specialized Roubaix, … The post 2021 Merida Scultura Endurance 7000-E review: A high-value all-roader appeared first on CyclingTips .

Cannondale Supersix Evo: Aero Overhaul For Iconic Race Bike

Stu Bowers Friday, June 28, 2019 - 12:59 Cannondale’s iconic race bike gets an aero overhaul The Cannondale SuperSix Evo has always, to the favour of many, maintained a very traditional aesthetic with its predominantly round tubing and horizontal top tube. But whilst it remained a perennial favourite amongst racers it was undeniably lagging far behind some of its competitors in the pro peloton with regards to its aero credentials. But no longer. The challenge facing design engineer and leading aerodynamicist Nathan Barry – the man behind the creation of Cannondale’s speed weapon, the SystemSix - was to create a new family of tubes that reduced aero drag but kept as much of the classic look as possible. Inevitably, though, such is the need to make certain changes if you want to make a super fast road bike these days, the new Cannondale SuperSix Evo has a very different style, ...

Cannondale Topstone Carbon First-Ride Review: Innovation That Actually Works

Cannondale’s aluminum Topstone gravel bike has proven to be quite popular since its debut last August, and the company is now following up with a higher-performance Topstone Carbon version. It’s hardly just the same frame made out of carbon fiber composite, though; it’s a totally different bike, with a radical pseudo-suspension design out back called … The post Cannondale Topstone Carbon first-ride review: Innovation that actually works appeared first on CyclingTips .

Topstone Carbon – Cannondale’S All New Gravel Bike

Stu Bowers Thursday, June 20, 2019 - 12:58 Way more than just a carbon revamp of the alloy Topstone; Cannondale has added rear suspension plus a host of other new features too The Topstone family joined Cannondale’s line-up only last year, as a competitively priced, aluminium-framed entry point into the all-road/gravel market. A year on and the family has grown exponentially, with 5 brand new carbon models (4 mens and 1 womens) just released and immediately available to buy, with a host of new features besides just being made from the black stuff. Kingpin The standout detail is what Cannondale calls Kingpin suspension – a rear end cushioning system that uses a thru-axle and sealed bearing pivot where the seat stays join the seat tube allowing flex zones in the chainstays, seat tube and rear portion of the top tube to create around 30mm vertical deflection at the saddle.

11spd: This Week's Best New Bikes And Gear

11spd: this week's best new bikes and gear

Let's get something out of the way first… no, we are not going to upgrade this feature to 12spd just yet. While SRAM may be making (tsunami) waves this week with the release of its all-new wireless 12-speed road and mountain bike groupsets , we here at BikeRadar aren’t quite ready to make the jump. Something about our website not having a compatible freehub? Japes aside, you’d have to be living underneath a (mechanically actuated) rock to have not caught wind of the news that SRAM has totally revamped its top-end road and mountain bike groupsets alongside releasing a wireless version of its Reverb dropper . This week, we’ve also seen the BikeRadar team weigh in on its very favourite kit for riding in the rain alongside , controversially, hearing why Benedict Pfender thinks waterproof jackets actually suck .

Cannondale Launches All-New And Surprisingly Affordable Gravel Bike

Cannondale launches all-new and surprisingly affordable gravel bike

Cannondale has just launched the Topstone, an all-new highly adaptable alloy gravel adventure bike that is available in three affordable builds. Best gravel and all-road bikes of 2018 Best gravel tyres of 2018 Named after a favourite gravel road near Cannondale’s main office, the geometry of the Topstone is based closely on the Synapse — its endurance road platform — and is being pitched as “an ideal weekend tourer, an all-weather commuter, or simply a supremely comfortable all-around road bike”. Cannondale Synapse Carbon Disc Dura-Ace review Officially, the bike has clearances for 700x42mm tyres, but we suspect you’ll be able to fit 45s into the cavernous fork crown and chainstays. There is no word on whether the bike will play nicely with 650b wheels. As has become Cannondale’s signature, the bike is built around its ‘Out Front’ geometry, which pairs a slacker-than-average head angle (71 degrees in most sizes) with ...

Cannondale’S New Systemsix Claims To Be The Fastest Uci Approved Road Bike In The World*

This article first appeared on BikeRadar . Cannondale revives the SystemSix marque as its fastest bike ever. The Pennsylvanian brand's reputation for innovation was built on bikes like the original SystemSix , itself an innovation. Based on Cannondale's ground-breaking CAAD aluminium bikes and the legendary Six13, while the original SystemSix co-moulded a carbon monocoque front end with CAAD8 level hindquarters, the new SystemSix takes its cues from lessons learned in the all-conquering Evo, and the sublime smoothness of the Synapse, and creates an aero-optimised package claimed to be the fastest currently available. Nathan Barry, one of Cannondale's team of design engineers, is an aero specialist and has a background in aerodynamics, specializing in bicycles — he's published papers and his PhD on how to analyse real world aero for bicycling — and he explains: "SystemSix is the result of a ground up design where each element is optimized in pursuit ...
