2020 Cannondale SystemSix Carbon Ultegra Road Bike in Black

4 years of hard work and effort were put into the SystemSix, the mission to make the fastest bike in the world started reviewing the 6 components of cycling resistance: Rolling Resistance Wheel Bearing Friction Drivetrain Efficiency Potential Energy Kinetic Energy Aero Dynamic Drag These six elements limit speed and use energy reducing them means you can improve your speed or travel at the same speed using less energy. Considering these factors in every element of design and build Cannondale have tested the bike against key competitors and created the fastest UCI bike in the world! Design not just to win in the wind tunnel breakaways or crit specialists, this bike will help everyone and anyone go faster in any situation. Major benefits in places you wouldn’™t expect: Climbing SystemSix out performs any traditional lightweight road bike on any grade up to 6% Descending at 5% on a SystemSix you can be doing a spinning 200w (recovery effort) whilst someone on a traditional road bike is going to have to be putting in 300w (Tempo effort) just to keep up. Out in the front pulling the pace at 50km per hour your using over 50w less than a person on a traditional road bike In the pack drafting tucked back system six is giving you 60% of that aero benefit Sprint at 1000w after 200yards system six is four bike lengths ahead of a traditional lightweight road bike Pacing cruising at 30k your using 10% less power than someone on a normal road bike giving you that extra edge for the climb or sprint. The system Six allows everyone to go faster Adding to this every system six model comes equipped with the wheel sensor for connectivity to Cannondale’™s new app. Cannondale have worked with Garmin on the wheel sensor so you know Cannondale want this new technology to be everything you want it to be’¦ so what’™s the deal? The app is available to download on both android and Apple stores and you can log in using Google, Facebook logins or create a new login. Once downloaded and logged in it takes and impressive 20 seconds to pair with your bike by simply spinning the front wheel. The app has four features Ride, Garage, Resources, Warranty. Ride enables precise ride results for distance, time and Calories for the last 30 rides without having to take your phone with you or remembering to press record. The sensor also has Bluetooth and ANT transmission so pairing with your turbo trainer and recording those rides is simple. Interestingly the App will also calculate how your rides have reduced your carbon footprint for each ride for the lifetime of your bike. Garage stores the measurements of your bike fit and service History. The Cannondale app also takes care of your bikes health prompting you when your bike needs a service based on the miles you’™ve covered. Resources have all the spec and manuals for your bike in your language. Warranty allows you to automatically register the warranty on you bike making it the simplest it’™s been From a dealer perspective there is a dealer version of the app providing the bike fit and bike diagnostics. This means if they grease your saddle you can be assured they will return it to the exact position and expect no variation. It also helps them order parts for your bike essentially streamlining the process. The dealer version does not give any of your route or personal details to the dealer.
