WorldTour bikes 2015: Cannondale-Garmin’s SuperSix EVO Hi-Mod and Synapse Hi-Mod

The arsenal at the disposal of Andrew Talansky, Dan Martin and co in 2015

Cannondale Pro Cycling and Garmin-Sharp have merged for the 2015 season and the new team will ride Cannondale bikes, with Cervelo leaving the WorldTour peloton as a result.

  7. Giant-Alpecin's Propel and TCR

Andrew Talansky, who underlined his Grand Tour potential with victory in the Criterium du Dauphine in 2014, will lead the team on the Cannondale SuperSix EVO Hi-Mod, with 2012 Giro d’Italia champion Ryder Hesjedal and Irishman Dan Martin also among the star names. Cannondale’s Synapse Hi-Mod endurance bike will also be at the squad’s disposal, along with the Slice RS for time trials.

While Cannondale Pro Cycling used SRAM groupset components last season, Garmin-Sharp’s bikes were shod with Shimano parts and the newly-merged team will also use the Japanese company’s components (save for the Cannondale SiSL2 chainset).

Mavic wheels, POC helmets and Castelli clothing, including a Gabba jersey in Cannondale’s trademark green, also carry over from Garmin-Sharp, while FSA finishing kit is inherited from Garmin-Sharp. Both squads sat on Fizik saddles last year and will continue to do so in 2015.

The SuperSix EVO Hi-Mod is Cannondale’s super-light, flagship machine, with a claimed frame weight of approximately 700g, while the Synapse was developed for the cobbled Classics and so puts comfort at the top of the agenda.

Let’s take a closer look at the bikes and equipment the team will be riding in 2015.
