Cannondale on Tuesday launched an electric-assist version of its lightweight SuperSix EVO road race bike, the SuperSix EVO Neo.

“The SuperSix EVO Neo retains the light weight, handling, and ride feel of the original, but with a discreet boost that tames hills and headwinds,” Cannondale stated in a release.

The Class 1 ebike (pedal assist up to 20 mph) is powered by a lightweight 250W Mahle Ebikemotion hub motor offering three levels of assist. A 250Wh battery is concealed in the frame’s downtube. The full system tips the scales at a svelte 7.7 pounds; total bike weight is stated at 24.9 pounds for the top-of-the-line SuperSix EVO Neo 1 in size large. (The e-road bike also comes in two other spec levels.)

Cannondale’s rear wheel sensor pairs with the free Cannondale App to deliver speed, route and distance information, register the bike, and send service reminders.

Assist mode and battery life are communicated through a single button on the toptube, with no bar-mounted display.

In lieu of a handlebar-mounted display, a low-profile toptube control button lets riders select assist levels and keep an eye on battery charge. Stated range is 75 kilometers (46.6 miles), but that can be extended using the optional Range Extender external battery. The 3.6-pound Range Extender adds 208Wh to the main battery and mounts in a bottle cage on the frame’s seat tube. Pricing for the Range Extender was not immediately available.

The SuperSix EVO Neo takes aerodynamic cues from its non-electric sibling, including truncated airfoil carbon tube shapes and Cannondale’s own aero SAVE SystemBar, KNØT stem, and 27 KNØT seatpost.

“We know that drag reduction has a huge effect on speed and performance in cycling. This holds true for e-road bikes as well. Reducing drag makes it easier to go faster, especially once riders go above the assistance threshold,” Cannondale design engineer Nathan Barry said.

The line starts at $4,500 for the Shimano 105-equipped SuperSix EVO Neo 3.
