The SuperSlice is a new model from the American brand, but has many similarities with its existing Slice time trial bike such as the cut-out seat tube and upright seatpost.
However there are some subtle changes such as what appears to be a beefed by down tube, a re-engineered bottom bracket, and a cleaner head tube.
Of course, the biggest change comes with the fork and the rear end, which will have been altered to deal with the asymmetric forces exerted on them by disc brakes.
For the time being, the team is having to use TRP Spyre mechanical disc brakes, which will provide very similar braking performance to standard rim brakes, with the switch to hydraulic disc brakes expected when Shimano starts to produce a time trial brake lever capable of working with hydraulic brakes.
The bad news is that the Cannondale SuperSlice didn't receive an overly successful debut, with Cannondale-Drapac finishing in 16th place in the Tirreno-Adriatico team time trial, 1-18 behind winners BMC Racing.
