Is this the lightest disc brake road bike in the world?

A custom built road bike, built around a Cannondale SuperSix Evo HiMod frame is laying claim to be the lightest road bike in the world equipped with hydraulic disc brakes

Reported to weight just 5.7kg the bike was built in a joint collaboration between Cannondale and the EC1 Collective. The project was started by Mike Gluckman, the founder of the EC1 Collective, who approached Cannondale because of its reputation for producing very light frames. Gluckman chose a SuperSix Evo HiMod as the foundation of the project.
