Cannondale SuperX Force SE w/ wider range 1x gearing

Cannondale took a big leap when they launched their Slate ‘New Road’ Bike. Not only did it have Road Plus wheels and tires, but it also brought suspension into the mix with the Lefty Oliver. It doesn’t look like the Slate is going anywhere any time soon, but for fans of bigger wheels and rigid bikes, Cannondale now has another option. Quietly released through Facebook and their website, you’re looking at the new SuperX SE – an evolved cross bike with bigger tires and wider range gearing to tackle whatever terrain comes next…

Based on the SuperX frameset, the SuperX SE uses a BallisTec carbon frame with a BB30 bottom bracket, and 142 x 12 / 100 x 12 thru axle front and rear. While it’s speced with a 1×11 SRAM Force wide range drivetrain, the frame does include a removeable front derailleur mount if needed. Cables are routed internally with guides you can customize for different personal set ups.

Using the same geometry as the SuperX cyclocross race bikes, this appears to be the same bike, just built with a different parts group with more versatile riding in mind. That includes WTB KOM i23 TCS rims running Riddler 700 x 37c tubeless tires for increased traction. The 1×11 drivetrain uses a SRAM 10-42 PG1130 cassette with a 40t SpideRing narrow wide chain ring. Available in 46, 51, 54, 56, 58, and 61cm frames.
