For some reason, Cannondale isn't known for triathlon/TT machines. One look at the Slice will make you wonder why...

The Slice isn't a "pure aero" bike. No deep-section down tube or seatstays. No integrated aero bars. No airplane rudder seatpost. All that adds weight and can make the bike feel like a sailboat during crosswind-plagued rides and races. The truncated tubes of the main triangle are still very aero, but feature sliced-off trailing edges to fool the air and produce lower drag numbers. The pencil-like 8mm-thin seatstays not only resist crosswinds better, but are designed to soak up fatiguing vibration and road shock, allowing the rider to stay fresher for longer. There's a channel in the seat tube for the rear tire to recess into, making a large section of the bike very slippery to the wind.

Building all this needed Cannondale's well-engineered BallisTec raw carbon fiber material, keeping weight very low and torsional strength high. Even the aero-blade fork is carbon fiber, leading the charge though the air as you attack your PR on your favorite (or least favorite!) bike course. The overall geometry of the Slice puts an emphasis on stability, reducing overall rider fatigue as well.

Quality components help make any bike function so that the rider can concentrate on the job at hand. Shimano's 11-speed 105 derailleurs operate with lightning-quickness through MicroShift bar-end levers, letting you focus on your efforts. An FSA Gossamer Pro 52/36T crankset and Shimano 105 11-28T cassette boast a wide gearing range to assist in tackling challenging hills and steep descents.

The HED wheelset is part of what makes this bike a real performer. 60mm profile rims make any aero frame even faster, and the HED rim shape is also more effective than a classic "V-profile" at lowering drag numbers. The rim shape is also better at handling crosswinds, too. Aluminum brake tracks eliminate the need to change brake pads. 700x25c Schwalbe Lugano tires not only subtract rolling resistance, but also add lateral grip for better handling. Shimano's direct-mount brake calipers do an excellent job of speed control, while the brake levers at the base bars offer excellent feedback. The alloy Cannondale C3 base bar, alloy C3 stem and Vision TriMax Team aero bars add comfy forearm pads and classic bar tape for grip. The cables are internally routed, but can still be adjusted easily. No, this bike doesn't require a pit crew to assemble when it travels in a shipping box. Out back, a Cannondale triathlon saddle and narrow-chord carbon fiber seatpost completes this masterful speed machine.
