You might have seen these blue and lime green beauties rolling around France this July under Team Liquigas-Cannondale.

Years of development under the guidance of carbon fibre sorcerer and bike guru, Peter Denk, have resulted in the lightest production frame in the world, while still retaining maximum stiffness.

142 Nm-Deg/Kg: the stiffness to weight ratio of the Evo, nearly 40% better than any other 
bike. This figure is the hallowed ground of bike manufacturing. But science isn’t everything, Bicycling Magazine reckons its “balance and feel” (the human factor) are just as exceptional

SRAM’s new Red components take care of the shifting and braking, and Mavic’s top-of-the-line all-carbon wheels complete the space-age package.
