2011 Cannondale Slice

Time trials and triathlons. This is the machine of choice around the world for amateur athletes as well as seasoned professionals such as Chrissie Wellington and Mirinda Carfrae. Thanks to SAVE technology, the Slice frame absorbs fatiguing road vibration leaving you fresh when you get off the bike (and in the case of an Ironman, run a marathon). There are countless reviews on the merits of Cannondale’s full-carbon triathlon bike, now you can get into a top level bike starting at just $2000 with a respectable parts kit.

Most bikes in this category are somewhat aerodynamic, very few are as lightweight, and none are as comfortable as the Slice. The Slice has all three: aero, light, and comfortable and as a bonus, stiff efficiency. Some manufacturers have great aerodynamics, but suffer in efficiency or comfort. Others make a comfortable bike, but it weighs too much. You’ve got to come ride one of these bikes to believe it.
