At the 2014 Challenge Roth we noticed the brand new Cannondale Slice of Danish athlete Michelle Vesterby, and well, it is a difficult bike to overlook.
This new Slice has not yet been launched, and Michelle Vesterby rides a 51cm edition.
Up close with the front end of this new Slice.
The seat cluster is very narrow and the seatstays come in quite low.
The whole rear triangle is on the miniscule side and the complete bike felt light. But we had no scale on hand.
Depending on the needs of the athlete the saddle can be moved further back. The XLab cage is not attached to the Tritone bottle mount. Zipties are used instead.
The f:iz'ik Tritone saddle has a pink center.

Michelle Vesterby is a Shimano sponsored Pro and has a Pro Missile cockpit, with an XLab torpedo mount, and pink fi:zi'k bar tape.

Michelle Vesterby relies on Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 shifting.
Shimano Ultegra brakes handle the slowing down duties.
The Shimano Ultegra brake in the rear sits below the chainstay.
Vesterby has 165mm Shimano Dura-Ace cranks and a SRM power meter.
