The Cannondale Slice RS

Here in Kona we had a chance to look a bit closer at the Cannondale Slice RS of Michael Weiss. The bike is actually still a prototype but we can expect to see a very fast split on it.

Michael Weiss will be the only athlete in Kona aboard one of these unique new Cannondale bikes.

The integrated brakes in the fork keep things very clean.

Michael Weiss is one of 20 athletes whose SRM data will be covered live during the race. Check it out on slowtwitch.

In addition to the Speedfil system on the downtube , Michael also runs a bottle between the bars.

SRM power meter of course for this fast Austrian.

The Powercontrol unit wedges nicely between his bars.

Zipp Firecrest wheels front and back on race day.

Just in case something else needs to be mounted.

A Prologo saddle is under Michael Weiss.

This is what the wind sees. Very little actually.
