The Cannondale Six Carbon 3 is a no-nonsense competitive racing bicycle featuring a full carbon chain and seat stay triangle, all the way to the dropouts. It shares many of the features of the Elite Road, while maintaining a much more budget-friendly price. As the premier model in the series, the Carbon 3 utilizes an FSA Gossamer non-BB30 crank with Shimano Ultegra SL shifters and Shimano Ultegra/Dura-Ace derailleurs. The Gossamer is a lighter and stiffer competitor to the Shimano Compact, as it is so rigid as to maintain functionality for a long time without becoming weak and distorted. Universal across the Six Carbon line is a Six Carbon BB30 lightweight frame that combined with the oversized tapered head tube allowed for greater steering control and ultra-precise tracking.
