b'BEST MENS RACE BIKECannondale SuperSixEVO $7,750Weekend warriors and World Tour pros alike have praised Cannondales SuperSix EVO foryears. The venerable road model received a ground-up redesign last summer. The new SuperSix is more wind cheating than the previous version, although thats not all its designed for. The frames down tube and seat tube are shaped to balance aerodynamics, weight sav-ings, and stiffness. Aero features extend to the internal cable rout-ing, integrated handlebar and stem, and sleek seatpost. The Shimano Ultegra Di2 build is our pick, since it includes 45-millimeter-deep carbon wheels and an integrated power metera feature testers thought should come standard on road bikes in this price range. Wefound the SuperSix to be an excep- tionally agile and sturdy ally when sprinting for mile-marker victories on country roads. BEST WOMENS RACE BIKELiv Langma Advanced Pro 0 Disc Force $6,000If youre a female roadie in needof a go-fast weapon, look no further than the women-specific Langma Advanced Pro 0 from Liv. Some ladies find unisex road framesgenerally designed with heavier male riders in mindto be overbuilt, with harsh rides that lead to fatigue. Liv tuned the layup of the Langmas carbon frame for lighter riders, improving comfort while retaining stiffness under power. The bike may be comfort-able, but its not a slow-steering cruiser. Aggressive geometry yields quick handling in line with perfor-mance-driven frames designed for deftly maneuvering through the peloton. The bike we tested was race-ready, with SRAMs electronic Force eTap AXS drivetrain, carbon wheels, and an integrated Quarq power meter.
