Cannondale's FSi Carbon Black offers a Shimano XTR Di2 electronic groupset, ENVE carbon setapost , ENVE carbon handlebars and a Cannondale SISL2 chainset as upgrades over the FSi Carbon Team.
Cannondale's FSi platform is all about integration and brings the classic XC hardtail into the modern era. Designed to retain the super low weight and responsiveness of a classic hardtail whilst giving the confidence to handle the toughest World Cup courses, FSi is all about being the best. By designing multiple components together the end system is lighter, stiffer and better handling. An Assymetric Integration drivetrain uses a 6mm offset rear triangle which not only gives a much stronger and stiffer rear wheel but also allows for extra short chainstays and greater mud clearance. System geometry is designed to handle the more technically challenging modern race courses and mates a slack 69.5 degree head angle with a custom offset Lefty fork which maintains responsive and nimble handling whilst giving better stability on steeper pitches. A new SAVE 2 seatpost brings an additional 20% compliance over the previous model whilst saving 50 grams over the previous model.
All FSi models use a Lefty fork which is not only one of the lightest XC forks available it is also one of the stiffest too. If you haven't ridden Lefty you might find it hard to believe that a single legged fork can be torsionally stiffer than a traditional two leg fork but the larger diameter outer tube, integrated hub axle and square bearing surfaces mean that it is and the benefit to handling is immediately apparent with pin point accuracy and excellent tracking over rough ground.
FSi bikes use fit focused wheel sizing. Recognising that the performance benefits of using a larger wheel are worthless if the geometry compromises required to fit the wheels into the frame don't allow a good rider fit, FSi models use a 27.5" wheel on the Small size and 29" on Medium, Large and XLarge.
The Hi Modulus frame of the FSi Carbon Black uses higher modulus carbon fibres than those used in the standard FSi frame which bring both weight savings and stiffness gains.
The Cannondale FSi Carbon Team uses a Shimano XTR Di2 Electronic drivetrain for the ultimate in precision gear shifting. A 11-40 cassette and 36/26 chainrings give a great range of gears to suit race courses anywhere. Cannondale supply their own, stunning, Hollowgram SiSL2 chainset which is not only one of the lightest chainsets available but also benefits from the additional stiffness of the BB30 bottom bracket system. Shimano's XTR Race brakes are fitted, offering superb function and feel at an extra low weight.
ENVE's M50 rims are used to offer a superstiff and super light setup with the durability expected from a company like ENVE. The rims are tubeless ready making tubeless conversion straight forward.
If you are looking for one of the fastest race bikes on the planet which has been designed for raw speed and excellent handling then the FSi Carbon Black is the pinnacle.
