Cannondale's Six Carbon 3 Compact has the look of a capable all-round racer but perhaps a little too much substance to go with it.

At first glance, the frameset is a near clone of the company's top-end SuperSix, what with its similarly rounded-triangular profile down tube and top tube, giant asymmetrical chainstays, whisper-thin hourglass seatstays and chunky fork. Cannondale even give it a similarly racy red-and-white paint job and the exact same geometry.

The resultant performance is a close copy in many ways as a result. Front triangle torsional stiffness is spot-on with the far more expensive flagship (Cannondale engineers confirmed our impressions as such) and drivetrain rigidity is just a few ticks behind (just nine percent according to Cannondale) – in both cases putting it among the stoutest examples out there.  

As such, the Six Carbon exhibits just the slightest hint of noticeable twist up front when out of the saddle or muscling the bike through corners and there's little sway down below when you really lay it down – budget-minded quadzillas who have found other comparable bikes too soft, step right up.

Likewise, handling is exactly what we've experienced on the SuperSix with appropriately race-bike-quick turn-in that confidently settles an arc in the curves and yet is still reasonably stable at high speed – we even surreptitiously motorpaced behind a landscaping truck (not recommended behaviour!) for about 8km at well over 80kmh and never once felt uneasy.

Comfort-wise, the Six Carbon is again just barely a half step behind its far more expensive cousin. In addition to the usual road buzz, bigger bumps are also duly muted and severely washboarded dirt roads are made surprisingly tolerable as well.

Even with the superb front end and drivetrain stiffness, we were still impressively fresh even after rides approaching the five-hour mark.

Much of that superb chassis rigidity is further muddled by the complete bike's 8.5kg (18.74lb) total weight – without pedals – though at least the mixed bag of parts works well together.

Shimano Ultegra SL STI Dual Control levers are connected to an Ultegra SL front derailleur, Dura-Ace 7800 rear derailleur and 105 cassette for smooth and quiet shifts even with the mismatching KMC chain.

Our test bike's Ultegra SL brake calipers provide their usual high-powered and controllable stopping ability, though production units apparently come with Tektro clampers instead.

FSA provide the competent Gossamer crankset – in either compact or standard depending on your preference – but early production models (like our tester) are saddled with the MegaExo version instead of the lighter and stiffer BB30 one. Tack on another 67g plus the weight of the adapter cups as a result, but Cannondale report that later samples were properly BB30-equipped, so shop carefully.

Rolling stock comes courtesy of a Mavic Aksium wheels and Maxxis Xenith clinchers – not much to complain about here as the former are smooth-rolling and stout while the latter offer excellent cornering grip. The wheels' 1,855g-claimed weight doesn't help matters though and swapping in a lighter set of hoops breathes noticeable life into the package.

Finishing things off are a Control Tech aluminium stem, comfy aluminium anatomic bar and carbon-wrapped seatpost topped with a Fizik Arione saddle.  Again, all perfectly functional stuff.
