Teacher’s notes: MBA enjoyed the Super Raven throughout the testing period. Its thermoplastic carbon fiber front section is stiff and lightweight, but there is a small amount of flex in its aluminum swingarm. There are lockout levers on both its ?fork? and shock to assist ascending. Switch to lower handlebars and Cannondale’s flagship will climb even better.
