Get out there and let your Synapse fire.

TECHNOLOGIES

  • S.E.R.G. Synapse Endurance Race Geometry
    S.E.R.G. strikes the ideal balance between pure race positioning and upright comfort. Perfect for long days in the saddle and confident handling on all road surfaces.
  • SAVE PLUS - Rear Triangle
    The helixed shapes of the rear stays work with the fork to absorb bumps for better comfort and control. The seat tube and 25.4mm seatpost flex together for additional comfort in the saddle.
  • SAVE PLUS- Fork
    The shaped fork blades and offset dropouts let the front wheel track smoothly over rough surfaces. Works as a system with the rear triangle.
  • Power Pyramid/BB30A
    The seat tube splits asymmetrically to meet a new wider 73mm BB30A bottom bracket, for maximum stiffness with minimal weight.
  • Disc Brakes
    Frame and fork redesigned with new carbon layup to deliver the power and control of disc brakes while preserving the Synapse ride-feel.
  • BallisTec Carbon
    Cannondale's carbon construction method uses precisely placed high stiffness fibers over a base of high tensile strength fibers and high impact resins to deliver extreme light weight and perfectly tuned stiffness, without sacrificing strength.
