A road bike that's light, stiff, fast and surprisingly comfortable. Your rides will go longer. You'll barely notice.
Where it Thrives
the open road, gravel roads, in competition
What it's Built For
Endurance, speed, comfort
- lightweight BallisTec Carbon frameset
- Shimano 105 11
- speed group with Cannondale 1 dual chainring crank
- Shimano 105 hydraulic disc brakes
Wide Ranging Capabilities With full clearance for tires up to a whopping 3mm wide, and subtle, hidden fender mounts, the Synapse is ready and willing to explore the wilder side of endurance riding.
Power Pyramid Seat Tube
The seat tube splits asymmetrically to meet the wide, 73mm CC30A for maximum stiffness with minimal weight.
An integrated wheel sensor helps track your activity (like speed, distance and calories burned), registers your bike, reminds you of needed service and more, all through the free Cannondale App.
Cannondale's proprietary high-strength, high-stiffness carbon construction. An advanced matrix of intermediate modulus fibers creates a frame that's light, durable and lively
