2018 Cannondale Synapse Carbon Disc Ultegra
TRUE ENDURANCE MACHINERY
Built for big rides and long days in the saddle, the new Synapse offers full race performance, all-day geometry, wide-ranging capabilities and a micro-suspension system that insulates you from the bumps without isolating you from the experience. It’s a true endurance machine, for true endurance riders.
To Sum It Up: Blisteringly fast, all-day comfortable, all-road capable and engaging to ride, the new Synapse is the best all-around road bike we’ve ever made.
New frame weighs just 950g (over 220g lighter) with a level of stiffness
normally reserved for World Tour sprinters’ rigs. This thing is fast.
»» CONNECTED COMFORT
The new SAVE PLUS micro-suspension in the frame and fork is complemented by the addition of the
SAVE seatpost and new SAVE SystemBar, creating a full, holistic comfort and performance enhancing
system that keeps you protected from shocks and vibration yet connected to the feel of the ride.
»» ENDURANCE RACE GEOMETRY
The rider position perfectly balances low, forward efficiency and upright comfort, for
a “just-right” feel that encourages full-gas exploits and all-day sessions.
»»WIDE RANGING CAPABILITIES
With full clearance for tires up to a whopping 32mm wide, and subtle, hidden fender mounts,
the new Synapse is ready and willing to explore the wilder side of endurance riding.
