Description

The Synapse is the perfect balance of raw power and all-day ridability. Its race-proven combination of endurance geometry, light weight and dialled vertical compliance has won it everything from Spring Classics to Bike of the Year accolades. It might just be the best all-around road bike we've ever made.

 

SYNAPSE CARBON IS:

 

  • The ultimate partner for the epic ride.

  • An ideal blend of compliance, rigidity, and weight for the perfect balance of raceday aggression and all-day ridability.

  • Revolutionary. BallisTec Carbon, Power Pyramid and the SAVE PLUS system provide the ideal blend of crush meets plush.

  • Available with the power, control and all-weather versatility of disc brakes.

 

RIDER PROFILE:

 

People who live for the love of the ride. Fit, serious, high performance riders who set their sights beyond the tightly defined world of the pure racer; Gran Fondo specialists, all-day-epic riders, and those who long to venture off the smooth and easy.

 

S.E.R.G. SYNAPSE ENDURANCE RACE GEOMETRY

 

With its slightly taller head tube, slightly longer wheelbase and slightly slacker head angle, 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 MICRO-SUSPENSION SYSTEM

 

The SAVE PLUS Micro-suspension system is a three part system, comprised of the carbon lay-up, the rear triangle and fork, and the seat post and seat tube, all designed to collaborate seamlessly to reduce vibration, improve handling, and increase comfort.

 

A SAVE PLUS MICRO-SUSPENSION SYSTEM (REAR TRIANGLE AND FORK)

 

The frame and fork’s carbon layup is designed to optimize high-frequency vibration dissipation, reducing road buzz. The radical helixed shapes of the chain stays and seat stays work in conjunction with the offset dropout fork to allow the wheels to track over imperfections in the road for better handling and control, seated or standing.

 

SAVE PLUS MICRO-SUSPENSION SYSTEM (SEAT POST AND SEAT TUBE)

 

The elegantly scalloped seat tube and the smaller diameter 25.4mm seatpost are designed to flex together to provide more comfort when seated. The integrated collarless seat clamp allows more of the seatpost to flex than with a traditional clamp.

 

POWER PYRAMID/BB30A The seat tube splits asymmetrically to meet a new wider 73mm BB30A bottom bracket, for maximum stiffness with minimal weight.

 

SYNAPSE BALLISTEC CARBON FRAME OPTIONS

  • Synapse Hi-MOD- BallisTec Hi-MOD carbon construction. High and ultra-high modulus fibres create an interconnected stiffening network throughout an extremely strong and durable base structure. Ultra light, strong and stiff.

  • Synapse Carbon- Same lay-up, same moulds and same ballistic base fibres as the Hi-MOD version, but utilizing a higher percentage of intermediate modulus fibres to tune stiffness and ride feel.

 

700 X 28C TYRES

The larger tyres (up to 28c) found on the Synapse models provide more comfort, are better suited for differing road conditions, and are less likely to pinch flat.

 

DISC BRAKES

 

The disc frames and forks feature a completely revised carbon layup designed to handle the different loads of disc brakes while still delivering the incredible compliance the Synapse is known for. The unique ReachAround rear mount makes brake adjustment easy and allows the use of both SRAM and Shimano standard.

 

NOT ONLY DID THE SYNAPSE WIN THE OVERALL AWARD, IT WALKED OFF WITH THE BEST SPORTIVE BIKE TOO, PROVING JUST HOW GOOD IT WAS. IT SETS THE BENCHMARK HIGH.” - ROAD.CC

 

Primera Review

The Cannondale Synapse has won bike of the year for the last 2 consecutive years after it reinvented the endurance road category with its modern geometry and modern features. The confidence inspiring disk brakes are complimented with the slightly wider tyres, this change has also helped the synapse keep its comfortable ride qualities that it is famous for. For 2016 Cannondale have done 2 colour ways in a size range from 48cm to 61cm so call us today to arrange a full Specizlied BG or Retul fit. Very popular bike with our Primera customers and once seen in the flesh [carbon] it’s hard not to buy one!

  1. Andy

    Stunning!

    After having taken a Synapse out on a test ride i was so impressed! It is a lovely smooth ride and climbs superbly.The stopping power from disc brakes is great having come from cantilevers.
    My first Cannondale after riding Specialized for the last twenty years.
    Thanks to Mark,Joe and Bill for the superb service and patience while i made up my mind! Also the bike fit/training advice from Jack was excellent and really helpful. (Posted on 25/02/2016)

  2. Andy Barter

    Smooth and comfortable

    Having read all the reviews bought one of these to replace an ageing Argon 18 for use mainly during winter months. Very impressed by overall comfort and smoothness particularly at the back end. Also love the hydraulic disc brakes good feel and build confidence at this time of year. Wheels upgraded to Mavic Ksyrium Pro Discs which are much livelier than stock items. This is my first 'dale and overall very pleased. Thanks to all the guys at Primera again for helping me to part with yet more cash. Service from the team Bill, Ross, Joe, and Jack faultless as ever.

  3. Simon Clarke

    Finally, an exiting endurance bike!

    I must admit in the past i have ridden endurance bikes and have found the bike to be lacking some excitement, however i read the reviews and had to take one for a ride, i was blown away, we rode at least 100 miles, i felt really comfortable and there was still the acceleration when needed.
