Excellent climbing ability
The aluminum Synapse come in four variations, specced with either Shimano Claris, Sora, Tiagra or an 11 speed Shimano 105 groupset. The Tiagra and 105 options also feature mechanically operated disc brakes and offer exceptional value for money. The award winning 105 carbon Synapse models now feature Shimano’s new 11 speed 105 groupset. The same frame is utilized on the Synapse Ultegra.
Hydraulic disc brakes from Shimano offer some of the best stopping power and are now compatible with either mechanical or electronic shifters. The combination of both disc brakes and Di2 create a bike that is ready for the very worst of the winter weather. High Modulus carbon fibresare used in the top three Synapse models, with Ultegra, Sram Red and Dura-Ace Di2 options available.
Compact chainsets and large 11-32 cassettes ensure excellent climbing ability, whilst a responsive frame geometry allows for explosive acceleration. Underlying these performance characteristics is the buttery smooth ride and unrivaled comfort – there isn’t anything else like it!
