The Cannondale 'Synapse' name has been around since before time but every year it seems it's ahead of its time. 2018 has seen a full redesign and a large modernisation across the range. The alloy models have a new geometry set up and an improved frame design, the carbon models once again feature new higher modular carbon constructions. Some of the disc models have taken a step up with bolt thru systems and new handlebar and stem combo's whilst others have had fork redesigns with quick and easy QR systems.

We've all riden the Synapse here at Primera and can confirm that this is one of the best in class at providing a lightweight, high spec'd endurance road bike, capable of pushing out a high speed with little effort. 


Light, smooth, fast and elegantly designed. The all-new Synapse is the ultimate machine for full-gas, full-day exploits.

950g Frame - When its just not for the sake of saving grams - in other words, when it's combined with racey snap and sublime feel - there’s just no substitute for light weight. 950 grams for a frame like this? Believe it.


Race Level Stiffness - An asymmetrically designed frame and fork balance pedalling and disc loads to deliver world tour sprinter level stiffness.  Get ready to lay down power and rail corners like you wouldn’t believe.


Save Post – The 25.4mm SAVE post and integrated seat binder work with the rest of the SAVE system to enhance comfort and reduce fatigue.


Save Micro-Suspension – Engineered to tune the harshness out of the choppy road surfaces, and tune you in to what’s happening at your tires’ contact patches, so that you can concentrate on the important stuff – like nailing the right line or beating the sun home.


Endurance Race Geometry – Strikes the perfect performance balance between full race aggression and the relaxed upright comfort of other “endurance” rigs.


Fender Up – Hidden mounts and a removable seat stay bridge ensure that the Synapse is fully fender ready for long days with no spray.


Room for 32 – Embrace the backroads, the rough roads, the highways and the byways.  With room in the front and rear for tires as big as 32mm (measured/actual) and SAVE Micro-Suspension, Synapse is ready for any road, anywhere.


Thru Axles – Front and rear might seem like cost-of-entry these days, but often they’re overkill.  But ride this bike like intended to be ridden and overkill, they not.

RIDER POSITION / BIKE GEOMETRY - Performance focused, but slightly more upright for comfort. Perfect for long days in the saddle and confident handling on all road surfaces.
