Cannondale's Synapse aluminum 105 is a weekday commuter and weekend adventurer. Synapse Endurance Race Geometry appeals to Gran Fondo specialists, high-mileage aficionados, and riders who love the thought of a back-friendly riding position. SAVE PLUS micro-suspension and aluminum frame shaping provides compliance to smooth out the road. The Synapse also pulls double duty, with hidden rack and fender mounts taking the bike out of strict weekend duty and onto your daily commute. Anyway you choose to ride, Shimano's 11-speed 105 gruppo boasts unbelievably light shifting action, hill-topping gear range, and unmatched ergonomics. Maddux disc wheels are matched to Schwalbe Lugano tires for smooth-rolling and excellent cornering ability, and Promax mechanical disc brakes provide easy stopping power. Throw in a sleek, supportive Cannondale saddle, and a batch of Cannondale's own prime components and this bike is ready to take the long ride home.
