Comfort, performance, and all-around versatility define Cannondale's Synapse Aluminum Rival, Disc. Synapse Endurance Race Geometry appeals to Gran Fondo specialists, high-mileage junkies, and riders who love the thought of a back-friendly ride. 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. A 22-speed SRAM Rival drivetrain features the fast, decisive shifting, while the SRAM HRD hydraulic road disc brakes are a revolution, with unmatched all-weather stopping power at your command. Maddux disc wheels are matched to Schwalbe Lugano tires for smooth-rolling and excellent cornering ability. Throw in a sleek, supportive Cannondale saddle, custom color-matched aluminum fenders, and a batch of Cannondale's own prime components and this bike is pretty much defines versatility.
