The Cannondale Synapse Disc Apex 1 SE is the ultimate machine for full-gas, full-day exploits. It's performance-focused, but with a slightly more upright position for comfort—perfect for long days in the saddle and confident handling on all road surfaces. The BallisTec carbon frame weighs in at a mere 950 grams, with a racy snap and sublime feel. An asymmetrical fork balances disc loads to deliver World Tour sprinter-level stiffness. Cannondale's SAVE frame technology tunes out harsh choppy road surfaces and tunes you in to what's happening at your tires, so you can concentrate on nailing the right line or beating the sun home. And with room for tires as big as 32mm, you can embrace the back roads, rough roads, highways and byways.
You’ll be rolling on WTB Exposure 30mm tires wrapped around WTB STP i19 rims for outstanding strength and durability. And, with SRAM's Apex 1x11-speed drivetrain, you'll have precise, streamlined shifting with a gear range to scale any climb. Apex hydraulic disc brakes offer confidence-inspiring power and smooth modulation, so you can push your limits a little bit further on the descent. Cannondale's C3 aluminum components and a Fabric Scoop Radius Sport saddle round out this distinctly high-class machine.
