It's tough being good at everything, but Cannondale's Synapse has the "all-around" thing dialed in pretty well. The BallisTec carbon frame features Cannondale's endurance race geometry for a perfect balance between pure race position and upright comfort. The shaped blades and offset dropouts of the tapered SAVE Plus fork allow the front wheel to track smoothly over rough surfaces for amazing comfort and control. Shimano's Ultegra components provide stellar shifting, and Shimano hydraulic disc brakes have stopping power like you won't believe. Mavic Aksium WTS rims are lightweight, tough, and accelerate with a wicked snap. Bring on the miles, because Cannondale's handlebar, stem, and seatpost will have you situated perfectly on your machine.
