Paved, gravel, chip seal—it doesn't matter, it all just adds to the adventure. No matter what impulse drives you, the Synapse's perfect blend of race-day prowess, spot-on handling and all-day comfort says "get after it". 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. A luxurious Shimano Ultegra Di2 drivetrain is silent and precise, while Shimano hydraulic disc brakes provide superb stopping power and modulation. The Cannondale handlebar, stem, and seatpost are both lightweight and durable, and the Fabric Scoop saddle provides svelte support.
