Cannondale's Synapse Carbon Hi-MOD Black Inc. splits the difference, pairing all-day-long, all-day-strong comfort with uncompromising speed and efficiency. Cannondale's Synapse Endurance Race Geometry and women's-specific design appeals to Gran Fondo specialists, high-mileage junkies, and riders who love the thought of a long, winding road. The Ballistec Hi-MOD carbon frame transfers all your power smoothly and damps road vibration, while SRAM's Red 22 components with twenty-two climb-destroying gears, trademark precision and snappy action, as well as Cannondale's remarkable SISL2 crankset, makes the miles fly by. Mavic Ksyrium wheels are paired with their own Yksion tires, a match made in corner-carving heaven. And, when you start to have a little too much fun, SRAM's powerful Red 22 disc brakes offer smooth, easily modulated stopping power. But it's the details, like a Fizik Vesta saddle and Cannondale's own ultra-light aluminum components, that truly set this bike apart. With fit and performance like this, don't be surprised if you find yourself taking the long road home on your next ride.
