Cannondale's Synapse Hi-MOD Ultegra Disc measures riding pleasure in miles covered and new roads discovered. Cannondale's Synapse Endurance Race Geometry 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 your power smoothly and damps road vibration, while Shimano's 22-speed Ultegra drivetrain delivers a climb-conquering gear range powered by Cannondale's remarkably efficient Hollowgram Si crankset. CZero carbon clincher wheels devour the climbs and hammer on the flats, while the hand-made Schwalbe tires are a pavement smoothing 28mm's wide, all the better for mixed terrain riding and pinch flat reduction. And, Shimano's revolutionary RS685 hydraulic road disc brakes boast as much smooth, all-weather stopping power as you could desire. But it's the details, like a Fabric Scoop saddle and Cannondale's own ultra-light aluminum components, that truly set this bike apart. With fit and performance like this, riding pleasure comes easy.
