On anything from fast group rides to daily commutes, the Synapse's low weight, comfortable sportive position and smooth ride will help you fall in love with cycling. The aluminum frame features Cannondale's Endurance Geometry for stable, confident handling and a more upright riding position. The Synapse SAVE carbon fork further reduces weight while smoothing road buzz. The Schwalbe tires offer confident cornering and descending. Shimano's 8-speed Claris drivetrain gives you a wide range to tackle any hill, while Tektro brakes ensure smooth, powerful stopping. Cannondale provides their own high quality stem, seatpost, and handlebar to dial in their trademark Synapse position.
