Let Cannondale's Synapse Hi-MOD Disc Red change your notion of what "endurance" means. Speed is yours thanks to the Ballistec Hi-MOD carbon frame that transfers your power instantly and damps road vibration, meanwhile Cannondale's Endurance Race Geometry strikes the ideal balance between pure race positioning and upright comfort—perfect for Gran Fondo specialists, high-mileage junkies, and riders who love the thought of a long, winding road. Anywhere you roll, SRAM's Red 22 drivetrain features fast, positive shifts spun by Cannondale's SiSL2 crankset, itself a marvel of power transfer and efficiency. CZero carbon wheels devour the climbs and fly across the flats, while the supple Schwalbe tires are a pavement-smoothing 28mms wide, all the better for rough roads and chip seal. And, powerful hydraulic road disc brakes, courtesy of SRAM, offer incredible all-weather stopping power. But it's the performance-oriented details—like a Fabric Scoop saddle and Cannondale's own ultra-light aluminum components—that will make you redefine your idea of "endurance" bicycles.
