Cannondale - Synapse Ultegra ( Save: 34 % )
Light, smooth, fast and elegantly designed. The all-new Synapse is the ultimate machine for full-gas, full-day exploits.
When its just not for the sake of saving grams – in other words, when its combined with racey snap and sublime feel – there’s just no substitute for light weight. 950 grams for a frame like this? Believe it.
Light, clean and easy to adjust flat mount discs on all models, with 142x12mm rear and 100x12mm front thru-axles. Endurance Race Geometry strikes the perfect performance balance between full race aggression and the relaxed upright comfort of the other “endurance”, rigs. Hidden mounts and a removable seat stay bridge ensure that the synapse is fully fender-ready for long days with no spray. The seat tube splits asymmetrically to meet with the wide, 73mm BB30A for maximum stiffness with minimal weight.
An asymmetrically designed frame and fork balance pedalling and disc loads to deliver World Tour sprinter level stiffness. Get ready to lay down power and rail corners like you wouldn’t believe. Embrace the backroads, the rough roads, the highways and the byways. With room in the front and rear tyres as big as 32mm(measured/actual) and SAVE Micro-Suspension, Synapse is ready for any road, anywhere. Engineered to tune the harshness out of choppy road surfaces, and tune you into what’s happening at your tires’ contact patches.
The 25.4mm SAVE post and integrated seat binder work with the rest of the SAVE system to enhance comfort and reduce fatigue. Distinct asymmetry in the fork and rear triangle enhances stiffness and improves braking performance. Thru-axles front and rear might seem like cost-of-entry these days, but often they’re overkill. But ride this bike like it’s intended to be ridden and overkill, they ain’t.
