Road Reimagined

Roll smooth, roll fast, roll confident. Wherever the road takes you, roll with Synapse – our most comfortable, all-around, up-for-anything, pure road machine.

What it's for
Enjoyable road riding with comfort, speed, and finesse.

Where it thrives
The open road, up & down hills, rough pavement

What it's built for
Comfort, handling, going long

- Lightweight SmartForm C2 Alloy Frame w/ full carbon fork
- Shimano's legendary 105 12-speed group - incredible performance value
- Shimano 105 hydraulic disc brakes for smooth, controllable braking

So Smooth
With Synapse Alloy, comfort is built in. Synapse Alloy’s frame tubes are shaped and butted with absolute precision to help absorb road chatter and bumps without adding weight or isolating you from the ride experience.

So Comfortable
Synapse Alloy moves with both pace and grace. A comfortable riding position, planted handling, and the wonderful responsiveness of alloy under power, all create a bike that will help you feel in control and get more out of every ride.

So Capable
Synapse’s comfort and confidence brings utility, too. Balanced geometry, plenty of gear/bottle mounts, and clearance for 32mm wide tires that bring cushion and grip, mean Synapse is ready to rock on any road.

So Ready
Don’t sweat the small stuff. Synapse comes with a Contain top tube bag on some models. It’s easy to load and easy to reach while you’re riding. Bring snacks, tools, a map, or whatever else will help you go farther.

- Cannondale Wheel Sensor provides a connected ride experience - ride tracking, service reminders, and more.
- Light, durable DT Swiss R470 wheels with 700x30c Vittoria tires
- Custom top-tube bag and trainer axle caps included
