Fast, light and oh-so-smooth, the Synapse Carbon is an incredibly well-fitting and forgiving road machine.

Long adventures, or rides on terrible pavement shouldn't be torture. Your bike should make every mile better, and that's the thinking behind Cannondale's Synapse Carbon. The frame and fork are built from Cannondale's own BallisTec carbon fiber, allowing the bike to be compliant over rough pavement and railway crossings. while still offering high torsional strength for excellent power transfer and handling. The Synapse's seat stays and seat tube are carefully designed to take advantage of the engineered flex that Cannondale calls Synapse Active Vibration Elimination, or SAVE. SAVE allows the bike to soak up low and high frequency vibration and impacts that can fatigue any rider, no matter how fit. The "recipe" of the carbon fiber in the Synapse's frame is also designed to soak up vibration throughout the bike to quiet road buzz and washboard tarmac. This high tech materials engineering also extends to the Synapse Carbon's fork, keeping the rider's hands, arms and shoulders happier during a long day in the saddle. The shape of the fork blades are also asymmetrical, alllowing the fork to be lighter while retaining the strength needed for effective braking.

 

This all makes sense as long as the bike fits well. Cannondale makes the fit more upright across all the Synapse models compared to their SuperSix or SystemSix bikes, allowing a wider range of riders -and rider flexibilities- to get comfortable. The geometry and handling is more relaxed, bestowing a stable feel when tackling broken pavement.

 

When operating the bike is easier, you can just concentrate on the biking. Shimano's electronic Ultegra Di2 shifting lets you do exactly that, with lightning-quick operation and an intuitive feel. Every shift is perfect. Every. Single.Time. Shifting is done from the same lever position as the mechanical version of Ultegra, with the same effort as clicking a mouse. The DI2 battery is submerged inside the downtube and is recharged (every 900-1,000 miles) at a port on the down tube.

 

The Ultegra Di2 drivetrain on the Synapse Carbon features an alloy Cannondale Si 50/34T compact crankset and 11-34T Shimano 105 cassette, bringing a 1-to-1 ratio along to tackle fearsome inclines. The alloy Fulcrum Racing wheels are wrapped with 700x28c Vittroia Rubuno Pro tires, offering light weight and a smooth ride. Keeping speed in check is the job of Shimano's hydraulic Ultegra disc brakes, bringing confident stopping power in all conditions, rain or shine.

 

Fabric provides the Scoop Women's Sport saddle, adding a comfortable perch for day-long expeditions. The narrow-diameter Cannondale C2 carbon fiber seatpost is yet another element of the Synapse's smooth ride. An alloy Cannondale C2 stem and alloy shallow-drop C2 road handlebar completes this excellent century challenger.
