Color: Matte Silver


Size: 48cm


A carbon fiber bicycle used to be the domain of racers around the world, but Cannondale was determined to make it a material for everyone to ride! Welcome to the Synapse Carbon!


The Synapse Carbon was built to be not just light and responsive, but smooth and comfortable over rough pavement. The BallisTec carbon fiber that makes up the Synapse's complete frame and fork is Cannondale's own "recipe" not found in an uncomfortably rigid competition bicycle. The Synapse's BallisTec carbon fiber seat stays and seat tube are cleverly shaped to flex slightly when traversing rough and choppy pavement. Called Synapse Active Vibration Elimination (or SAVE), the Synapse's BallisTec carbon fiber construction makes every mile smoother. All this results in a fresher rider that can ride faster for longer. If you look closely at the bottom of the seat tube, you'll see what looks like a mouse hole that goes clean through the frame. That feature anchors the bottom bracket and press-fit BB30a crankset, giving the Synapse Carbon flex-free power delivery with every turn of the pedals. Up front, the head tube is tapered from 1-1/8" to 1-1/4", improving handling in high-speed corners and descents. Cannondale sweats the details to make their bikes better, like internal cable routing for a clean look and a hidden seatpost binder for sleek lines. The fit of the Synapse Carbon is more upright than traditional road machines allowing a wider range of riders -and rider flexibilities- to fit comfortably.


Shimano's 11-speed 105 components are at your fingertips, ensuring lightning-quick gear changes and long service life. The Shimano 105 levers feature an adjustable reach, allowing smaller hands to fit more comfortably. The long-cage Shimano 105 rear derailleur shifts across an 11-32T cassette, providing a massive gearing range without the need for a klutzy-shifting triple crankset. The 50/34T alloy Cannondale Si compact crankset does power delivery duties.


The Synapse Carbon's wheels are wrapped with 700x25c Schwalbe Lugano tires, adding a smooth feel and confident grip in turns and descents. Tektro caliper brakes help reign in speed without adding serious weight to the package. A Cannondale Stage Ergo women's saddle sits atop an alloy seatpost, while alloy C3 road handlebars and stem complete the cockpit of this century-ready machine.
