Don't let a bad road ruin your ride. Make terrible tarmac your playground.


Neglected tarmac is out there waiting to make life difficult for riders on pizza-cutter tires and harsh-riding frames. But the Cannondale Synapse is up for the challenge. Cannondale's BallisTec carbon fiber has been shaped and engineered to fly across rough and choppy pavement with comfortable compliance, thanks to Synapse Active Vibration Elimination (or SAVE) micro-suspension. The chainstays, top tube and seat tube absorb vibrations and impacts with aplomb, making miles of bad roads simply... roads. The frame and BallisTec carbon fiber fork are not only comfortable, but also very light, helping to make short work of challenging climbs. A relaxed geometry and upright fit allow a wider range of riders -and rider flexibilities- to get comfortable for century rides (or longer). Internal cable routing and a hidden seat post binder add a sleek look to the Synapse Carbon. 12mm thru-axle dropouts add performance while giving the bike a cleaner, more refined look.


Shimano's recently redesigned 11-speed 105 components make up the drivetrain of the Synapse Carbon. The adjustable-reach dual-control levers, front derailleur, long-cage Shadow-style rear derailleur and 11-34T cassette are all Shimano 105 units, ensuring excellent functionality, easy operation and long service life. An alloy Cannondale 50/34T compact crankset does power delivery duties while anchored in a press-fit BB30a bottom bracket. Yes, that's a 1-to-1 gear ratio for tackling endless ascents!


28-spoke alloy wheels are wrapped with lightly treaded 700x30c Vittoria Zaffiro Pro tires, providing excellent traction and a smooth feel over crumbling pave'. Shimano's hydraulic 105 disc brakes offer excellent lever feedback and contol in all conditions, rain or shine. Alloy Cannondale 3 components make up the cockpit of the Synapse Carbon, including the stem, road handlebar and seatpost. A Fabric Scoop Shallow completes this century-ready machine.
