Cannondale Synapse Carbon 2 RL Disc Road Bike 2023
For 2022, the Cannondale Synapse Carbon 2 RL Disc Road Bike features an all-new frame and cutting-edge SmartSense technology to take your riding experience to the next level. Cannondale has taken the winning Synapse formula and enhanced it, with this latest edition delivering a faster, more comfortable and refined ride character. Comfortable yet fast, the truncated tubeset issues free speed, while the Proportional Response construction ensures consistent performance across the size range.
Unique to the Synapse is the SmartSense system. It acts as a second set of eyes and ears to keep you safe on busy roads, incorporating a traffic-sensing radar system and bright front and rear lights that automatically toggles on/off to match the ambient light conditions. The Foresite front light has been made in collaboration with industry experts Leyzne and delivers 350 lumens of brightness to illuminate your low-light rides, keeping you safe and visible on the road. The rear light/radar system utilises Garmin Varia technology and can sense vehicles up to 140m away, helping to keep your eyes on the road and not over your shoulder.
The specification features the ever-impressive Shimano Ultegra 11-speed drivetrain, which combines slick shifting performance with a low, race-friendly weight. The Fulcrum Rapid Red 900 wheels are lightweight for instantaneous acceleration whilst still offering excellent durability, and hydraulic Shimano disc brakes deliver consistent braking power in all conditions.
- Subtle aerodynamic frame changes deliver free speed, without any additional weight
- Wide tyre clearance for up to 35mm road tyres
- An all-new frame design sees enhanced compliance to boost ride comfort
- The SmartSense battery and integrated lights work to improve your visibility and awareness on the road

- Proportional Response Construction frame design ensures the same ride quality across the entire size range
