Cannondale Synapse Carbon 3 L Disc Road Bike 2022

With its all-new frame and smart features, the Cannondale Synapse Carbon 3 L Disc Road Bike is the next evolution in comfort and speed on the tarmac. Redesigned for this latest edition, the Synapse takes all the features for which it was lauded and improves them. Enhanced frame compliance increases comfort on rough terrain, damping vibrations to reduce fatigue on longer rides. It's no slouch, however, with targeted stiffness allowing for rapid acceleration and responsive geometry ensuring precise handling. 

For 2022 the Synapse range incorporates SmartSense features, with this L edition featuring integrated front and rear lights with an ambient light sensor for an automatic on/off toggle. A BSA threaded bottom bracket reduces the risk of unwanted creaks, and tube-in-tube internal routing makes home maintenance all the easier. 

The lightweight frame uses a Proportional Response carbon construction, which features a unique layup for each frame size, keeping the ride quality consistent across the range. Hidden mudguard mounts boost versatility, and the wide frame clearance sees enough room for up to 35c tyres. 

An 11-speed Shimano 105 drivetrain offers excellent durability and crisp shifting performance whilst allowing the drivetrain to be upgraded with 11-speed Ultegra or Dura-Ace components once they need replacing. Hydraulic Shimano disc brakes create consistent braking performance in all weathers, with their smooth power delivery bringing confidence on steep descents. 


  • 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
  • SmartSense compatible design
  • Threaded BSA bottom bracket and tube-in-tube internal routing offer simple home maintenance
  • Hidden rack/mudguard mounts improve versatility
  • Adaptable design with a dynamic and responsive ride character
  • Proportional Response Construction frame design ensures the same ride quality across the entire size range
  • Durable Shimano 105 groupset delivers crisp, 11-speed shifting
  • Hydraulic Shimano disc brakes provide confidence in wet-weather conditions
