Cannondale Synapse Carbon Disc Dura Ace Road Bike 2018
Lightweight, responsive and comfortable, the Cannondale Synapse Road Bike is a high-quality choice for the discerning cyclist wanting to cover long distances at speed. Equipped with Shimano's Dura-Ace 9100 groupset, disc brake technology, and a premium carbon fibre construction, the Synapse is suitable for marathon riding, hill climbing and anything in between.
Constructed from Cannondale's BallisTec carbon fibre, the frameset is lightweight, stiff and durable. Boasting a frame weight that sits at the lower end of the endurance bike spectrum, this makes a top choice for the rider looking to tackle undulating courses with optimum efficiency. Fully asymmetric from front to rear, this bike assures the rider of enhanced stiffness, ensuring a more responsive ride out on the road.
Whilst important, stiffness is only half of the story with the Synapse. Offering high levels of comfort, this frame utilises SAVE engineering to add areas of flex, allowing vertical compliance without compromising lateral stiffness. This construction ensures stiffness where it matters most, whilst still ensuring an immensely comfortable ride, regardless of the terrain up ahead.
Making use of a full Dura-Ace 9100 groupset, this bike offers the slick, reliable performance expected from Shimano's premium mechanical offering. Featuring an 11-speed 11-30T cassette and a 50/34T compact chainset configuration, you'll be able to spin up the steepest of climbs and sprint along the flat with equal efficiency. Additionally, this bike makes use of Shimano's hydraulic disc brakes for responsive and modulated stopping power in any weather conditions.
Completed with Vittoria Rubino 28mm tyres and rolling on a Fulcrum Racing 5000 Wheelset, the Synapse is a tough and versatile option for the rider wanting to ride long distances and unpredictable terrain with unrivalled comfort, speed, and control.
