Cannondale Synapse Hi-Mod Disc Ultegra Road Bike 2017
The Cannondale Synapse Hi-Mod Disc Ultegra Road Bike 2017 is a high performance endurance road bike. Its blend of Hi-Mod carbon fibre, within the frame and fork, alongside Shimano Ultegra componentry and CZero Carbon wheels is a fantastic, fast combination.
The Cannondale Synapse Disc BalisTec Hi-MOD Carbon Di2 ready SAVE PLUS BB30a frame resides at the higher end of the Cannondale carbon spectrum, using a high carbon quality that has been strenuously engineered to lessen the overall tube shaping and weight, but provide the same rigidity, strength and durability as their standard modular carbon.
SAVE PLUS technology is also incorporated into the frame and fork. Much like the suspension on F1 cars, SAVE PLUS is engineered to help the bike roll faster, not simply to make it more comfortable. Emphasising light weight and torsional rigidity, SAVE PLUS delivers improved rolling speed, better acceleration, and dramatically improved cornering speed without negatively affecting power transfer.
As the Cannondale Synapse is an endurance race bike, it would only make sense to use S.E.R.G (Synapse Endurance Race Geometry) - Cannondale’s ideal balance between a pure race position and the upright comfort you need on longer distances. POWER Pyramid also adds to this, with the seat tube splitting asymmetrically to accommodate a new, wider bottom bracket. This increases stiffness without adding weight, which in turn increases your power transfer for a more efficient ride.
To keep up with these incredible features, Cannondale have sought the help of Shimano, with their excellent combination of R785 hydraulic disc brakes and Ultegra 6800, 11-speed gearing. When you’re spinning up, or attacking on the climbs, you’ll be grateful you have such a capable drivetrain, and then when you get to the top, the R785 hydraulic disc brakes come into their own on the descents - inspiring confidence and giving the right amount of bite at the exact time you need it.
The Shimano R785 hydraulic disc brakes provide all the wet-weather, high-performance braking you need when tackling those technical descents. Adding versatility to your ride, you can be sure you’ll be stopping safely at end of the descent when using these powerful disc brakes.
When you’re pushing the group on or sprinting out the saddle, you want to know your wheels aren’t going to hold you back, and that’s why Cannondale have instilled their confidence in CZero’s Carbon Disc Clincher wheelset and Schwalbe ONE 700x28c clincher tyres. Together, this wheel and tyre provide the stiffness, grip and lightning fast, powerful acceleration you need when training or racing.
