Cannondale Synapse Road Bikes

An Introduction to Cannondale's long distance runner

The Cannondale Synapse range of bikes are a diverse collection of Road Bikes suitable for those who like to ride long distances in comfort or to ride shorter distances in comfort too. Although Endurance bikes are primarily designed for long rides there is nothing to stop you being able to use them for shorter rides as well. The extra comfort ensures this bike will give many hours of fun for whatever style of riding you prefer.

The Synapse is one of only a few models where there are variations on the frame depending on the application. There is the Elite Race Geometry for those who want the comfort but with a more aggressive position or the Comfort Road Geometry for a more laid back riding postiion. The Synapse range also gives you the option of disc brakes and electronic gearing to keep riders at the forefront of current technology.

Cannondale S.A.V.E Technology

S.A.V.E Plus

The SAVE PLUS system is a radical three-part system designed to handle anything the road can throw your way.

Part 1 : Carbon Layup

The Synapse's carbon layup was designed to maximize something called "inter-laminar shear dissipation". Basically this means that the fibers are oriented in such a way that vibrations get caught up in the layers and are diffused before they can make it to rider. This helps tune out that energy-sapping road buzz and keeps you fresher.

Part 2: Rear Triangle and Fork

Much like with SPEED SAVE, in SAVE PLUS the rear triangle and fork are designed to work together as a system, allowing the wheels to track the ground whether the rider is seated or standing. The seat stays feature a unique helixed shape that both bends and compresses under load like a spring, while the fork has a curved shape and offset dropouts that enable it to offer balanced vertical compliance with excellent steering precision.

Part 3: Seat Post and Seat Tube

The smaller diameter 25.4mm round seatpost offers more compliance than larger diameter posts, an effect which is amplified by the collarless, wedge style seat clamp design. Without a seatcollar extending above the top tube, more of the seatpost is exposed and able to flex and absorb shock. The seatpost is complimented by a seat tube that, due to its carbon layup and scalloped, flattened design, is able to bow in concert with the seatpost, maximizing comfort when the rider is seated.

Cannondale SERG Technology

S.E.R.G. Synapse Endurance Race Geometry

With its slightly taller head tube, slightly longer wheelbase and slightly slacker head angle, S.E.R.G. strikes the ideal balance between pure race positioning and upright comfort. Perfect for long days in the saddle and confident handling on all road surfaces.

Cannondale Synapse Carbon Range

The Carbon Synpase series are for people who live for the love of the ride. Fit, serious high performance riders who set their sights beyond the tightly defined world of the pure racer; Gran Fondo specialists, all-day-epic riders, and those who long to venture off the smooth and easy.

Cannondale Synapse Alloy Road Bikes

The Synapse alloy models are the ideal first road bikes for someone looking for comfort, performance, versatility and value in equal measure. Cannondale aluminum construction is focused on delivering the strongest, lightest, best handling frame possible. Premium 6069 and 6061 alloy tube sets are highly manipulated to extract every ounce of performance. Double-pass welds provide stronger, smoother joints and eliminate the need for internal reinforcements or external welded-on gussets. Each frame is heat treated after welding to maximize the strength and hardness of the aluminum, increasing long-term durability. These and other processes allow Cannondale to continue to offer a lifetime warranty on each of its alloy frames and forks
