Lighter and stiffer than ever, Cannondale say the all-new Synapse is built to go hard, for longer. Retaining its endurance focus, the 2018 Synapse comes with flat mount disc brakes and can accommodate up to 32mm tyres. Team tested in the spring classics, the new Synapse is all about comfort, with SAVE PLUS micro-supsension in the frame and fork plus a new integrated SAVE SystemBar designed to provide optimum comfort at the front end and a SAVE seatpost to dampen road vibrations.

The new Synapse comes with a significant weight saving over the previous model, with a 56cm Hi-Mod tipping the scales at just 950g – a reduction of 220g. Cannondale also claim an improvement in stiffness, an increase of 9.4% gives the Synapse a more racy and responsive ride.

Key Features:

  • One of the lightest endurance frames at 950g.
  • SAVE micro-suspension and seat post improves comfort and reduces fatigue.
  • Room for 32mm tyres further enhances comfort.
  • Neat and tidy internal cable routing with adaptable down-tube cable port.
