Show Description

A bike for the long haul. With an endurance-focused design, the Synapse family from Cannondale serves riders who love long rides. You can schedule all-day road time, and skip the post-session sore neck or shoulders. With smooth componentry, you'll have no problem keeping up with Sunday morning group rides. Performance level design makes this a reliable road machine for fondos, mass rides, or faster-than-car commuting.

  • Endurance-focused geometry reduces strain on your neck and shoulders for long rides.
  • Aluminum frame with carbon fork is stiff, efficient and light with good vibration dampening.
  • Compact crank is light with a versatile 2x10 speed gear range.
  • Shimano Tiagra shifters smoothly change your gears and keep your hands on the brakes.
  • Shimano Tiagra derailleurs reliably and precisely move the chain.
  • Mechanical disc brakes give responsive control in dry or damp conditions.
  • Stiff double-wall alloy rims are stiff and nimble on the road.
  • 700 x 28 tires balance comfort and performance.

The hub affects a bike’s rolling efficiency. Internally geared hubs require significantly less maintenance.


Cassettes with a smaller range allow you to go faster; a bigger range makes climbing hills easier.
