Shop with confidence. If it’s not working out, you can return it (consumables, electronics, undergarments and swimwear excluded).
Really. If it's not up to snuff after you use it (a couple times) you can still bring it back. It lasts longer than 30 days, but not forever. We'll be fair about it.


Playful handling, a top-tier groupset, and plenty of tech to keep you seen. For 2022 Cannondale has updated their versatile Synapse frame to include their SmartSense™ technology. This clever bit of kit includes a frame mounted battery, headlight, and taillight. From spicing up your commute, to weekend tours, to giving you the edge on your next club ride, the Synapse 105 wears many hats, and it wears them well. Shimano’s venerable 105 groupset delivers instant shifts and precise velocity control. Little touches like hidden rack mounts, a removeable fender bridge and clearance for larger tires, even give you the option to explore the roads less traveled.
