Description

Quite possibly, the perfect first road bike. An upright position for greater riding comfort combined with silky smooth SAVE PLUS technology gives first-time road riders, commuters and fitness-lovers a versatile blend of comfort, speed and value. Advanced alloy construction creates a lightweight, responsive frame with the crisp handling you’d expect from a Cannondale. Subtle, understated rack and fender mounts are ready to get to work or seek out adventure.

RIDER PROFILE:

The ideal first road bike for someone looking for comfort, performance, versatility and value in equal measure.

TECHNOLOGIES

  • SAVE PLUS Alloy Micro-Suspension
    By flattening and butting the chain stays and triaxially forming the seat stays, we create a rear stay assembly that allows significant deflection vertically to absorb road shock and vibration, while staying extremely rigid laterally for power transfer and confident cornering.
  • Endurance Geometry
    Compared with our Elite race geometry, the Synapse geometry features a taller head tube (2-2.5cm taller), gently sloping top tube, slightly relaxed head angle and longer wheelbase. This combination provides a more upright riding position and a lively, yet stable feel. It’s confidence inspiring and relaxing but avoids the sluggish feel and awkward handling of many “comfort” road bikes.
  • Optimized 6061 Alloy Construction
    Cannondale’s legendary double-pass smooth welds join optimally shaped taper-butted tubes for a great combination of svelte light weight, stiffness and durability.
  • Carbon Bladed Fork
    Carbon fork blades with integrated SAVE features provide additional comfort and sharp handling.
