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.


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


  • 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.
