Cannondale’s endurance bikes are some of the best in the world, and this Synapse is a stellar example. The BallisTec carbon frame is built to be stiff and responsive in the front, while micro-suspension elements like slim seat stays and a flexible seatpost make the ride much more forgiving. It can handle the rough asphalt and repaired road and the comfort doesn’t compromise the performance. This build weighs in at 18 pounds 6 ounces with a 50/34t Shimano Ultegra drivetrain and WTB KOM alloy wheels. The Synapse is the perfect bike for every ride, whether you want to take it on an evening training ride or put it to the test in a race.
