- RACE-LEVEL PERFORMANCE - New Hi-Mod frame weighs just 950 g (over 220 g lighter) with a level of stiffness normally reserved for World Tour sprinters’ rigs. This thing is fast.
- ENDURANCE RACE GEOMETRY - The rider position perfectly balances low, forward efficiency and upright comfort, for a “just-right” feel that encourages full-gas exploits and all-day sessions.
- SIZE-OPTIMIZED DESIGN - The new Synapse takes Cannondale's size-specific construction philosophy to a whole new level. Not only does every frame size get its own rider-appropriate carbon layup and tube dimensions, they also utilize three different fork steerer and headtube diameters with three different fork offsets to ensure that every rider enjoys the same ride-feel and handling, regardless of size.
- WIDE RANGING CAPABILITIES - With full clearance for tires up to a whopping 32 mm wide, and subtle, hidden fender mounts, the new Synapse is ready and willing to explore the wilder side of endurance riding.
