2017 Cannondale Synapse Carbon

Awarded "Bike of the Year" for two years running, the Synapse Carbon is a perfect balance between raw power and all day ride-ability.  Its race-proven combination of endurance geometry, light weight and road-smoothing comfort has won it everything from Spring Classics to Bike of the Year accolades. It might just be the best all-around road bike Cannondale have ever made.

S.E.R.G. SYNAPSE ENDURANCE RACE GEOMETRY: With its slightly taller head tube, slightly longer wheelbase and slightly slacker head angle, S.E.R.G. strikes the ideal balance between pure race positioning and upright comfort. Perfect for long days in the saddle and confident handling on all road surfaces.

SAVE PLUS MICRO-SUSPENSION SYSTEM: The SAVE PLUS Micro-suspension system is a three part system, comprised of the carbon lay-up, the rear triangle and fork, and the seat post and seat tube, all designed to collaborate seamlessly to reduce vibration, improve handling, and increase comfort.

  • SAVE PLUS MICRO-SUSPENSION SYSTEM (REAR TRIANGLE AND FORK): The frame and fork's carbon layup is designed to optimize high-frequency vibration dissipation, reducing road buzz. The radical helixed shapes of the chain stays and seat stays work in conjunction with the offset dropout fork to allow the wheels to track over imperfections in the road for better handling and control, seated or standing.
  • SAVE PLUS MICRO-SUSPENSION SYSTEM (SEAT POST AND SEAT TUBE): The elegantly scalloped seat tube and the smaller diameter 25.4mm seatpost are designed to flex together to provide more comfort when seated. The integrated collarless seat clamp allows more of the seatpost to flex than with a traditional clamp.

POWER PYRAMID/BB30A: The seat tube splits asymmetrically to meet a new wider 73mm BB30A bottom bracket, for maximum stiffness with minimal weight.
