Cannondale Synapse Alloy

The Cannondale Synapse Alloy is not merely an aluminium copy of their award winning Carbon Synapse – it features mudguard mounts, clearance for larger volume tyres, and disc brakes that expand its versatility without sacrificing its sporting soul.

Spirited rides with a group, fast winter training rides, taking the long way home on the daily commute, or enjoying that charity ride in blissful comfort – the Synapse Alloy is built for enjoying the miles, at whatever pace you choose.

With taper butted and uniquely shaped tubes, joined by their trademark double pass smooth welds, the Synapse Alloy continues Cannondale’s tradition of aluminium mastery.  The Synapse Alloy was also the very first Cannondale road bike to feature disc brakes for great stopping power and exceptional control.

PERFORMANCE GEOMETRY – the new Synapse Alloy has a slightly higher headtube than Cannondale’s other road race bikes (around 2cm taller than a SuperSix Evo for example) but does not throw riders into an overly ‘sit-up-and beg’ position that can feel sluggish over long distances. Instead, it offers a slightly more relaxed riding position which, when combined with its longer longer wheelbase, inspires confidence and maintains an enjoyable fast ride with enhanced levels of comfort and stable handling.

SMARTFORM ALLOY CONSTRUCTION™:  SmartForm construction allows Cannondale to make the lightest, best riding aluminium frames on the market.   By pairing three decades of accumulated aluminium construction experience with the advanced design capabilities of their CAAD Cannondale Advanced Aluminium Design) Flow Modelling Process, SmartForm techniques deliver incredibly precise wall thickness distribution and tube shapes, concentrating material exactly where needed to maximize stiffness and strength, while shaving every last extraneous gram from the structure. Internally, all butting is accomplished via smooth, tapered transitions to eliminate the abrupt changes in material thickness that cause stress-risers.

CARBON BLADED FORK – carbon fork blades with integrated SAVE features provide additional comfort and sharp handling.

SAVE PLUS REAR STAY MICRO-SUSPENSION SYSTEM – by flattening and butting the chain stays and triaxially forming the seat stays, Cannondale have created an elegant 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.

MUDGUARD and RACK MOUNTS – Subtle, understated, but effective, mounts add to the Synapse’s versatility.

ENHANCED TYRE CLEARANCE – the new Synapse alloy frame has increased clearance for larger tyres, extending its performance, comfort and range.  It comfortably fits most brands of tyre up to 30mm, can also accommodate some 32mm tyres, and with mudguards fitted it will easily handle 28mm tyres without clogging  as well as a number of 30mm tyres, depending on tread pattern/thickness.

“the extent to which the frame manages to take the buzz out of the road while keeping plenty of zing in the ride is quite incredible…it’s the fact the Synapse manages to be the fastest and most comfortable that really floored usCycle Active (group test winner).

” THE SYNAPSE HAS A GREAT CALMING RIDE QUALITY, WHICH ISN’T TO SAY IT’S NOT QUICK, BECAUSE WHEN HUSTLED IT CAN BE, BUT IT HAS A HABIT OF MAKING YOU FEEL MORE INVOLVED WITH THE RIDE, AND TO RELAX AND ENJOY THE JOURNEY MORE. AND EVEN WHEN WE WERE HAPPILY CRUISING THE LANES, OUR SPEED EXCEEDED OUR PERCEIVED EFFORT, WHICH CAN ONLY BE A GOOD THING” – CYCLING PLUS MAGAZINE
