Elite-race performance meets all-day comfort.

SAVE PLUS Full Carbon Fork

Offset dropouts allow the fork blades to have the vertical compliance of a shallow rake fork, without sacrificing the Synapses nimble, precise handling. Refined carbon lay-up and SAVE shaping further enhance the forks vertical compliance.

SAVE PLUS Rear Stay Micro-Suspension System

A directional carbon lay-up and exaggerated vibration-absorbing tube shapes give the SAVE PLUS chain stay/seat stay system 13% more vertical deflection than the previous version, while actually improving the frames lateral and torsional stiffness.

Performance Geometry

Compared with our Elite race geometry, the Synapse features a 2-2.5 cm taller head tube, slightly relaxed head angle and longer wheelbase for a more upright riding position and a stable yet lively feel. It's confidence-inspiring, relaxing and it avoids the sluggish feel and awkward handling of many road bikes.

The combination of the Cannondale Carbon frame and the SRAM gruppo makes this the nicest bike I have owned. The shifting is incredible.

    Comments about cannondale SYNAPSE CARBON Hi-MOD 2 SRAM RED:

    Purchased this machine the last week of May. Have just over 2000 miles on it. This machine is very comfortable. Mine is equipped with a SRAM BB30 bottom bracket. Great power transfer. I ride a lot of climbs with long descents. The machine handles great at 40+ mph on the descents. My maximum downhill speed was recorded at 57.9 mph and the machine was completely stable. The only complaint I have is that when wet the bottom bracket makes a horrible squeaking noise. I found the best solution to the squeak is to apply silicon spray. My research indicates that crank squeak is a common issue with the BB30 bottom bracket. I would give this machine a 5 star rating were it not for the crank squeak.
