Rider Position / Bike Geometry

Performance focused, but slightly more upright for comfort. Perfect for long days in the saddle and confident handling on all road surfaces.

Innovation AND Technology

Asymmetric Frame Design

950G FrameLight, clean and easy to adjust flat mount discs on all models, with 142x12mm rear and 100x12mm front thru-axles.

Endurance Race Geometry

Endurance Race GeometryEndurance Race Geometry strikes the perfect performance balance between full race aggression and the relaxed upright comfort of other “endurance” rigs.

Full Fender Compatibility

Fender UpHidden mounts and a removable seat stay bridge ensure that the Synapse is fully fender-ready for long days with no spray.

Race Level Stiffness

Race Level StiffnessAn asymmetrically designed frame and fork balance pedalling and disc loads to deliver World Tour sprinter level stiffness. Get ready to lay down power and rail corners like you wouldn't believe.

Room for 32mm Tires

Room For 32Embrace the backroads, the rough roads, the highways and the byways. With room in the front and rear for tires as big as 32mm (measured/actual) and SAVE Micro-Suspension, Synapse is ready for any road, anywhere.

Save Micro-Suspension

Save Micro-SuspensionEngineered to tune the harshness out of choppy road surfaces, and tune you in to what’s happening at your tires’ contact patches, so that you can concentrate on the important stuff – like nailing the right line or beating the sun home.

25.4mm SAVE Seatpost

Save PostThe 25.4mm SAVE post and integrated seat binder work with the rest of the SAVE system to enhance comfort and reduce fatigue.

Size-Optimized Design

Size-Optimized DesignDistinct asymmetry in the fork and rear triangle enhances stiffness and improves braking performance.

Thru Axles

Thru AxlesThru-axles front and rear might seem like cost-of-entry these days, but often they're overkill. But ride this bike like it’s intended to be ridden and overkill, they ain't.

Flat Out, Flat Mount

Flat Out, Flat MountThe flat-mount brake standard should not be overlooked as a performance feature. Less hardware, less flex, easy to adjust, with no unnecessary weight. Flat out better.

Cable Control

Cable ControlElectrical, wireless, mechanical (hell, mount a flat-screen up there if you want), the Synapse’s intelligent and adaptable down-tube cable port keeps things clean, tidy and dialed.
