SYNAPSE CARBON 6 TIAGRA

< back

average rating

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.

              Bike fit great from the start. I can power through much faster than my previous aluminum frame. Only thing I don't like is having to upgrade the crank set because I run out of gear!

                    I ride this 40 miles a day to work and back, and it's fantastic! It's light, fast and responsive. The frame absorbs a lot of the road service, and bikes comfortable.
