So you can always find the right gear for a comfortable, efficient pedaling cadence, the Synapse NEO is offered with a double chainring crank - the only Bosch-equipped road bike that can do so.
To provide nimble handling, comfort, and wide-range gear options, the Synapse NEO was engineered around our Ai offset drivetrain. By moving the drivetrain 6mm to the right, Ai allows for very short chainstays, without compromising tire clearance and makes it possible to run a double chainring crank. And as a bonus, its creates a stiffer, stronger rear wheel.
For handling that manages to be both confidence-inspiring and exhilarating, the Synapse NEO uses Cannondale's OutFront Steering Geometry. Pairing a relatively slack head angle with a long 55mm fork offset, OutFront Geometry increases stability at speed, while maintaining a quick, agile steering feel. Perfect for the increased weight and speed of an e-road bike.
The modern, organic forms and stylish integration of the PowerTube battery, custom motor-mounting node and motor cover give the Synapse NEO a holistic look that's unmistakably Cannondale.
Adding to the Synapse NEO's versatility, an elegant removable fender bridge lets you add protection when the weather turns foul, without cluttering the looks when it's nice.
Ready for front and rear lights, so you can outlast the sun.
The hill-crushing range, elegant simplicity and great chain retention of the 1x11 drivetrain is perfect for the bumpy backroads this bike is meant for.
Proper road speed meets real comfort and serious rough terrain capability, thanks to 650b wheels and high-volume 47c tires.
Bosch’s Generation 3 Active Line Plus drive unit delivers big power and does it so smoothly that you barely notice it - except for how it makes you feel limitless. It's a mid-motor design that’s ideal for road bikes thanks to its light weight, smooth and silent power delivery, and drag-free pedaling beyond the cut-out threshold.
Unlike many e-road bikes, the Synapse NEO is designed with a full 500Wh PowerTube battery, which integrates cleanly into the downtube and packs enough energy for even the longest days. Go as long as you want -the Synapse NEO will get you home.
The Synapse NEO's frame geometry deftly balances the sporty, engaging ride-feel of a true road bike with the comfort of a more upright rider position. With road-smoothing 700 x 32c tires and SAVE Micro-Suspension, the Synapse NEO will keep you comfortably in control on even the longest, roughest days.
