Outwardly the new Cannondale Synapse may look very similar to the previous model. However, appearances can be deceptive. The new platform is a completely different bike with a completely different carbon layup and several subtle but significant differences, the main being that the new model will only be available with disc brakes.
First launched in 2006 the Cannondale Synapse is a bike known for combining great ride quality, confident handling, relaxed geometry and versatility. With the race-orientated SuperSix Evo, Cannondale places the emphasis on stiffness, low weight and aggressive geometry, whereas with the Synapse the design objectives centre around compliance, a smoother ride, greater integration and increased versatility (the ability to ride on a wider range of surfaces).
Within the endurance road bike category, the Cannondale Synapse is a highly regarded machine that has won many awards and fans.
