Road Reimagined
Roll smooth, roll fast, roll confident. Wherever the road takes you, roll with Synapse – our most comfortable, all-around, up-for-anything, pure road machine.

Key Benefits

So Smooth

With Synapse, comfort is built in. Discreet flex zones in the rear triangle, seat tube and seatpost absorb road chatter and bumps without adding weight or isolating you from the ride experience.

So Fast

Lightweight carbon construction. Subtle aerodynamic shaping of the frame and fork. Size-specific design for perfectly tuned stiffness. It all adds up to a machine that loves to fly.

So Capable

With a comfortably balanced riding position, confidence-inspiring handling, room for 35mm wide Tyres for cushion and grip, and plenty of gear/bottle mounts, Synapse is ready to rock on any road, anywhere.

So Brilliant

Ride assured, with increased visibility and enhanced awareness out on the road. Our SmartSense system of integrated lights and rear-facing radar makes it easy to ride smart.

 

Wide Ranging Capabilities

Clearance for 35mm Tyres lets you venture beyond the perfectly paved with comfort and grip – or ride through the wet season with full fenders.

Specially Smooth

Comfort and control you feel, not see. Everything you need for a bump-absorbing smooth ride is engineered into the frame shape and carbon layup – giving you a light, sleek ride that’s unlike anything else.

Tuned for the Rider

Our Proportional Response size-specific construction creates optimal frame stiffness and compliance for each frame size, so that every rider experiences Synapse’s glorious ride feel.

Mount Up

Mounts and eyelets galore means you can equip Synapse for whatever the day has in store, including full fender compatibility. Even rain can’t keep Synapse down.

SmartSense Equipped

SmartSense is connected and ready from the first spin of the wheel, so you can hit the road with the peace of mind of intelligent lights and radar. More visibility. Better awareness. Less pre-ride fiddling.

Cannondale and their dealers have come a long way since our birth in a crowded loft above a pickle factory in 1971. The company grew quickly during its early years. Cannondale introduced the cycling industry's first bicycle trailer, the Bugger, and added successful cycling apparel and accessory lines while earning a strong reputation for innovation and quality. That reputation proved invaluable when Cannondale introduced its first bicycle, a Touring model, in 1983. Cannondale raised the cycling world's eyebrows by building their bicycles around handcrafted, oversized aluminum frames that were both lighter and more flex-resistant than the steel models that dominated the industry at the time. They quickly followed up this success with a road racing model and a mountain bike model in 1984. Cannondale's creative reputation encouraged both bike dealers and customers to join the revolution, and widespread industry skepticism quickly gave way to a host of imitators. In 1997, Cannondale was the first company to feature large, oversized aluminum bike frames on cycling's biggest stage, the Tour de France. After powering his Cannondale to four stage victories at the 1999 Tour, the flamboyant Saeco team leader proclaimed "Cannondale is the best bike." With a reputation for shaking up the industry, Cannondale continued to push the entire cycling community with the release of their first carbon/aluminum frame, the Six13, flaunting the low weight with prison striped jerseys that read: Legalize My Cannondale. In the last 14 years, Cannondale have won five Giro d'Italia Maglia Rosas, arguing that maybe they should add pink to our brand colors. Most recently they won the Girod'Iltalia and the Vuelta a Espa ñ in one single year! On the mountain bike side, Cannondale started the dual suspension revolution way back in 1990 by introducing the Delta V E.S.T., the industry's first dual suspension bike, and followed it up with the equally radical Super V and Scalpel platforms. Our riders dominated the cross country and downhill scene into the new millennium with the biggest names in dirt like Cadel Evans, Alison Sydor, Missy Giove, Cedric Gracia, Christophe Sauser, Anne-Caroline Chausson, Tinker Juarez and Brian Lopes to name a few. The creation of The Cut freeride crew brought together the audacious riding talents of Aaron Chase, Chris Van Dine and Mick Hannah. Our technologies like HeadShok, Lefty, innovative suspension and optimized aluminum and carbon design directly translated into race victories and riding that continually pushed the limits of what's possible on a bike.  Widely regarded as the bike industry's leading innovator with game-changing technologies, Cannondale and its handcrafted bicycles continue to be recognized by organizations from both inside and outside the industry including: Many of the ideas that keep Cannondale products on the cutting edge come from the sponsored athletes on the company's professional racing teams. The feedback provided by the company's riders, combined with Cannondale's best-in-class production processes, fuel a near constant stream of both new innovations and improvements to existing products. With a laser focus on a rider-first mentality, we push our employees, our dealers and the bike industry. These refinements aren't limited to the company's competitive road racing and mountain bikes, however the insights gained through racing, coupled with Cannondale's quest for constant improvement, have also benefited the company's wide array of lightweight recreational bikes as well as its lines of state-of-the-art cycling apparel and parts & accessories. This is summed up in Cannondale's mantra to: never settle in our quest to create the perfect ride.
