Explore new roads aboard the Cannondale Synapse Women's 7 road bike, which features a women-specific design geared at boosting comfort and performance for your first triathlon or charity ride.

  • Women-specific Synapse 6061 aluminum frame is built for enhanced handling, stability and steering precision, offering excellent all-around road ride quality
  • Synapse Women's 7 bike caters to female riders with narrow bars and brake levers; shifters feature reach-adjustment shims to accommodate small hands
  • Seatstays and carbon fork feature the Cannondale Synapse Active Vibration Elimination (S.A.V.E.) technology for damping road vibration
  • 9-speed drivetrain features FSA Vero triple crankset and Shimano Sora components for dependable shifts throughout the 27 gears
  • Cannondale C4 brakes dish out plenty of power for unanticipated stops, and they make adding fenders (sold separately) a snap
  • Schwalbe Lugano tires surround 28-spoke wheels for consistent road grip and dependable performance
  • Cannondale components outfit the cockpit, including a women's Raven saddle for optimal support and comfort
  • Eyelets accept a rear rack for greater utility (rack sold separately)
  • Specs on the Cannondale Synapse Women's 7 bike are subject to change

After its initial break-in period you might notice your bicycle performing less responsively than the day you brought it home. Not to worry, this is typical of all new bicycles and simply reflects that cables have stretched or their housings have seated themselves into final position. To keep running at peak performance, all REI bicycles come with a FREE warranty tune-up, which should be accomplished between the first 100-200 miles of riding or after the first two months if you're accumulating miles less quickly. Contact your nearest REI bike shop for details and an appointment for this important service.

Cannondale Synapse Women's 7 Bike - 2012is rated4.3333out of5by3.
Rated4out of5byfromGreat BikeI use this bike for fun rides on the weekend, but mostly for commuting to work on a paved bike path. I really like how it handles and its comfort. I am new to bike commuting, but this bike has been great. The only thing I don't like is that I don't seem to be able to attach panniers (at least easily for my beginner skills). I just wear a backpack with my things for work.

Rated4out of5byfromGreat bike, rough gear-changesLove the bike, but even after initial test drive, bike was tuned for smoother gear changing, yet continue to have worsening problems with gears, sticking, noisy, and unresponsive (or slow to respond). Otherwise, it is a very smooth, fast ride; lightweight and dynamic.

Rated5out of5byfromIncredible bikeThis is my first road bike. I've had two mountain bikes and one hybrid and love this bike the most out of all my bikes. I have been riding these other bikes for years but wanted something light weight and faster and this fit the bill. I love that it's a beginner road bike so it's giving me the experience I need without fully committing to the sport. I highly recommend it.
