This page is provided for reference to historical product information.

Comfortable and sporty, the Cannondale Synapse 7 bike features a Shimano Sora drivetrain and a relaxed yet responsive ride quality for all-around road versatility.

  • Carbon fork and shaped, slightly bent seatstays employ Synapse Active Vibration Elimination (S.A.V.E.) technology to effectively damp road vibration for enhanced comfort
  • Slightly extended head tube and long wheelbase give the Synapse series a comfortable riding position and a smooth ride, all without sacrificing performance
  • Shimano Sora shifters and derailleurs maneuver quickly and precisely through the 27 gears, letting you concentrate on the road ahead
  • Cannondale C4 long-reach brakes dish out plenty of power for unanticipated stops, and they make adding fenders (sold separately) a snap
  • Schwalbe Lugano tires surround 32-spoke wheels for consistent road grip and dependable performance
  • Eyelets accept a rear rack for greater utility (rack sold separately)
  • Pedals are not included
  • The Cannondale Synapse 7 bike specifications 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.
