  • Features

    • Constructed of lightweight T6061 aluminum, Synapse frame geometry is designed to promote stable handling and enhance comfort

    • Tektro R538 dual-pivot caliper brakes provide quick deceleration
    • Shimano wheels are outfitted with puncture-resistant Maxxis Fuse tires for more ride time and less down time
    • Cockpit is outfitted with Cannondale goodies, including a carbon-wrapped seatpost that's topped with a cushy San Marco Ponza Power saddle
