  • Women-specific carbon frame features optimized tube shaping to promote efficiency and comfort; frame geometry gives a more upright position than more race-oriented road frames
  • The rear part of the frame and the all-carbon fork feature the Cannondale Synapse Active Vibration Elimination (S.A.V.E.) technology for damping road vibration
  • Large diameter BB30 bottom bracket design improves stiffness and increases power efficiency through the drivetrain
  • Compact FSA Omega BB30 crankset is paired with a wide-ranging 12-32 cassette for the gearing versatility of a triple crankset without the weight or finicky shifting
  • Shimano Tiagra shifters and derailleurs ensure responsive, easy shifting throughout the 20 capable gear combinations
  • Shimano wheels are wrapped with Schwalbe Lugano tires to deliver a good balance between sturdiness, quick acceleration and fast-rolling performance
  • Please note: pedals are sold separately
  • Specs on the Synapse Carbon 6 Compact women's road bike are subject to change


All bicycles sold at REI include a free warranty tune-up. New bikes go through a normal break-in period, after which readjustment is important for longevity and performance. Bring your new bike in to your local REI for its free tune-up within 20 hours of use or 6 months from purchase, whichever comes first. Contact your nearest REI bike shop to schedule this important service.
