The Cannondale Synapse Carbon 105 5 Disc features a Shimano 105 22 speed groupset and Shimano RS685 hydraulic disc brakes as upgrades over the Synapse Carbon Tiagra.
The awards say it all, Cannondale's Synapse Carbon sets the standard for endurance road bikes. Voted Bike of the year 2014 (Cycling Plus) and Bike of the Year 2015 (road.cc) the Synapse Carbon's amazing ride quality and lightweight makes it a brilliant all rounder, comfortable AND fast. At the heart of every Synapse Carbon is the SAVE Plus micro suspension system which uses different carbon layups in the rear triangle, seat tube, seat post and fork to each damp out vibrations of different amplitudes. Weight is kept low by using Cannondale's Ballistec carbon fibres and features such as the Power Pyramid seat tube which splits into two tubes above the bottom bracket to maximize stiffness whilst keeping weight low.
Synapse Carbon bikes have Endurance Race geometry. This is based on the race geometry of the Supersix EVO but uses a taller headtube, slacker head angle and longer wheelbase to give a slightly more relaxed ride whilst retaining a performance position.
The Cannondale Synapse Carbon 105 uses Shimano's legendary 105 groupset. The functionality of Shimano 105 is difficult to fault and it features several of the weight saving features from Ultegra which keeps performance levels high. The Cannondale Si 50/34 BB30 chainset is lightweight and takes advantage of Cannondale's BB30A bottom bracket system with the oversized axle saving weight and maximizing power transfer. The Si chainset mates with a 11-32 cassette giving a wide enough gear range for any situation.
Shimano's RS685 hydraulic disc brakes are some of the very best around. Neatly integrated into the shift levers and with compact calipers the RS685 brakes offer the usual Shimano light action at the lever for excellent stopping power at the wheel. Their modulation is excellent and the confidence they give, particularly in wet conditions is invaluable.
If you are looking for a great do it all road bike with an award winning ride quality which is setup to conquer any road in all conditions then the Cannondale Synapse Carbon 105 Disc is difficult to beat.
IMPORTANT: This bicycle is supplied without pedals.
