This Cannondale Synapse Carbon Ultegra Disc 2017 Black is available with our legendary Podium Point free accessory scheme.
Winner of road.cc's Bike of the Year award in 2015 the Cannondale Synapse Ultegra Disc features a Shimano Ultegra 22 speed groupset, Mavic Aksium wheels, a Cannondale Hollowgram Si chainset and Cannondale C2 components as upgrades over the Synapse Carbon Disc 105.
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 Ultegra uses Shimano's venerable Ultegra groupset. Shimano's Ultegra groupset offers pro level performance at a sensible price point. Accurate, reliable and precise it does everything you want from a groupset whilst keeping the grams to a minimum. The Cannondale Hollowgram Si 50/34 BB30 chainset is super lightweight benefitting from hollow crank arms and the super stiff and light oversized BB axle. The Hollowgram 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.
Mavic excellent Aksium disc Wheelset is used on the Synapse Carbon Ultegra disc giving a lightweight, dependable and stylish setup.
If you are looking for a near perfect do it all road bike which will excel on all roads in all conditions then the Cannondale Synapse Ultegra Disc is it.
IMPORTANT: This bicycle is supplied without pedals. Pedals for this bicycle can be selected for no cost using Podium Points™.
