Cannondale's Synapse Carbon Hi-MOD Black Inc. is stealthy, comfortable, and oh so fast! The endurance geometry of Cannondale's lightweight, vibration-damping Hi-MOD carbon frame and fork will keep you fresh mile after mile. All those miles will go by in a blur as the legendarily light action Shimano Dura-Ace 22-speed parts deliver a wide, hill-topping gear range, powered by a incredibly light, stiff Cannondale SI SL2 crankset. Responsive Dura-Ace brakes slow with confidence, while Vision Metron 40 carbon clincher wheels and Schwalbe Ultremo ZX tires jump when you sprint, hold speed on the flats and slice the corners with precision. Details like a Fizik saddle keep you comfy on all day epics, and an FSA bar, stem, and seatpost complete the comfy and fast package.

Cannondale's Synapse carbon frame pulls out all the stops to provide incredibly light weight and amazing comfort. Its oversize, shaped carbon tubes (left) are wrapped and molded to sleek joints for exceptionally efficient pedal power. The Synapse's hourglass seatstays (center) smooth the road and enhance power transfer with exceptional lateral stiffness. And, the flat carbon chainstays (right) flex for unmatched road-bike comfort.
Cannondale's SAVE PLUS fork and rear stays create a micro suspension system that allows the wheels to track the ground, improving comfort, control, traction and handling. Designed to help European pros carry speed over cobbled roads, this system allows the bike to roll faster, accelerate better and corner harder without affecting pedaling efficiency so your ride is more enjoyable!

BB30BB30 is an oversize bottom bracket standard that boosts stiffness and decreases weight. BB30 bottom bracket bearings are pressed directly into compatible frames, meaning there are no heavy external cups to thread in. And, BB30 cranksets feature 30mm-diameter spindles (standard spindles are smaller) for greater pedaling efficiency and increased power transfer.
