The Synapse is the perfect balance of raw power and all-day ridability. Its race-proven combination of endurance geometry, light weight and dialed vertical compliance has won it everything from Spring Classics to Bike of the Year accolades. It might just be the best all-around road bike we've ever made.
RIDER PROFILE: People who live for the love of the ride. Fit, serious, highperformance riders who set their sights beyond the tightly defined world of the pure racer; Gran Fondo specialists, all-day-epic riders, and those who long to venture off the smooth and easy.
S.E.R.G. SYNAPSE ENDURANCE RACE GEOMETRYWith its slightly taller head tube, slightly longer wheelbase and slightly slacker head angle, S.E.R.G. strikes the ideal balance between pure race positioning and upright comfort. Perfect for long days in the saddle and confident handling on all road surfaces.
SAVE PLUS MICRO-SUSPENSION SYSTEMThe SAVE PLUS Micro-suspension system is a three part system, comprised of the carbon lay-up, the rear triangle and fork, and the seat post and seat tube, all designed to collaborate seamlessly to reduce vibration, improve handling, and increase comfort.
POWER PYRAMID/BB30AThe seat tube splits asymmetrically to meet a new wider 7 3mm BB30A bottom bracket, for maximum stiffness with minimal weight.
SYNAPSE BALLISTEC CARBON FRAME OPTIONS
700 X 28C TYRESThe larger tyres (up to 28c) found on the Synapse models provide more comfort, are better suited for differing road conditions, and are less likely to pinch flat.
DISC BRAKESThe disc frames and forks feature a completely revised carbon layup designed to handle the different loads of disc brakes while still delivering the incredible compliance the Synapse is known for. The unique ReachAround rear mount makes brake adjustment easy and allows the use of both SRAM and Shimano standards.
