Key Features:

WOMEN'S S.E.R.G. GEOMETRY
Our Women's S.E.R.G (Synapse Endurance Race Geometry) is based on an even spread of stack and reach, ensuring consistent jumps betwen sizes, and features a taller head tube, slightly relaxed head angle and a longer wheelbase for the perfect balance of racy agility and stable comfort.

SAVE PLUS MICRO-SUSPENSION SYSTEM
The 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.

  • A. Rear Triangle and Fork: The frame and fork's carbon layup is designed to optimize high-frequency vibration dissipation, reducing road buzz. The radical helixed shapes of the chain stays and seat stays work in conjunction with the offset dropout fork to allow the wheels to track over imperfections in the road for better handling and control, seated or standing.
  • B. Seat Post and Seat Tube: The elegantly scalloped seat tube and the smaller diameter 25.4mm seatpost are designed to flex together to provide more comfort when seated. The integrated collarless seat clamp allows more of the seatpost to flex than with a traditional clamp.

POWER PYRAMID/BB30A
The seat tube splits asymmetrically to meet a new wider 73mm BB30A bottom bracket, for maximum stiffness with minimal weight.

LARGER TYRES
The larger volume 700x25c tyres found on all Women's Synapses provide more comfort and stability and are less likely to pinch flat. The frames can accept up to 28c tyres.

SYNAPSE BALLISTEC CARBON FRAME
Synapse Carbon- Same lay-up, same molds and same ballistic base fibres as the Hi-MOD version, but utilizing a higher percentage of intermediate modulus fibres to tune stiffness and ride feel.
