Cannondale's Synapse Carbon 105 is a true endurance machine. The slightly slacker head angels, slightly longer wheelbase, and slightly taller head tube stack height than Cannondale's racier bikes offer increased comfort and stability on all road surfaces, while maintianing a racy feel. The seat tube splits asymmetrically to meet the wide bottom brackst for a maximum stiffness and minimal weight. The flattened and helixed-shaped rear stays flex to absorb shock and keep the wheel tracking smoothly over bumps, while the 25.4mm seat post and seat tube deflect slightly for increased comfort. Shaped fork blades and offset dropouts allow the front wheel to track smoothly over rough surfaces for amazing comfort and control.
With Shimano's always-reliable 105 component group, you'll instantly slip into the gear you need with the range to scale any climb. Tektro brakes deliver controlled braking on the way down for the utmost in descending confidence. Cannondale's C3 aluminum components outfit this trustworthy machine, while Cannondale’s Stage Ergo saddle provides comfort and support all day long.
