Paved, gravel, chip seal—it doesn't matter, it all just adds to the adventure. No matter what impulse drives you, the Synapse's perfect blend of race-day prowess, spot-on handling and all-day comfort says "get after it". The BallisTec carbon frame features Cannondale's endurance race geometry for a perfect balance between pure race position and upright comfort. The shaped blades and offset dropouts of the tapered SAVE Plus fork allow the front wheel to track smoothly over rough surfaces for amazing comfort and control. A luxurious Shimano Ultegra Di2 drivetrain is silent and precise, while Shimano hydraulic disc brakes provide superb stopping power and modulation. The Cannondale handlebar, stem, and seatpost are both lightweight and durable, and the Fabric Scoop saddle provides svelte support.
Electronic drivetrain systems deliver excellent shifting, easy set up, and solid battery life. Here are some benefits of electronic shifting that you don't want to miss.
Electronic shifting systems use powerful servo motors to rapidly shift the chain. Because microprocessors and sensors constantly monitor every aspect of the system, they shift with surgical precision and without chain rub.
Many major systems have customizable shifting. Some have the ability to add remote shifters for common riding positions, and some even allow you to change the functions of the shifting buttons.
Electronic groupsets are responsive and consistent. There are no cables to stretch and wear out, so you get a flawless shift every time. The added bonus is you'll never have to replace a derailleur cable ever again.
