Cannondale Synapse Carbon Disc Dura Ace 2018 51 – Slate
The perfect balance of race-day performance and all-day ridability.
TRUE ENDURANCE MACHINERY This is for the riders.
You know the ones the chargers the searchers the hammers with nothing to prove except to themselves.
The ones who live to go long and go hard and return home with nothing in the tank but the glow of a ride well ridden.
MEET THE NEW SAVE SYSTEMBAR.
THE FIRST OF ITS KIND.
Introducing our first-ever SAVE SystemBar ride-smoothing comfort and sleek integrated style without the hassles of a one-piece design.
The SystemBars elliptical SAVE bar-shape offers more smoothness than a standard bar protecting you from the bumps while keeping you connected to the road.
Multiple stem lengths and 8 degrees of pitch adjustment let you set your position just the way you like it and a detachable mount holds both a Garmin and a Fabric Lumaray light.
Its smooth integration without the frustration.
HIGH PERFORMANCE OR FULL ENDURANCE? YES.
For those who think that to get the all-day capabilities of an endurance machine you have to give up the go we say think again.
Lighter and stiffer than ever with asymmetric and size-optimised frame design and a rider position that encourages excess the all-new Synapse is built to go hard longer.
SIZE-OPTIMISED DESIGN Size-specific diameters on the frame head tube and fork steerer along with three different fork offsets ensure that each frame size matches the weight and power of the rider for whom its made.
It's the kind of Nth degree obsessiveness that elevates the truly great above the merely good.

Innovations & Technology: 950g Frame When it's just not for the sake of saving grams – in other words when it's combined with racey snap and sublime feel – there's just no substitute for light weight.
950 grams for a frame like this? Believe it.
Race Level Stiffness An asymmetrically designed frame and fork balance pedalling and disc loads to deliver World Tour sprinter level stiffness.
Get ready to lay down power and rail corners like you wouldn't believe.
Save SystemBar SAVE SystemBar – ride – smoothing comfort and sleek integrated style without the hassles of a one-piece design.
Save Post The 25.4mm SAVE post and integrated seat binder work with the rest of the SAVE system to enhance comfort and reduce fatigue.
Save Micro-Suspension Engineered to tune the harshness out of choppy road surfaces and tune you in to what's happening at your tyres' contact patches so that you can concentrate on the important stuff – like nailing the right line or beating the sun home.
Endurance Race Geometry Endurance Race Geometry strikes the perfect performance balance between full race aggression and the relaxed upright comfort of other “endurance” rigs.
Mudguard Up Hidden mounts and a removable seat stay bridge ensure that the Synapse is fully mudguard-ready for long days with no spray.
Room for 32 Embrace the backroads the rough roads the highways and the byways.
With room in the front and rear for tyres as big as 32mm measured/actual and SAVE Micro-Suspension Synapse is ready for any road anywhere.
Thru Axles Thru-axles front and rear might seem like cost-of-entry these days but often they're overkill.
But ride this bike like it's intended to be ridden and overkill they ain't.
Power Pyramid The seat tube splits asymmetrically to meet with the wide 73mm BB30A for maximum stiffness with minimal weight.
