Cannondale Synapse Carbon 3 - Innovative touring racer with outstanding comfort

Hardly any manufacturer implements the topic of comfort as consistently as the US forge Cannondale. It has been recognized that even the smallest vibrations, which permanently affect the body, accelerate the fatigue of the driver. Conversely, this means that the more comfortable a race bike rides, the more comfortable the rider feels on long distances. The comfort concept can be implemented particularly effectively with the help of carbon. The frame of the Synapse, developed according to the most modern aspects, is based on the Topstone Gravel series: Cleverly placed flex zones on the rear triangle, seat tube and seat post absorb vibrations without sacrificing lateral stiffness. Since no additional suspension elements are used in the Synapse frame, its weight remains pleasantly light. Another important, but often underestimated factor, are the tires. Therefore, Cannondale leaves room on the Synapse for tire diameters up to 35 millimeters. Because: the more voluminous the tires, the better their damping. Another innovation is the new Smart Sense system, with which the Synapse Carbon 3 is equipped ex works. This intelligent light and sensor technology consists of front and rear lights. SmartSense is controlled via the Cannondale app.

Race performance combined with versatility

With its discreetly shaped aero tubes, the redesigned carbon frame lays claim to speeds that can sometimes be beyond relaxed. Equally discreet are the attachment points for accessories such as mudguards and racks, which make the Synapse a veritable all-rounder. Typical Cannondale: the Proportional-Response design ensures that the geometry fits perfectly to the rider size at any frame size. In the Carbon 3 version, the Synapse comes with the indestructible Shimano 105 component group. 2 x 12 gears and a smooth performance make it the carefree group number one in the program of the market leader. The low-maintenance hydraulic disc brakes also contribute to this. Other components such as handlebars, stem and seatpost Cannondale already develops for years in their own laboratories.
