Cannondale Synapse Alu Claris - RRP: £599

This Shimano Claris 2x8-equipped Cannondale Synapse Alu is a proven  performance road bike made extra versatile courtesy of its engineered-in  comfort and its mudguard compatibility.

Cannondale Synapse Overview

The Synapse is a lightweight road bike that does not ignore your comfort  needs. Compared with a full-on Cannondale road race bike, the Synapse has a  2-2.5cm taller head tube, a longer wheelbase and a shallower head angle. The  Synapse's SAVE (Synapse Active Vibration Elimination) carbon forks are proven  shock absorbers as are its SAVE aluminium seat stays, which curve to meet the  rear dropouts to damp potential shock from ill-kept roads. For most riders,  these tweaks offer a more comfortable ride - especially if you are in the  saddle for hours, as you might be on a sportive or charity ride.

Given that a wet ass doesn't contribute to your comfort on the bike, you  might be interested to hear that the Cannondale Synapse's brake calipers are  8mm longer-reach than standard road bike brakes so they facilitate fitting  fenders (AKA mudguards).

Here's how Cannondale features the details that make their Synapse Alu road bikes exceptional.


By flattening and butting the chain stays and triaxially forming the  seat stays, we create a rear stay assembly that allows significant deflection  vertically to absorb road shock and vibration, while staying extremely rigid  laterally for power transfer and confident cornering.


Compared with our Elite race geometry, the Synapse geometry features a  taller head tube (2-2.5cm taller), gently sloping top tube, slightly relaxed  head angle and longer wheelbase. This combination provides a more upright  riding position and a lively, yet stable feel. The Synapse is confidence  inspiring and relaxing but avoids the sluggish feel and awkward handling of  many “comfort” road bikes


Cannondale’s legendary double-pass smooth welds join optimally shaped  taper-butted tubes for a great combination of svelte light weight, stiffness  and durability.


Carbon fork blades with integrated SAVE features provide additional  comfort and sharp handling.


Subtle, understated rack and fender mounts add versatility.'

Cannondale Synapse AluLove at First Ride

Quite possibly, the perfect first road bike. An upright position for  greater riding comfort combined with silky smooth SAVE PLUS technology gives  first-time road riders, commuters and fitness-lovers a versatile blend of  comfort, speed and value. Advanced alloy construction creates a lightweight,  responsive frame with the crisp handling you’d expect from a Cannondale.  Subtle, understated rack and fender mounts are ready to get to work or seek out  adventure.
