The new Synapse Carbon is a masterpiece of modern bike design. It builds on an already exceptionally successful design by retaining all of the incredible ride characteristics and stable endurance geometry of its predecessor. You can ride the Synapse as far as your legs will take you and every mile along the way will be fast and comfortable. The dropped seat stay frame is engineered to flex in ways that improve vibration damping but do not affect power transfer. Carbon fibre naturally absorbs road vibrations and it is used throughout the frame and fork. During construction, the fibres are laid up for stiffness where it aids power transfer and flexibility where it aids comfort, so you get a responsive and dynamic ride with none of the harshness. Being a bike for riding on all kinds of roads, it comes stock with 30mm tyres that smooth out rough tarmac. There's clearance for 35mm tyres if you want an even smoother ride or for full-length mudguards if you want to ride in all weathers.
The Synapse has always been a machine built for big rides and it's steadily improved with each iteration. However, with this update, there's a step-change in the form of some exciting new tech integrated into the frame. Cannondale's new SmartSense System powers cleanly mounted lights, a rearview radar and a display, all from one central battery for incredible charging convenience and long burn times. The radar not only enhances your situational awareness but it also causes the rear light to flare when vehicles get close. The precisely which SmartSense comes with the bike varies from model to model but all Synapse Carbons are fully SmartSense compatible.
The Synapse Carbon 1 RLE is the pinnacle of the range so it comes kitted out with SmartSense lights and radar. It's also specced with Shimano's premiere racing groupset, Dura-Ace Di2. This semi-wireless electronic groupset spares no expense in shedding every gram possible. It delivers the fastest shifting on the market thanks to Hyperglide+, which enables smooth shifting under load both up and down the cassette. The weight saving doesn't stop there though. Cannondale's own HollowGram 45 SL KNOT wheels are astonishingly light and aero simultaneously. Ideally suited to varied rides with flat sections interspersed with big hill climbs and descents. As has become the norm with modern road bikes, the brakes are hydraulic disc type for consistent performance and excellent stopping power and modulation in all conditions.
If you want the fastest, most integrated endurance road bike that money can buy, then you want the Cannondale Synapse 1 RLE.
