2014 Cannondale Synapse Carbon Hi-MOD BLACK INC.
It's Time To Rethink Endurance.
Crush meets plush in the redesigned 2014 Synapse. The new Synapse is the ultimate partner for the epic ride. With it's next-level carbon construction and radically engineered tube shapes it proves that "endurance" is no longer code for boring.Thunder over gravel roads and rail through rutted turns. With SAVE PLUS and S.E.R.G., an uncompromising connection to the road keeps you confident and in control throughout your ride. But when the road goes up, the Synapse goes right up with it. Its feathery light BallisTec™ frame and POWER Pyramid give the Synapse the stiffness where it counts to get you over the top.
FOR BULLETPROOF PERFORMANCE
BallisTec™ carbon construction combines super strong military armoring fibers with a network of ultra stiff carbon for frame that is lighter and stiffer than ever before. It's the game changing tactical advantage in the battle for the perfectly balance
YOUR BASE OF POWER
The Power Pyrimad The seat tube splits asymmetrically at the bottom to accommodate a new, wider bottom bracket for serious stiffness without the added weight. The Power Pyramid is a solid base for laying down the power and laying out the competition.
SAVE PLUS The dynamic shape and flattened profiles of the fork, rear stays, seat tube and seatpost all work in harmony, providing the flex to give and the snap to go.
A LITTLE FLEX GOES A LONG WAY
SAVE PLUS technology gets new emphasis in the seat tube. The elegantly scalloped shape, combined with a narrow 25.4mm diameter seatpost, provides more sympathy in the saddle—even over the most remorseless road. S.E.R.G FORWARD

To give you that perfect steering input and delivers equal parts stability and agility.
