Cannondale's Synapse Carbon 105 simply begs for high-mileage fun. Synapse Endurance Race Geometry appeals to Gran Fondo specialists, high-mileage devotees, and riders who love the thought of a long, winding road. BallisTec carbon transfers power smoothly and damps road vibration. Once you get a taste of Shimano's 22-speed 105 drivetrain transferring all your power to the road smoothly and easily, you'll be searching out hills to climb. Mavic's Aksium wheels are the perfect pairing for this endurance machine, with climb-boosting low weight, and sprint-enhancing acceleration. Matched with high-quality Schwalbe tires, you're primed to pin every corner on your favorite road loop. Plus, Shimano's 105 brakes have power to spare. Throw in a sleek, supportive Cannondale saddle and a batch of their own prime components and you've got a hard bike to beat. With fit and performance like this, don't be surprised if you find yourself taking the long road home on your next ride.
