Plenty of bike riders yearn for one road bike. This road bike would be capable of all-day riding, with the ability to spice up a ride with some gravel or dirt. It would be as light as possible while maintaining a sense of solidity. For most people, this ideal bicycle is the new 2020 Cannondale Synapse Carbon Disc 105.
One of the highlight features of the new Cannondale Synapse are its disc brakes. Disc brakes make it so that the bike can hold a 700 x 32c tire with room to spare, as well as allowing enough clearance for a full-length fender. These voluminous tires are accentuated by Synapse Active Vibration Elimination (SAVE) micro suspension system; engineered flex zones are placed through the frame and fork to dampen road vibration and increase overall rider comfort. Parts like a bowed seat tube, a 25.4mm seatpost with integrated seat clamp (claimed 36% better vibration deflection), and a new fork further reduce fatigue over a long ride while keeping the frame stiff where it needs to be.
Disc brakes are important on a bike such as the Synapse, especially when riders are able to carry as much speed as they can with this bike. Size specific tubing profiles, head tubes, and steer tube diameters maintain the same level of compliance and ride quality across the whole size range. This makes it feel confident and planted over chip seal and choppy roads, thus allowing riders to carry greater speed without the bike feeling squirrely. WTB STP i19 rims and a wide WTB 30mm tire further allow riders to carry speed without worry of terrain, while the Shimano 105 hydraulic drivetrain is reliable, smooth, and versatile.
The 2020 Cannondale Synapse Carbon Disc 105 is an exciting bike, if only for its promise of being successful at different kinds of road riding. It is an endurance road bike at its core, but the wider rims and tires tires make this ready to conquer the unbeaten path should the need arise. This model features a Shimano 105 drivetrain with an 11-34t cassette. It is available in six sizes (48-61 cm).
