Not merely an aluminum copy of the Carbon Synapses, the Synapse Alloy series features rack mounts, fender clearance and long-reach brakes that expand its versatility without sacrificing its sporty soul.
Like the carbon model, the Synapse Aluminum frame is built using Cannondale's SAVE Plus technology -- careful shaping creates a rear stay assembly that is able to deflect vertically, absorbing tremendous amounts of road shock and vibration while staying extremely rigid laterally for power transfer and confident cornering.
The fork features a full carbon construction and also uses the SAVE Plus design to create a micro-suspension system that is elegantly simple and doesn’t require the additional weight of bumpers or inserts.
A taller head tube (2-2.5cm more than SuperSix), a longer wheelbase and relaxed angles produce a more upright riding position and a confidence-inspiring ride which avoids the sluggish feel of many "comfort" road bikes.
The Synapse Alloy 6 model is equipped with Shimano Tiagra 10-speed and other components carefully selected for affordability and reliability.
