Cannondale Synapse 2300 Triple 2013 Road Bike. Elite-race performance meets all-day comfort. The directional carbon lay-up and exaggerated vibration-absorbing tube shapes of the SAVE PLUS chain stay/seat stay system offer incredible comfort, while actually improving the frame's lateral and torsional stiffness. Offset dropouts allow the fork blades to have the vertical compliance of a shallow rake fork, while maintaining Synapse's nimble, precise handling. Refined carbon lay-up and SAVE shaping further enhance the fork's vertical compliance. Tuned to work with the SAVE PLUS rear triangle. Compared with our Elite race geometry, the Synapse features a 2-2.5 cm taller head tube, a slightly relaxed head angle and a longer wheelbase for a more upright riding position and a stable yet lively feel. It's confidence-inspiring and relaxing without the sluggish feel and awkward handling of many ''comfort'' road bikes.
The Synapse Sora 7 Triple 2013 Road Bike features the Synapse Alloy, 6061 Alloy, SAVE PLUS frame and SAVE fork with carbon blades, as well as an FSA Vero triple chainset and SRAM PG-950, 12-26, 9-speed cassette and Maddux RS 3.0 rims finished off with Schwalbe Lugano 700x25c tyres.
