Enjoy the fast-rolling efficiency of a road bike with a back-friendly, upright riding position aboard Cannondale's Synapse Carbon 6 105. The lively feel of Cannondale's lightweight, vibration-damping carbon frame and fork is great for long rides, short rides, and everything in between. A host of quality components are at your command, including a reliable 20-speed FSA/Shimano 105 drivetrain that features a compact crank so you can conquer any hill, and powerful dual-pivot brakes for confidence and control on the descents. Plus, you're sure to love the smooth Shimano wheels, and the quality bar, stem, seatpost, and saddle from Cannondale.
|Cannondale's SAVE PLUS fork and rear stays create a micro suspension system that allows the wheels to track the ground, improving comfort, control, traction and handling. Designed to help European pros carry speed over cobbled roads, this system allows the bike to roll faster, accelerate better and corner harder without affecting pedaling efficiency so your ride is more enjoyable!|
BB30 is an oversize bottom bracket standard that boosts stiffness and decreases weight. BB30 bottom bracket bearings are pressed directly into compatible frames, meaning there are no heavy external cups to thread in. And, BB30 cranksets feature 30mm-diameter spindles (standard spindles are smaller) for greater pedaling efficiency and increased power transfer.
