Cannodale's Synapse Tiagra is a two-wheeled Jack-of-all-trades. The lightweight carbon frame and fork employ Save Plus shaping to ensure a compliant ride that soaks up road buzz, while the endurance-oriented fit offer hours of comfort, and the slightly elongated wheel-base provides stability on descents. The 20-speed Shimano Tiagra drivetrain and FSA crankset combine everyday durability with easy, reliable shifting. Maddux wheels are matched to Schwalbe Lugano tires for smooth-rolling acceleration and excellent cornering ability. Tektro road brakes are great for all-weather performance and stopping power. Throw in a sleek, supportive Cannondale saddle, Cannondale's light aluminum components, as well as rack and fender mounts, and the Synapse is ready for any adventure.
