MENS ROAD BIKE
TRUE ENDURANCE MACHINERY
Built for big rides and long days in the saddle, the Synapse offers full race
performance, all-day geometry, wide-ranging capabilities and a microsuspension
system that insulates you from the bumps without isolating you from
the experience. It’s a true endurance machine, for true endurance riders.
»» RACE-LEVEL PERFORMANCE
New frame weighs just 950g (over 220g lighter) with a level of stiffness normally
reserved for World Tour sprinters’ rigs. This thing is fast.
SAVE Micro-Suspension in the frame, fork and seatpost keeps you protected from
shocks and vibration yet connected to the feel of the ride.
»» ENDURANCE RACE GEOMETRY
The rider position perfectly balances low, forward efficiency and upright comfort, for
a “just-right” feel that encourages full-gas exploits and all-day sessions.
»» PROPORTIONAL RESPONSE DESIGN
Proportional Response Design ensures that every rider, regardless of size, enjoys the same ride feel and
handling. Each size gets its own custom carbon layup, tube dimensions and geometry. We even use
three different steerer diameters and fork rakes through the size run for a truly tailored feel.
»»WIDE RANGING CAPABILITIES
With full clearance for tires up to a whopping 32mm wide, and subtle, hidden fender mounts, the
Synapse is ready and willing to explore the wilder side of endurance riding.
