Product Information

Cannondale Synapse Carbon Disc Ultegra SE 2018 (Special Edition)

The original Synapse was designed to be fast like your favourite race bike but offer plenty of ride locations with its versatile build and features. This, however, is no original Synapse. The BallisTec carbon frame weighs in at just 950g and features a flat-mount brake design as well as plenty of room for your winter mudguards and up to a 32c tyre so you can ride on the road less travelled. Spec'd with Shimano Ultegra R8000 components you can ensure shifting will be lightweight, smooth and reliable. Thanks to Cannondale's cable-port system you can also be assured that cables are kept dialled, clean and tidy. 12mm thru-axles front and rear make sure your ride is kept stiff and Shimano Ultegra R8070 hydraulic disc brakes are as crisp as they are reliable. All in all the SE 2018 disc Synapse offers the perfect bike for those wanting to tear up their local Strava segments to those looking to get to work on time. 

Full Specification



The Frame

The frame is designed with BallisTec carbon which keeps things light as well as featuring Cannondale’s SAVE PLUS technology which incorporates a slight flex in the stays and seat tube to add comfort to the rider. The Endurance Race Geometry positions the rider in the perfect spot to attack during a race, yet relax for longer distances.

Ready for anything

The Fender Up feature is a removeable seat stay bridge that allows for full mudguards to be mounted to the frame. Internal cable routing keeps the appearance neat, and a 12mm thru-axle maintain optimum stiffness in the rear. Every Synapse frame is Di2 ready, allowing for easy battery storage and routing. The frame will take up to 32c tyres.

Forks and brakes

The Synapse Disc fork features Cannondale's Asymmetric technology and is made with BallisTec Carbon. It uses SAVE PLUS technology to flex slightly for comfort and bump control, pairing up perfectly to the frame for an all-round supple ride. It also has a 12mm thru-axle to match the frame. Completing the SAVE PLUS package is the SAVE carbon seatpost.

Shimano Ultegra

Shimano’s Ultegra 2x11 drivetrain will continually deliver fast and accurate shifts day in and day out. The Ultegra hydraulic disc brakes are powerful stoppers, delivering consistent braking power and a high level of modulation. 

30c Gumwall Tyres

WTB offer their KOM 21 rims, matched to Formula hubs for fast rolling and robust performance. The WTB Exposure tyres come in 30c size and allow for rougher roads to be ridden without worry, gives that little bit of extra protection and comfort.
