Whether you are riding those back lanes with a mossy ridge through the middle when its -3°C, heading across to the cobbles of the Arenburg trench in the early spring or a crits race when the weather improves then this bike covers it all.
Yes the Synapse is classically know for being a super endurance bike and really nothing changes here. Centred around the recently updated Synapse frame you will benefit from the BallisTec Carbon that is enginereed to allow targeted areas of flex that will help to iron out vibration and chatter from the road. Combine this with the ability to take a 32mm tyre and mount mudguards you can really can tackle any road come rain or shine.
Where the bike moves forward, is that the frame tips the scales at 950g, a saving of 200g on the previous version, and the new asymmetrical frame and fork design combined with the move away from quick release skewers to thru axle, gives a World Tour Sprint level of stiffness that should keep even Sep Vanmarcke happy ahead of the usual sprint finish at the end of Paris-Roubaix.
