CRUSH MEETS PLUSH

The perfect balance of race-day performance and all-day ridability.

RIDER PROFILE:

People who live for the love of the ride. Fit, serious, highperformance riders who set their sights beyond the tightly defined world of the pure racer; Gran Fondo specialists, all-day-epic riders, and those who long to venture off the smooth and easy.
  • S.E.R.G. SYNAPSE ENDURANCE RACE GEOMETRY
    With its slightly taller head tube, slightly longer wheelbase and slightly slacker head angle, S.E.R.G. strikes the ideal balance between pure race positioning and upright comfort. Perfect for long days in the saddle and confident handling on all road surfaces.
  • SAVE PLUS MICRO-SUSPENSION SYSTEM
    The SAVE PLUS Micro-suspension system is a three part system, comprised of the carbon lay-up, the rear triangle and fork, and the seat post and seat tube, all designed to collaborate seamlessly to reduce vibration, improve handling, and increase comfort.
  • SAVE PLUS MICRO-SUSPENSION SYSTEM (SEAT POST AND SEAT TUBE)
    The elegantly scalloped seat tube and the smaller diameter 25.4mm seatpost are designed to flex together to provide more comfort when seated. The integrated collarless seat clamp allows more of the seatpost to flex than with a traditional clamp.
  • SAVE PLUS MICRO-SUSPENSION SYSTEM (REAR TRIANGLE AND FORK)
    The frame and fork’s carbon layup is designed to optimize high-frequency vibration dissipation, reducing road buzz. The radical helixed shapes of the chain stays and seat stays work in conjunction with the offset dropout fork to allow the wheels to track over imperfections in the road for better handling and control, seated or standing.
  • POWER PYRAMID/BB30A
    The seat tube splits asymmetrically to meet a new wider 7 3mm BB30A bottom bracket, for maximum stiffness with minimal weight.
  • DISC BRAKES
    The disc frames and forks feature a completely revised carbon layup designed to handle the different loads of disc brakes while still delivering the incredible compliance the Synapse is known for. The unique ReachAround rear mount makes brake adjustment easy and allows the use of both SRAM and Shimano standards.
