Cannondale's Synapse Carbon 3 Ultegra keeps you comfortable whether you're pushing through a century ride or attacking the local peloton! The lively feel of Cannondale's lightweight, vibration-damping carbon frame and fork will keep you fresh mile after mile and make all your rides even more fun. At your command are a host of quality components, including a crisp-shifting FSA/Shimano 22-speed drivetrain that features an extra-wide gear range so you can conquer any hill, and responsive Ultegra brakes for confidence and control on the descents. On top of all that, Mavic Aksium wheels and Aksion tires roll fast and smooth, and a Cannondale stem, seatpost and bar round out the package.

Cannondale's Synapse carbon frame pulls out all the stops to provide incredibly light weight and amazing comfort. Its oversize, shaped carbon tubes (left) are wrapped and molded to sleek joints for exceptionally efficient pedal power. The Synapse's hourglass seatstays (center) smooth the road and enhance power transfer with exceptional lateral stiffness. And, the flat carbon chainstays (right) flex for unmatched road-bike comfort.
Cannondale's SAVE PLUS fork and rear stays create a micro suspension system that allows the wheels to track the ground, improving comfort, control, traction and handling. Designed to help European pros carry speed over cobbled roads, this system allows the bike to roll faster, accelerate better and corner harder without affecting pedaling efficiency so your ride is more enjoyable!

BB30BB30 is an oversize bottom bracket standard that boosts stiffness and decreases weight. BB30 bottom bracket bearings are pressed directly into compatible frames, meaning there are no heavy external cups to thread in. And, BB30 cranksets feature 30mm-diameter spindles (standard spindles are smaller) for greater pedaling efficiency and increased power transfer.
