Enjoy the easy rolling efficiency of a road bike with a slightly more comfortable and upright riding position aboard Cannondale's Women's Synapse Carbon 6 105. The lively feel of Cannondale's lightweight, vibration-damping carbon frame and fork is great for beginners and seasoned road vets alike. No matter what your experience, a host of quality components are at your command, including a compact FSA/Shimano 105 20-speed drivetrain that features a huge gear range so you can conquer any hill, and powerful dual-pivot brakes for confidence and control on the descents. You'll also love the smooth Shimano wheels, and the women's specific saddle and handlebar from Cannondale.
When constructing their carbon fiber frames, Cannondale uses high strength, high impact resins similar to those used in carbon baseball bats. The fibers and resins are put in a lay-up designed to maximize the anisotropic (direction specific) qualities, making for a bike that is light and stiff, and capable of absorbing impact without damaging the structural integrity. Once the frame has passed quality testing, Cannondale adds stiffer, higher-modulus fibers in safe areas to increase stiffness and tune the ride.
|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!|
BB30 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.
