CANNONDALE SYNAPSE HIMOD FORCE ETAP AXS DISC ROAD BIKE 2021
The Cannondale Synapse HiMOD Force eTap AXS Disc Road Bike fuses a sophisticated carbon construction with several comfort and speed inspired attributes. The result is a versatile performance that is most suited to enduring, mountain gran fondos but is still more than energetic enough for the most furious of races.
Cannondale’s highest grade of carbon fibre is utilised in the frameset, and this is laid in a stringent format to infuse generous amounts of efficiency and power transfer while remaining light. This refined carbon layup is moulded into SAVE micro-suspension technology defined tube sections to result in serene levels of comfort and extra control, even across the roughest of road surfaces.
The frameset geometry has a bias towards endurance but still lends itself adequately to the high intensities of climbing and sprinting. Comfort and enhanced handling are exaggerated further by the SAVE tuned carbon handlebar and seatpost as well as the generous tyre clearance that permits the use of up to 32mm wide rubber.
A feeling of speed is naturally promoted into the ride by the HollowGram 45 KNOT wheelset. This wheelset possesses an aerodynamically tuned, 45mm deep carbon rim that is also light and stiff to supply responsiveness and control whatever the riding situation. Gear changing is charged to the wireless, electronic SRAM Force configuration that adeptly flicks through its vast range of ratios while braking is taken care of by ultra-reliable hydraulic disc brakes.
Discreet mounts on the frameset and a supplied seatstay bridge complete this bikes hardy nature by facilitating seamless mudguard installment for protection in inclement riding conditions.
