For those folk who are looking to start out in road cycling, the Synapse Alloy is the ideal entry point into the Cannondale range. Equipped with a lightweight alloy frame, a comfortable riding position and high quality components, the Synapse Alloy offers a smooth and confidence-inspiring ride that’ll leave you wanting to get out on your bike at every possible chance you have. More competitive types may want to consider looking at the lighter CAAD12 model for a bike that’s more finely tuned for the racetrack. But if you’re less fussed by racing, and you’re more interested in joining your buddies on a weekend group ride, then the Synapse Alloy is the ideal starting point for getting into the world of road cycling.
Being a women’s specific model, the Synapse Alloy Women’s is equipped with a unique frame that is different to the men’s model. And different how? Compared to the regular version, the women’s Synapse features a shorter reach to the handlebar, and it’s also marginally taller in the head tube to help bring the handlebars closer to you. That avoids you from having to reach all the way out in front of you, so you can pedal along in a more upright riding position that puts less strain upon your neck, shoulders and back. In addition to this tailored riding position, Cannondale has also appointed the Synapse Alloy Women’s bike with narrower handlebars to suit slender female shoulders, and it also has a comfy female specific saddle too. Also worth noting is that the Synapse Alloy Women’s bike is available down to a 44cm size that will suit shorter riders, so you won’t have to compromise just to get the bike to fit you properly.
Choose from a Shimano Sora-equipped Synapse Alloy Women’s model, or a Shimano 105-equipped version that comes with a slick 11-speed shifting system and lighter wheels.
