The Cannondale Synapse Disc RED eTap is the ultimate machine for full-gas, full-day exploits. It's performance-focused, but with a slightly more upright position for comfort—perfect for long days in the saddle and confident handling on all road surfaces. The BallisTec carbon frame weighs in at a mere 950 grams, with a racy snap and sublime feel. An asymmetrical fork balances disc loads to deliver World Tour sprinter-level stiffness. Cannondale's SAVE frame technology tunes out harsh choppy road surfaces and tunes you in to what's happening at your tires, so you can concentrate on nailing the right line or beating the sun home. And with room for tires as big as 32mm, you can embrace the back roads, rough roads, highways and byways.
Fulcrum Racing 500 wheels are asymmetrically built to give you a balanced, stiff, and incredibly responsive ride. They're paired with race-ready Vittoria Rubino Pro tires for a smooth ride and loads of traction across rough surfaces and at high speeds. SRAM's clean, flawlessly shifting wireless RED eTap drivetrain is paired with a Quarq Prime Power Ready crank. SRAM RED hydraulic disc brakes offer ruthless power and smooth modulation, so you can push your limits a little bit further.
Electronic drivetrain systems deliver excellent shifting, easy set up, and solid battery life. Here are some benefits of electronic shifting that you don't want to miss.
Electronic shifting systems use powerful servo motors to rapidly shift the chain. Because microprocessors and sensors constantly monitor every aspect of the system, they shift with surgical precision and without chain rub.
Many major systems have customizable shifting. Some have the ability to add remote shifters for common riding positions, and some even allow you to change the functions of the shifting buttons.
Electronic groupsets are responsive and consistent. There are no cables to stretch and wear out, so you get a flawless shift every time. The added bonus is you'll never have to replace a derailleur cable ever again.
