Product details

The Cannondale Synapse Carbon LTD RLE is a highly versatile road bike that could be used not only for a rolling Century ride, but also for conquering any terrain encountered after the road ends. Thanks to its ability to take up to 35mm wide tires, the Synapse Carbon LTD RLE will (once equipped with wider tires) thrive on any gravel trail. With electronic shifting and carbon wheels listed among its other features, the Cannondale Synapse Carbon LTD RLE Road Bike is a premier endurance bike with vast riding abilities.

Key Features:

  • Shimano GRX Gearing – Shimano gravel/touring-oriented GRX 815 Di2 electronic 11-speed gearing offers the rider seamless shifting capabilities regardless of the road surface.
  • Carbon Frame and Wheels – The weight on this versatile bike is kept low with a full carbon frame and fork that offers internal cable routing and hidden rack/fender mounts. This isn't the only carbon detail on this bike as Cannondale pairs the lightweight frame with their HollowGram carbon tubeless-ready wheels.
  • SmartSense System – Each Cannondale Synapse Carbon LTD RLE comes equipped with its own SmartSense lighting system which turns on the second the ride starts. The system also reacts to changing light conditions, and even responds to the oncoming lights of approaching riders.
