Synapse Carbon is a road bike that’s light, stiff, fast, and surprisingly comfortable. It's performance-focused, but with a slightly more upright geometry, perfect for long days in the saddle and confident handling on all road surfaces. Micro-Suspension in the rear triangle and fork keeps you comfortable and in control, while the frame's BallisTec Carbon construction and full carbon fork deliver exceptionally low weight for this category and result in a high-performance feel. With clearance for tires up to 32mm wide and subtle, hidden fender mounts for exploring the wilder side of endurance riding, the Synapse Disc is ready for adventure.
- BallisTec Carbon frame, internal cable routing, flat mount disc
- Full carbon thru-axle fork
- Fulcrum Racing 600 wheels
- Shimano Ultegra Di2 11-speed drivetrain
- Shimano Ultegra hydraulic flat-mount disc brakes
- Vittoria Zaffiro Pro 30c tires
Electronic drivetrain systems deliver excellent shifting, easy set up, and solid battery life. Here are the highlights of today’s electronic shifting systems:
Electronic shifting systems use powerful servomotors to rapidly shift the chain. Because microprocessors and sensors constantly monitor every aspect of the system, they shift with precisely 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.
