Our 2018 model Synapse 105 is a copy of the award winning Synapse Carbon model but made from an aluminium alloy which is both lightweight and very strong. The Synapse is a road bike designed for covering miles in real comfort, using brand new SAVE (Synapse Anti-Vibration Elimination) Technology to reduce vibration from the road and increase the comfort during long rides. The Synapse is designed for multi-purpose use and is heavier than the CAAD12 at a total bike weight if 9.6kg whereas the CAAD12 is just 8.1kg.
The Synapse has an extra spinning gear on the rear cassette as opposed to the CAAD12. This makes climbing that little bit easier.
The spec on the Synapse is precisely as mentioned below except for the tyres, which we change after each tour. The tyres we use will either be 25mm or 28mm and be Gatorskins or very similar.
The bike also comes fitted with 2 x water bottle holders (bottles not included), Small saddlebag with spare innertube, tyre levers, pump attached to the frame, speedometer and lights. We can also provide a map holder and helmet if required.
