Cannondale's Synapse Carbon 105 simply begs for high-mileage fun. Synapse Endurance Race Geometry appeals to Gran Fondo specialists, high-mileage junkies, and riders who love the thought of a long, winding road.

Matched with high-quality Schwalbe tires, you're primed to pin every corner on your favorite road loop. Plus, Shimano's 105 brakes have power to spare. Throw in a sleek, supportive Prologo saddle and a batch of Cannondale's own prime components and you've got a hard bike to beat. With fit and performance like this, don't be surprised if you find yourself taking the long road home on your next ride.
