Cannondale Synapse 105 Women's Road Bike

The Cannondale Synapse 105 for Women, is a road bike, which has the perfect combo of looks and brains due to its stylish finish and clever use of high quality components. Its rigid frame and well-planned geometry go hand in hand with its comfortable ride, which at this price point, makes it suitably appealing. Whilst alloy is used for the frame you can find several carbon components, including the fork and the rear stay, which allow for dampening of unhelpful vibrations if you are taking the bike out for a lengthier spin than normal.

Cannondale Synapse 105 Overview

It is relatively difficult to define affordability, as this is not only subjective but also based on a plethora of factors. The Cannondale Synapse 105 is certainly targeted at cycling enthusiasts but it is arguably an affordably priced machine that successfully apes the abilities of its superiors without reaching a stratospheric price point. For your money you get an alloy frame with Synapse SAVE carbon components to lighten the overall load and provide greater flexibility and strength where it is most needed. Cannondale uses Shimano 105 components on many models in this range and they are a welcome sight on the specs list in this case, but you also get brakes from Tektro and tyres from Schwalbe so you know that there are other high quality components onboard. The bike has been constructed to be sensitive to the specific requirements of female riders who want top of the line performance on the road.

The style of the Cannondale Synapse 105 manages to be attractive in its unfussiness. Whilst other bikes aimed at females can look a little extravagant or overly drab this treads the tightrope and balances classic looks with aesthetic touches and its magnesium white frame is offset with stripes of black and blue. Some riders might want something a touch more eye-catching, but the good looks of this bike are obvious enough.
