The relaxed handling and comfortable body positioning of Cannondale's Synapse Carbon 5 105 C keeps you yearning for more miles on every ride. On any length ride, the lively feel of Cannondale's lightweight, vibration-damping carbon frame and fork is simply sublime. At your command are a host of quality components, including a crisp-shifting FSA/Shimano 105 20-speed drivetrain that features an easy-spinning crank so you can conquer any hill, and powerful Shimano dual-pivot brakes for confidence and control on the way back down. You'll love the quick-rolling Shimano wheels, comfortable Prologo saddle, and the quality bar, stem, and seatpost from Cannondale.

"The Cannondale Synapse Carbon 5 has won Cycling Plus magazine's prestigious Bike of the Year 2014 award for its supreme blend of class leading comfort and performance." Selected from 50 comparable bikes it also won their Endurance Bike of the Year 2014 Award and rated the best at descending hills! Simply said, this is a great bike and a blast to ride. I have owned some nice road bikes in the past but this is the pick of the litter by far. I have the 2015, identical to the 2014 but for a slight color change. They will have to pry it from my cold dead hands to get it away from me. I added Profile Design T1+ Viper Aerobars to the purchase, it's a match made in Heaven!
I'm loving this bike,averaging about 120km a week. It's amazing how solid this bike feels. Did a 100km charity ride a couple of weeks ago with no problems, me and the bike.
This is my first road bike and was looking for an entry level bike that could hold its own on century rides or in triathlons. This bike is probably beyond the level I needed but well worth the money. 12 months interest free financing made this bike a no-brainer. I could not be happier with how this bike rides and the comfort level. Absolutely no soreness after long rides. Very fast.
