About the Cannondale Synapse Neo SE
Tackle the legendary passes of the Tour. Roll through the valleys of wine country. Crank out fast blasts after work or spend the whole weekend riding somewhere you've never been. On the all-new Synapse NEO, the road is now open to all. With its smooth, silent power, comfortably sportive position, and massive range, this electric-assist road bike is built to turn "I wish I could" into "I just did". Bosch's Generation 3 Active Line Plus drive unit delivers big power and does it so smoothly that you barely notice it - except for how it makes you feel limitless. It's a mid motor design that's ideal for road bikes thanks to its lightweight, smooth and silent power delivery, and drag free pedaling beyond the cut out threshold.
For handling that manages to be both confidence-inspiring and exhilarating, the Synapse NEO uses Cannondale's OutFront Steering Geometry. Pairing a relatively slack head angle with a long 55mm fork offset, OutFront Geometry increases stability at speed, while maintaining a quick, agile steering feel. Perfect for the increased weight and speed of an e-road bike. o you can always find the right gear for a comfortable, efficient pedaling cadence, the Synapse NEO is offered with a double chainring crank - the only Bosch-equipped road bike that can do so. Adding to the Synapse NEO's versatility, an elegant removable fender bridge lets you add protection when the weather turns foul, without cluttering the looks when it's nice. To provide nimble handling, comfort, and wide-range gear options, the Synapse NEO was engineered around our Ai offset drivetrain. By moving the drivetrain 6mm to the right, Ai allows for very short chainstays, without compromising tire clearance and makes it possible to run a double chainring crank. And as a bonus, its creates a stiffer, stronger rear wheel.
- Pure power from the Bosch Generation 3 Active Line Plus motor; silent, powerful and light.
- No range anxiety with a large volume 500Wh battery.
- Confident handling with OutFront geometry for high-speed stability and nimble handling as well as a reduced risk of toe overlap on smaller sizes.
- Top specification SRAM Apex gears and SRAM brakes.
- All-day comfort with endurance rider positioning and SAVE micro-suspension.
About the Brand
Cannondale have come a long way since their birth in a crowded loft above a pickle factory in 1971. From introducing the cycling industry's first bicycle trailer, the Bugger, and added successful cycling apparel and accessory lines while earning a strong reputation for innovation and quality. Cannondale introduced its first bicycle, a Touring model, in 1983. They raised the cycling world's eyebrows by building their bicycles around handcrafted, oversized aluminium frames that were both lighter and more flex-resistant than the steel models that dominated the industry at the time. In the last 14 years, Cannondale won five Giro d'Italia Maglia Rosas and most recently won the Giro d'Iltalia and the Vuelta a Espana in one single year!
