Cannondale Synapse Carbon

Amongst the reviews is one from Cycling Weekly from 2016 (covering the 105 model) and mentioning the comfort features and ride position, which are designed to fit with this bike's position aimed at the endurance cycling market. This review also mentions the frame: which considering it is carbon, is assessed as high quality for the price, giving stability at speed and the upgrade possibilities as the wheels could easily be changed for a lighter set, together with a brake upgrade to match the quality of the frame. This review includes a rating of 4.5/5.

There is a review from Road.cc from 2015 (covering the Ultegra Disc model) which firstly emphasises the fast ride, if you decide to have a speedy ride, the balance of frame and fork stiffness, with the light weight, means you can get your head down and race. Also mentioned in this review is the smooth ride: which is due to a great combination of frame quality and geometry, which allows very long rides with the minimum of fatigue, combined with the good brakes using Shimano hydraulic discs, with good power and modulation, making this bike ideal as a fast all-year, all-rounder. If you're interested in ratings, this review gives the bike a 4.5/5.

Bike Radar has a review from 2014 (covering the 5 model) and detailing the all round capability, giving this bike a lead in its class which also made it the Cycling Plus bike of the year. There are also good comments about the speed and comfort: which is exceptional, whether you are racing all day on different surfaces or flat out downhill, where it is very secure and stable and the upgradeability as the basic bike design is so good, its easy to change components and move your bike up through the performance levels. This review gives a rating of 5.0/5.


Cannondale Synapse Alloy

There is a review from Choose My Bicycle from 2016 (covering the 105 Disc model) which firstly emphasises the good comfort, with a pliant and forgiving frame as a result of the suspension technology built into it, which soaks up bumps and poor road surfaces. Also mentioned in this review for the Cannondale Synapse Alloy, is the smooth gearing: which is a result of the established 105 drivetrain components, also providing a good range of gears for most cycling outings, combined with the all round capabilities that result from the bike being designed as an endurance road machine, with a relaxed, stable and predictable behaviour, aided by the disc brakes that stop on anything. If you're interested in ratings, this review gives the bike a 4.0/5.

Reviews include Roadbikeaction.com from 2015 (covering the 105 Disc 5 model) and describing the comfort, which allows this bike to be used on all road surfaces, all day, without too much vibration or road defects giving you fatigue. It also comments on the balanced performance: which ideally suits those who are new to road cycling, but also want to get some speed up on a bike that is still easy to handle, plus the value for money demonstrated by the ability of this bike to fit in with whatever type of cycling you want to do.
