If you are looking to get into road cycling, or speed up and smooth out your commute, then you cannot go wrong with the incredibly priced and comfortable Cannondale Synapse Claris Womens Alloy Road Bike 2016.
Cannondale Women’s S.E.R.G. geometry offers a balanced yet engaging ride. This geometry mirrors the ride position of the carbon versions and also features, innovative, SAVE PLUS micro-suspension technology to provide a smooth and comfortable ride. The endurance position will also allow you to feel more confident and in control thanks to the elevated front end. Additionally, the women's specific components, such as the saddle and handlebars, will also boost your feelings of safety, as opposed to doing battle with an overly large unisex bike.

For this year, the crankset is upgraded to the reliable and stylish FSA Tempo crankset with a double chainring setup and featuring an FSA BB7420 bottom bracket.
Another upgrade for 2016 are the durable Maddux RS 3.0 32-hole rims. These have been combined with Cannondale C4 hubs to provide a durabel and lightweight wheelset. This is adorned with Schwalbe Lugano 25c tyres that offer immense puncture protection and grip in both the wet and dry.
Ready to stop at a moments notice, the Tektro R315 brakes are the long drop version which allows them the perfect clearance to work perfectly with the Synapse's rack and mudguard mounts, making this the ideal bike for commuting or touring in all weathers.
Cannondale have used their C4 range for the compact alloy handlebar, 7 degree stem and 25.4 millimetre wide seat post, which adds comfort and minimises road buzz.
