Ideally suited for riders looking to make their first foray into cycling or for the rider looking for an affordable option that does not skimp on performance.

Cannondale Synapse Sora Alloy Road Bike 2016

Affordable, reliable, comfortable and high-performing; all words you could use to describe the Cannondale Synapse Sora Alloy Road Bike 2016. Designed to maximise your riding enjoyment without impact too heavily on your finances, this bike is jammed full of many of the features normally reserved to Cannondale's higher range bikes.

One such feature is the superb optimised alloy 6061 frame with a Cannondale Synapse Save carbon fork. This combination features the American manufacturer's Endurance Geometry, which is designed to be comfortable and responsive.

Shimano's Sora 3500 groupset provides the perfect blend of value and smooth shifting, so you can easily find the gear you need. The 9-speed 11-32 cassette ensures that you have the gear range to conquer even the most intimidating of hills, while the Promax RC-459 brakes make sure you have the stopping power to descend with confidence.


  • Save plus Micro Alloy - Suspension: By flattening and butting the chain stays and triaxially forming the seat stays, Cannondale have created a rear stay assembly that allows significant deflection vertically to absorb road shock and vibration, while staying extremely rigid laterally for power transfer and confident cornering.

  • Endurance Geometry: Compared with Cannondale's Elite race geometry, the Synapse geometry features a taller head tube (2-2.5 cm taller), gently sloping top tube, slightly relaxed head angle and longer wheelbase. This combination provides a more upright riding position and a lively, yet stable feel. It’s confidence inspiring and relaxing but avoids the sluggish feel and awkward handling of many “comfort” road bikes.

  • Optimised 6061 Alloy Construction: Cannondale’s legendary double-pass smooth welds join optimally shaped taper-butted tubes for a great combination of svelte light weight, stiffness and durability.

  • Carbon Blade Fork: Carbon fork blades with integrated SAVE features provide additional comfort and sharp handling.

  • BB30 System: Cannondale invented BB30 15 years ago to take crank and frame performance to the next level and it has become THE industry standard for stiffness and light weight. Found on both the 105 and Tiagra equipped models.

  • Disc Brakes: Several models feature the great stopping power and wet weather control of disc brakes.
