Synapse 2 RLE
Roll smooth, roll fast, roll confident. Wherever the road takes you, roll with Synapse – our most comfortable, all-around, up-for-anything, pure road machine.
Wide Ranging Capabilities
Clearance for 35mm tires lets you venture beyond the perfectly paved with comfort and grip - or ride through the wet season with full fenders.
Comfort and control you feel, not see. Everything you need for a bump-absorbing smooth ride is engineered into the frame shape and carbon layup - giving you a light, sleek ride that's unlike anything else.
Tuned for the Rider
Our Proportional Response size-specific construction creates optimal frame stiffness and compliance for each frame size, so that every rider experiences Synapse's glorious ride feel.
Mounts and eyelets galore means you can equip Synapse for whatever the day has in store, including full fender compatibility. Even rain can't keep Synapse down.
SmartSense is connected and ready from the first spin of the wheel, so you can hit the road with the peace of mind of intelligent lights and radar. More visibility. Better awareness. Less pre-ride fiddling.
