Road Reimagined

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.

Where it thrives

The open road, up & down hills, rough pavement

What it's built for

Comfort, handling, going long


  • Lightweight SmartForm C2 Alloy Frame w/ full carbon fork
  • Shimano Sora 9-speed drivetrain w/ dual chainring FSA crank
  • Powerful mechanical disc brakes


    So Smooth

    With Synapse Alloy, comfort is built in. Synapse Alloy’s frame tubes are shaped and butted with absolute precision to help absorb road chatter and bumps without adding weight or isolating you from the ride experience.

    So Comfortable

    Synapse Alloy moves with both pace and grace. A comfortable riding position, planted handling, and the wonderful responsiveness of alloy under power, all create a bike that will help you feel in control and get more out of every ride.

    So Capable

    Synapse’s comfort and confidence brings utility, too. Balanced geometry, plenty of gear/bottle mounts, and clearance for 32mm wide tires that bring cushion and grip, mean Synapse is ready to rock on any road

    So Ready

    Don’t sweat the small stuff. Synapse comes with a Contain top tube bag on some models. It’s easy to load and easy to reach while you’re riding. Bring snacks, tools, a map, or whatever else will help you go farther.
