Ride with ease thanks to the relaxed handling and comfortable fit of Cannondale's Synapse Carbon 5 105. The lively feel of Cannondale's lightweight, vibration-damping carbon frame and tapered fork are great for all types of rides. From quick spins to multi-day charity events, your every command is met with a host of quality components, including a crisp-shifting FSA/Shimano 105 22-speed parts group that features compact cranks so you can conquer any hill, and powerful dual-pivot brakes for confidence and control on the descents. You'll also love the easy-rolling Shimano wheels and women's specific saddle and handlebar.
For increased stiffness and improved steering precision, a tapered head tube (see image on left) and fork pair an oversize lower steerer tube (usually 1 1/2-inch, see image on right) with a standard diameter upper steerer tube (usually 1 1/8-inch). This combination sheds weight compared to a straight 1 1/2-inch system, and adds stability and stiffness when compared to a straight 1 1/8-inch system. The result is a bike that tracks better through corners while allowing for the use of standard stems.
