Cannondale Synapse 2022 reviews opinions opinions defects
Finally the new Cannondale Synapse 2022 has arrived, long overdue and arrived at the very beginning of the season.
A decisive step forward compared to the previous version.
A brand new frame, improved in ride comfort and aerodynamics.
Too bad that the weight has not improved in absolute terms.
The lights, the radar, the disc brakes themselves or the electronic group have not only led to a bike that certainly cannot be defined as light, but also to a technically complex endurance racing bike that is not at all easy to manage.
Maintenance costs, especially in the presence of electronic problems, will be quite high.
The overall quality is very good and the choice of assemblies is equally good.
Too bad that a top-of-the-range version without lights and radar was not made.
It would have cost less, it would have been lighter and ultimately more close to the needs of those who want a comfortable but fast bike.
Because with this new Cannondale Synapse the differences between a pure and simple racing bike and an endurance model so equipped are even wider.
It will be a success, because this is what the cyclists want, at least a large part, but do not be surprised if your companions with the old Synapses detach you uphill ...
