A new Cannondale Synapse and new Look pedals

The Cannondale Synapse is one of the most popular endurance bikes around. Cannondale says that the new third generation is lighter and stiffer. There’s a new bar and stem which adds to the ride comfort, it will take 28mm tyres with mudguards and is disc brake only. We’ve ridden the new bike up and down the hills around Lake Como and have a rundown of the range and prices.

Paul started writing for Cycling Weekly in 2015, covering cycling tech, new bikes and product testing. Since then, he’s reviewed hundreds of bikes and thousands of other pieces of cycling equipment for the magazine and the Cycling Weekly website.

He’s been cycling for a lot longer than that though and his travels by bike have taken him all around Europe and to California. He’s been riding gravel since before gravel bikes existed too, riding a cyclocross bike through the Chilterns and along the South Downs.
