Cannondale Synapse NEO SE Review


A bike is used for moving from one location to another, and in addition, it is used for several purposes and activities. There are different types of bikes, and the reason for this is because of the different activities that people use them for, and this is understandable. Those who enjoy bike competitions will use the road bikes because it has been designed to be used on the road, and the design has been done for maximum speed. Someone who wants to participate in competitions won’t use a different type of bike because it has been built for a different purpose, and the design supports it.

A gravel bike is used for off-road adventures and the reason for this is because of its features. Considering this, you won’t want to use a gravel bike instead of a road bike because it isn’t designed for that kind of terrain and activity. In addition to this, there is a third type that is getting more popular: the e-bike. An e-bike is a cycle that uses a motor to aid the cyclist in riding the bike, and there are about three kinds of e-bike. However, sometimes an e-bike is explicitly made for an activity as the road and gravel bike is designed.

There are different things to look at before you make a purchase and this reason for this is so you don’t make a buy you will regret later on. One of the first things most people do is make sure that the bike they are about to buy fits into the purpose they intend for it. If they want a bike for adventure, it is easier to look at bikes in the gravel category. Also, it is good to check out the features of the bike you want to purchase, and this will let you know the value of the money you get in any purchase.

There are different types of bike material that you can get out there, however, there are only two that are mostly used because of the properties that they have. The frame material is important because you don’t want a bike that won’t last you a while. The two frame materials are aluminum and carbon. The brake system is essential, and a sound brake system allows you to control the bike comfortably.

The saddle of the bike you want to purchase is also necessary because this is the part of the bike that will help make you comfortable and deal with the stress that comes with long rides or bumpy terrains. Lastly, it would be best if you considered the price of the bicycle you wish to purchase, the reason for this is so you make sure that it fits into your budget and doesn’t leave you broke.

Cannondale Synapse NEO SE

This bike is an e-bike, and it has been specified to serve as a gravel bike which means you can use this for off-road adventures, and you should be fine. It comes with an Intube battery integration which is a plus to the bike, and the battery, which has a 500 Wh power, is carefully concealed below the aluminum frame. It comes with a 650B WTB tire, which is a good thing because the clearance of the tire frame is okay.

The frame has been built to be versatile because of the different bottle cages, racks, and mudguards that have been put in place. The Cannondale Synapse relies on the classic purion display, which is excellent compared with other bikes out there. It comes with a rotor at the rear, and the front measures about 160mm; the seat post and cockpit have been made with aluminum. However, the downside of this bike is that it is heavy, and it weighs about 18.46 kg.
