Cannondale 2015 Synapse Alloy Sora Road Bike


The Cannondale 2015 Synapse Alloy Sora Road Bike might just be the perfect first road bike. It combines an upright position for greater riding comfort with silky smooth SAVE PLUS technology that gives first-time road riders, commuters and fitness-lovers a versatile blend of comfort, speed and value.


Cannondale have a reputation for shaking up the industry, continually optimising hybrid bicycle design in ways that have directly translated into race victories and team riders pushing the limits of what’s possible on a bike.




  • SAVE PLUS Alloy Micro-Suspension: By flattening and butting the chain stays and triaxially forming the seat stays, Cannondale create a rear stay assembly that allows significant deflection vertically to absorb road shock and vibration, while staying extremely rigid laterally for power transfer and confident cornering.
  • Compared with Cannondale’s Elite race geometry, the Synapse geometry features a taller head tube (2-2.5cm taller), gently sloping top tube, slightly relaxed head angle and longer wheelbase. This combination provides a more upright riding position and a lively, yet stable feel. It’s confidence inspiring and relaxing but avoids the sluggish feel and awkward handling of many “comfort” road bikes.
  • Cannondale’s legendary double-pass smooth welds join optimally shaped taper-butted tubes for a great combination of svelte light weight, stiffness and durability.
  • Carbon fork blades with integrated SAVE features provide additional comfort and sharp handling.
  • Subtle, understated rack and fender mounts add versatility.

Ready to ride
Every bike from Start Fitness is fully checked & assembled before despatch and will arrive, almost, ready to ride. Each bike is assembled by one of our CyTech accredited mechanics and then packed into one of our custom boxes. Minimal assembly, with basic tools, is required before you can ride. Assembly tools are not usually included. More details can be found here.
Please note: Some bikes are not supplied with pedals. Manufacturers don’t know if you want flat or clipless pedals, rather than send the bike with the wrong type, they leave the choice for you to make.
This process has a lead time of around 2-3 working days
Unfortunately during peak times this may be slightly delayed. We will however, aim to despatch your bike as quickly as possible.
Making sure you are home
Once fully checked and boxed, we will contact you to book a delivery date. Our bikes are despatched on a next working day service (excludes weekends & bank holidays) for UK mainland orders, or a two day service to Northern Ireland and outlying Scottish areas. European bike deliveries usually take approximately one week.

Customer Reviews

What a Deal. Review by Andy
Picked up a fantastic deal from Start Cycles. Bike is fantastic. Delivered on time only a few days after I ordered it. Delivered with wheels on and only the pedals and handles bars to fix - a ten minute job with a spanner and allen key. I was out on the road within half an hour. Gears and brakes all in working order but need a minor tweak now after 50 miles of bedding in. Cannondale Synapse is great for me even though it is their entry level machine. I have a mountain bike and hybrid bike (for the work commute) but the difference with this one on the roads is amazing. Very light and adequately spec'd. I considered a carbon frame but having tried this I am glad I saved a few hundred quid. Bike looks great too. Last years model but a great saving on this years price - who will know the difference? I am 6' 12" and I went for the 58cm frame. Perfect for me.

Go for it. I would use Start Cycles again. Their service was spot on. (Posted on 29/04/2016)
Excellent cycle and superb value for money Review by Michael
As a first time cyclist I wanted to buy a quality cycle but without paying a premium price. I was advised to look for a previous years model and the Cannondale from Start Cycles ticked all the boxes. The bike arrived within 2 days and required very little work form me to put it together. It far exceeded my expectations and having been out on it for a few 10 mile rides I can say it more than suits my needs. I'd also like to add that the service from Start Cycles was exceptional and probably the best Customer Service I have ever experienced. (Posted on 24/04/2016)
Cracking Review by Dennis
Firstly fantastic price significantly cheaper than other outlets. Delivery very timely ordered over Easter and bike arrived on the following Friday morning. Very good packaging and pre built, all that needed doing was attaching the handlebars and the pedals. Service from Start excellent as I added a new pair of shoes after a couple of days with no problems. Now for the bike, first impressions are that its a real steal at the price handles well though my only real reference point is a hybrid that I've been riding for a number of years. It's very comfortable to ride and much easier to maintain a good speed. I would recommend start cycles and the bike. (Posted on 02/04/2016)
Excellent Review by Clive
Both the bike and shopping experience was excellent. The bike is fantastic and priced very competitively. The staff at Start Cycles were also very good and helpful with any questions that I asked. Being sceptical in the first instance, my worries disappeared when the bike arrived 3 days earlier and expected. They made several calls and kept me updated every step of the way. All in all, a first class experience and I am very happy customer. (Posted on 22/03/2016)

Cheapest around, delivered quicker than expected. Review by Jim
Well done Start cycles, price was the best i could find by a fair margin. Bike arrived quicker than expected, I think ordered on the Sunday and was with me all assembled but for the pedals and bars by Thursday.

Gears needed a bit of a fettle after the first ride and the brakes were slightly misaligned however this was very easily rectified and could easily have occured during the shipping process. Neither of these were major issues at all.

First class, I was more than happy with the entire process. many thanks to the team at Start Cycles :)

Bargain Review by Noel
The bike arrived all set up, with just the handlebars to assemble. The frame is excellent which will support upgrades on other components in the future, when they wear and tear. The set up on the bike for the price is a total bargain, and it being my son's first road bike it's a brilliant start.
Communication with staff at Start cycles was also very good and they were very helpful throughout, thank you (Posted on 29/12/2015)
ALL GOOD ALL AROUND (Posted on 15/11/2015)
