Taipei Cycle Show Display Bike #1: Tina Kuo's Cannondale Synapse Hi-Mod Team
23 March, 2017
The Cannondale Synapse Hi-Mod Team brings space age futuristic performance to endurance riding by melding oversized high modulus carbon fiber responsiveness with the tirelessly smooth riding attributes favored by distance riders. From Tour of Flanders to the highest intensity time trial, there is little that the Synapse Hi-Mod can’t overcome.
This ground up, no-compromise build for Tina Kuo, head of WTB’s Taiwan Office, boasts progressively wide WTB Ci24 tubeless carbon rims supporting high thread count WTB Exposure 30 TCS tires, again blending lightweight efficiency with an effortlessly supple ride quality. A fully electronic Shimano Di2 Dura Ace and XTR drivetrain combines speed with range while a color-matched WTB High Tail Carbon saddle ties race inspired aesthetics to irrefutable comfort.
WTB is honored to highlight the duality of the Exposure 30’s intent on the Cannondale Synapse - a bike that is equal parts light, fast, smooth, and tireless – mirroring the intent of the Exposure 30mm high-end road tubeless tire.
