Known for its rough terrain and pavé, the 2018 edition of The Hell of the North will be the site where the entire EF Education First-Drapac p/b Cannondale squad will be aboard Synapse. SAVE Micro-Suspension technology has been at the heart of the Synapse design since its introduction in 2006. Engineered flex zones in the frame and fork will soak up vibration and chatter, keeping riders attacking the cobbles, comfortable and in control.
