    Black and green. Although my viewing of greens/yellows isn't fantastic!

    It's the traditional Cannondale green.

    Didn't realise that, so the Liquigas colours?

    EDIT: It would appear this current colour is labelled by Cannondale as 'Neon Spring' - which leaves me none the wiser.
    Don't suppose anyone on here has one they could send me some HQ pics of one out in natural light?

    What about this one?

    Same again I am assuming? Or is this a bit more yellow\fluro that the first one no??
    It messes with my eyes :shock:

    It reminds me a bit of the Rapha Chartreuse colour.

    Chartreuse (the web color) is a color halfway between yellow and green that was named because of its resemblance to the green color of one of the French liqueurs called green chartreuse, introduced in 1764. Similarly, chartreuse yellow is a yellow color mixed with a small amount of green that was named because of its resemblance to the color of one of the French liqueurs called yellow chartreuse

    Cannondale green is "a thing" - they seem to have adopted it from Liquigas (see current pro team kit - VERY green). I would therefore suspect that anything they produce that looks like it might be bright green is probably bright green.

    You can see some small yellow logos on the tyre walls/rims in the picture - when compared, the colour of the frame definitely looks green.

    Varies a bit between Dales mind. Mine is not, IMO, Cannondale green. That's the green that's on the saddle there.

    Agreed BTR, yours is VERY green - but I am now enamoured with the second one I posted, and in contrast that's a much more yellow\limey green do you concur?

    The second Synapse is yellow, the colour is the same one as the CAAD10 Dura Ace. The first is current Cannondale Green, which is slightly more green and a bit less flouro than the Liquigas green.
