Cannondale Topstone

Cannondale Topstone

Cannondale, has unveiled Topstone. Named after a favourite dirt road section near to Cannondale’s global headquarters, Topstone is a capable and highly versatile gravel road rig.

Built for smashing out big miles on the roughest of gravel roads, Topstone’s confident rider position, nimble handling and grippy high-volume tires make it an ideal weekend tourer, an all-weather commuter, or simply a supremely comfortable all-around road bike.

Prices start at a very reasonable £899.99 for this, the Topstone Sora

The light and smooth-riding SmartForm C2 Alloy frame offers plenty of clearance for 700c tires up to 42mm wide, which provide great grip and give on a wide range of surfaces. A full carbon fork with a tapered steerer and a 12mm thru-axle provide a precise-steering front end, while powerful disc brakes on all models ensure consistent control in all conditions.

Cannondale Topstone 105

Middle of the range will set you back £1,499.99 for the Shimano 105 equipped model (with FSA crankset)

For a comfortably sporty riding position, Topstone features similar stack and reach measurements to Cannondale’s proven endurance road bike, the Synapse. It also has Cannondale’s OutFront Geometry, which pairs a slack head angle with a 55mm fork offset, to deliver a confidence-inspiring combination of high-speed stability and quick-handling agility — perfect for tackling mixed terrain and rough road surfaces.

Cannondale Topstone Apex

For £1,799.99 you get a full SRAM Apex 1×11 Groupset, a dropper seatpost and quite possibly, the best blue hue we’ve seen all year.

With internal cable routing for a dropper seatpost, mounts for top tube storage, and multiple mounts for carrying three bottles or large frame bags, the all-new Topstone is ready for adventure, wherever the road may lead.

The new Topstone line-up will feature three models, SRAM APEX 1 equipped with a dropper post with 55mm of travel (£1799.99), Shimano 105 (1499.99) and Shimano Sora (£899.99), in sizes XS, S, M, L, XL. Bikes are available to order now at local Cannondale Dealers and stock is due to be on shop floors in early November.. For more information on the new Topstone, go to www.cannondale.com.
