Named after a favourite dirt road loop near Cannondale’s headquarters in Connecticut, Topstone is pure gravel goodness. However, the 2020 Topstone Carbon isn't a subtle update on last years spec but rather a whole new model. It's an unprecedented gravel bike with real suspension, easily the most off-road capable and on-road comfortable road bike ever made.
The 2020 Topstone Carbon distils Cannondale's experience making fast race bikes, comfortable endurance bikes and ultra-light dual suspension mountain bikes into an exceptional machine, designed for maximum fun in places beyond most gravel bikes' abilities, or maximum comfort in more ordinary terrain.
Topstone Carbon 105 Highlights
Revolutionary, super-light suspension (up to 30mm) that lets you ride harder on dirt and more smoothly on pavement. Better control. Better traction. Better comfort. Nothing sacrificed.
It’s Easier to Go Harder
Refined geometry and rider position deliver an experience that’s stable, composed and comfortable without losing that spark. Go further, ride longer, charge harder.
The Last Detail
Cannondale thought of everything. Big clearance for big tyres. Tons of gear and storage mounts. Speed Release thru-axles. DirectLine cable routing. Internal dropper post compatibility. In short, the works.
