Cannondale Topstone Carbon – All-new gravel bike

The launch of an ultra-capable adventure bike featuring groundbreaking suspension

For 2018 Cannondale launched an brand-new gravel platform – the Topstone. Designed for the rigours of gravel riding, with high volume tyres and a confident riding position, the original Topstone was, and still is, a do-it-all exploration machine. After hours of intensive testing and research, Cannondale has advanced the design to new levels to produce an even more innovative all-road bike.

Developed to be the most comfortable on-road and supremely capable off-road, the new Topstone Carbon blends expertise from Cannondale’s range of fast race bikes, comfortable endurance bikes and lightweight full-suspension mountain bikes. The finished product is an all-road bike designed for maximum fun.

Kingpin Suspension

The most striking feature of the Topstone Carbon is its rear suspension system. Kingpin offers up to 30mm of travel through a special thru-axle pivot in the seat tube allowing engineered flex zones in the rear triangle and top tube to do their magic, absorbing bumps and vibration and improving comfort, traction and control whether you’re seated or standing.

Designed for proper gravel adventures, the Topstone comes with 700x37c tyres as standard but with room for up to 40mm, tons of gear and storage mounts plus dropper post compatibility. In short, it’s got everything you can think of.
