Cannondale Topstone Carbon & Carbon Lefty

The blisteringly fast Cannondale Topstone Carbon and new Topstone Carbon Lefty build on the runaway success of their lightweight aluminium sibling, with even lower weights and innovative micro-suspension systems that extend their all-road capabilities even further, while keeping the wheels planted and allowing you to keep the power on across the roughest of back-roads. If you are looking for a gravel racer or gravel tamer, then look no further!

“As close to a one-bike-does-it-all as I’ve got to so far. The Cannondale Topstone Carbon has been endowed with a magic carpet level of ride quality. Fast, efficient, confident off-road and above all supremely comfortable, there really is nothing to fault. 10/10” Cycling Weekly

A refined geometry and rider position deliver an experience that’s stable, composed and comfortable without losing that spark, enabling you to go further, ride longer, and move faster across a huge variety of under-tyre conditions.   The Topstone Carbon range represents quite simply the fastest and most capable collection of off-road gravel bikes ever made, at the same time as being the most comfortable on-road bikes you’ll ever ride.

The Topstone Carbon distills all of Cannondale’s experience of making fast race bikes, comfortable endurance bikes and ultra-light dual suspension mountain bikes into an exceptional machine, designed for maximum fun and speed in places beyond most gravel bikes’ abilities, or maximum comfort in less challenging terrain.  If you need convincing, and have a spare half hour, you won’t regret watching Lachlan Morton taking on GBDuro, the UK’s End-to-End gravel racing epic.

The trademark KingPin Suspension system offers revolutionary, super-light suspension that lets you ride harder on dirt and more smoothly on pavement – with better control, better traction and better comfort. With nothing sacrificed.

Key to the success and performance of the Topstone Carbon is its frame geometry.  Cannondale call it “Dialed Endurance Fit”, which offers a perfectly  balanced riding position: upright enough for comfort over the long haul and control when tackling technical off-road terrain, yet still low and forward enough for speedy efficiency.  OutFront steering geometry keeps the steering light and agile, while positioning the wheel further in front of the rider for stability and confidence on rougher stuff. Plus it reduces the chance of toe overlap on smaller sizes.

The Topstone Carbon is built with Proportional Response Construction.  Suspension and overall frame ride-feel is custom tuned by size, using different carbon layup and different tube dimensions, so each size is dialed for the rider, to give everyone the same riding capability and handling experience.

With the Topstone Carbon, Cannondale have thought of pretty much everything – big clearance for big tires; tons of gear and storage mounts; Speed Release thru-axles; DirectLine internal cable routing; internal dropper post compatibility.  Cannondale have also introduced “Connected” capability with the Topstone Carbon – an integrated wheel sensor delivers accurate speed, route and distance info, registers your bike, reminds you of needed service and more, all through the free Cannondale App.

TECHNICAL FEATURES

KingPin Suspension:  Revolutionary, super-light suspension that lets you ride harder on dirt and more smoothly on pavement with nothing sacrificed.  Up to 30mm of suspension, without the weight and complexity of a shock or linkages.

A special thru-axle pivot in the seat tube allows 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.

Topstone Lefty Oliver Fork: It had to happen. Cannondale have paired their proven, super-light and effortlessly simple Kingpin rear suspension system with their cutting-edge built-for-gravel Lefty Oliver suspension fork to create the ultimate on-road, off-road, no-road, road bike.  Engineered from the ground up for pure gravel performance, Lefty Oliver offers up 30mm of bump-smoothing travel. Crisp and efficient on the smooth stuff. Smooth and composed on the rough stuff. Unwaveringly precise everywhere. It’s a whole new level of comfort and control.

Big Tyre Clearance:  The Cannondale Topstone Carbon comes as standard either with big 700x37c tyres (with clearance out back for some 40c tyres, and up front for 43c) for grip, low weight and rolling efficiency, or with 650x47c if big volume, extra grip and wide is your thing – with additional agility thrown in for good measure.  But if you want to switch, then go ahead! Doesn’t matter which frame or fork you choose, they are all compatible with either 700c or 650b wheels.

Easy Internal Cable Routing:  With Cannondale’s DirectLine cable routing, an internal tube guides the cable and housing through the frame, from entry to exit for headache-free maintenance.

Keep Dry:  The Topstone Carbon is fully mudguard ready.  A removable mudguard bridge on the rear stays is there when you need it, gone when you don’t.

Carry That Gear:  Plenty of places to store gear and water, with a multi-position mount on the downtube, and more on the top tube, seat tube, and under the down tube.  There’s even mounts on the forks.

Speed Release Equipped:  Speed Release thru-axles offer the stiffness and solid feel of a thru-axle, with the easy use of a quick release axle.  In fact, wheel removal and replacement is far faster than with any conventional quick release (rim brake) skewer.

Compatible with most thru-axle wheelsets.
