Cannondale Topstone Carbon Lefty

The World’s most capable gravel bike.  Whatever the terrain.

This is the bike we were all waiting for – and it was well worth the wait. Cannondale have paired their proven, super-light and effortlessly simple Kingpin rear suspension system with a brand new cutting-edge, built-for-gravel Lefty Oliver 30mm gravel suspension fork – meaning better control, greater range of surfaces and even more comfort over the very toughest of terrain.  And the addition of the Lefty fork is no after-thought – the Topstone Carbon was designed from the outset to accommodate both the Lefty and rigid forks.  The result is just incredible – this bike is pure fun and you just won’t want to stop riding, wherever you ride.

The Topstone Carbon Lefty comes with higher volume 650 x 47c tyres for even greater off-road ability and on-road comfort.  Combined with a refined geometry and rider position, the Topstone Lefty delivers a riding experience that’s nothing short of exhilarating over a massive range of under-tyre conditions.   The Topstone Carbon Lefty is, quite simply, the most aggressive gravel bike ever built – all delivered in a package that is as comfortable and stable as it is grin inducing fun!

The trademark KingPin Suspension system offers revolutionary, super-light suspension that pairs up beautifully with the Lefty Oliver front fork, to deliver a balanced ride that leaves the rider in full control while riding as hard as you like over the widest possible range of surfaces from tarmac to rocky singletrack. With nothing sacrificed.

Key to the success and performance of the Topstone Carbon Lefty 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.

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.
