Topstone is pure gravel goodness. With its high-volume tires, confident rider position, and sporty handling, it is ready to smash out big miles on the backroads, explore routes less traveled, or smooth out the chop on your morning commute. Topstone Carbon distills Cannondale’s experience making fast race bikes, comfortable endurance bikes, and ultra-light dual suspension mountain bikes into the most off-road capable and on-road comfortable road bike ever made. Designed for maximum fun in places most gravel bikes would fear to tread, or maximum comfort in more sedate terrain.
The Topstone features Kingpin suspension—a revolutionary, super-light system that provides up to 30mm of suspension without the weight and complexity of a shock or linkages, it lets you ride harder on dirt and more smoothly on pavement. 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. It offers better control, better traction, and better comfort with nothing sacrificed.
Cannondale thought of everything when designing Topstone. Big clearance for big tires. Tons of gear and storage mounts. Speed Release thru-axles. DirectLine cable routing. Internal dropper post compatibility. In short, the works. Overall, Topstone is an unprecedented gravel bike with true suspension. The most capable off-road, the most comfortable on-road.
