Press Release: Cannondale Introduces the Topstone Gravel Bike – Aluminium that won’t break the bank

“Named after a favorite dirt road section near Cannondale’s global headquarters in Connecticut, the Topstone is a capable and highly versatile gravel road rig.” – Cannondale

“Built for smashing out big miles on the roughest of gravel roads, the Topstone’s confident rider position, nimble handling and grippy high-volume tires make it an ideal weekend tourer, an all-weather commuter, or simply a supremely comfortable all-around road bike.”

“The light and smooth-riding SmartForm C2 Alloy frame offers plenty of clearance for 700c tires up to 42mm wide, which provide great grip and give on a wide range of surfaces. A full carbon fork with a tapered steerer and a 12mm thru-axle provide a precise-steering front end, while powerful disc brakes on all models ensure consistent control in all conditions.”

“For a comfortably sporty riding position, the Topstone features similar stack and reach measurements to Cannondale’s proven endurance road bike, the Synapse. It also has Cannondale’s OutFront Geometry, which pairs a slack head angle with a 55mm fork offset, to deliver a confidence-inspiring combination of high-speed stability and quick-handling agility — perfect for tackling mixed terrain and rough road surfaces.”

“With internal cable routing for a dropper seatpost, mounts for top tube storage, and multiple mounts for carrying three bottles or large frame bags, the all-new Topstone is ready for adventure, wherever the road may lead.”

  1. I am currently on the CAAD X and have owned their CAAD 10 road bike in the past.
    Running 40c Gravel Kings on the CAAD X and after swapping the (too heavy) stock FSA crank our for a lighert carbon set (also FSA) the bike is close in weight to most of the OPEN UPs I sell!
