The 2020 Cannondale Topstone Carbon

The New Cannondale Topstone Carbon, More Give More Go

Cannondale's Topstone Carbon is the most off-road capable, on-road comfortable, road bike ever made. Designed for maximum fun in places many gravel bikes would fear to tread while offering maximum comfort on smoother terrain.

Ride More Places With Greater Ease

Cannondale's all-new Topstone Carbon takes gravel bikes to the next level with a suspension design Cannondale calls Kingpin. It's a super-light suspension that lets you ride harder on dirt and more smoothly on pavement and in the process offers better control, added traction, and more comfort over the rough stuff and the long haul. The best part, nothing of what you want in a performance gravel bike is sacrificed.

The Kingpin allows for 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.

And, the Topstone Carbon's suspension design is not one-size-fits all. Suspension and overall frame ride-feel is custom tuned by size through Cannondale manipulating the carbon layup and tube dimensions per bike size(there are five, XS to XL) to deliver the right amount of flex and stiffness for each rider. So all you need to do is get on and ride. And that's easier than ever with a refined geometry and rider position that delivers an experience that’s stable, composed, and comfortable without losing that spark. Go further, ride longer, charge harder.

The Topstone Carbon has it all; big clearance for big tires, tons of gear and storage mounts, Speed Release thru-axles, DirectLine cable routing, internal dropper post compatibility. Plus, with an optional integrated wheel sensor you can get hyper accurate speed, route, and distance info, register your bike, get valuable service reminders and more, all through the free Cannondale App.

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.
