Beautiful Engineering

The Cannondale Topstone is Cannondale’s all-new, very recently announced a line of affordable and adaptable alloy gravel bikes. This is probably one of the best gravel bikes on the market right now that is affordable to almost everyone.

With generous clearances, rack and mudguard mounts and a comfort-focussed geometry, on paper at least, the Topstone looks like an ideal bike for touring, gravel racing and year-round road riding.

But what makes this affordable yet fairly unadventurous gravel bike one of the most important of 2018? This bike is a gravel grinding, road riding sportive bike thrown into one.

An aluminum frame with a full carbon fork and massive tire clearance make this a great choice for those who want the best of both worlds in road biking and gravel grinding threw into one bike for a considerable amount of cash.

Add on top of that a dropper seat post for those tricky descents and you are looking at a really well-equipped gravel bike that can take you almost anywhere.

Tgear selection simple. add to that a 40-tooth chainring and an 11-42 11-speed cassette, to give you a good choice at either end of the spectrum.

This groupset also gives you a well balanced and reliable shifting selection without paying a premium price normally associated with top-flight components.

Hydraulic disc brakes are standard as you would hope for on a gravel bike, and they provide powerfully, precise braking under all conditions.

To complete the package we have WTB i23 rims, fitted with good quality and gravel smooth 40mm WTB Nano TCS tires to take away the rough surfaces of the gravel or dirt tracks.
