The Cannondale Topstone 1 Gravel Bike is built for long days of exploring over road and trail alike. The SmartForm C2 Alloy frame benefits from decades of Cannondale research into aluminium, delivering a lightweight and durable ride while the BallisTec carbon fibre fork keeps the steering lightweight and responsive.
With a Shimano GRX groupset, this bike is honed for gravel riding, as the hydraulic disc brakes deliver superb stopping power and the rear derailleur’s clutch mechanism prevents chain slap as you power over rough ground. The 11-speed cassette has a wide range, making steep hills even more accessible with the sub-compact FSA Omega crankset.
The removable mudguard bridge keeps the bike looking neat without mudguards and provides the versatility to turn it into a super-commuter if you wish. There are also mounts for additional bottle cages, bento boxes and pannier racks, making it a serious bike packing option too. Rolling on a set of WTB Nano 40mm tyres, you’re getting great traction off-road and fairly smooth rolling on tarmac. Since the rims and tyres are tubeless-ready, you have the option to convert to a tubeless setup and enjoy even lower tyre pressure for maximum comfort.
