The Cannondale Topstone gravel bike is the perfect quiver killer. With geometry close to a road bike but with relaxed angles to inspire confidence and comfort on mixed terrain, the cannondale Topstone is the perfect choice if you only can have one bike or if you want to add some light off-road riding to your weekend rides. With room for fatter tyres and added compliance built in to the frame design, the Topstone is a perfect bike for a large variety of riding. With gravel tyres the bike is ideal for road spins where you dare to venture off the beaten track. Bridlepath's, fire roads, singletrack and rough country lanes are easily conquerable with the added grip, compliance and control of fat 700x40c wtb nano tyres.
Want more of a road set up? That's fine just fit a set of narrover tyres and you have a compfortable endurance bike to keep you comfy and in control for sportives, club spins and long days in the saddle. With plenty of room for mudguards the cannondale Topstone 105 is a perfect winter mile muncher or everyday commuter and is even capable of tackling the occasional cyclocross race with room for fat tyres, powerful disc brakes and lots of mud clearance.
The shimano 105 groupset give reliable performance in all weather conditions and wide tubeless ready rims give you a grip advantage both on and off road.
This is the bike for you if you crave comfort, durability, versatility and adventure over the out and out speed of a road-only bike. If you haven't tried a gravel bike yet then prepare to be amazed, you'll smile more than you have on your road bike in years.
