2021 Cannondale TopStone Carbon 3 Left Gravel Bike
Available from the 29th March we have this great spec 2021 Cannondale Topstone 3 Carbon (L frame) - RRP £4000
The bike has had minimal use so the condition is excellent with only light signs of use on the usual components (cranks, rims etc) but overall a clean bike and recently inspected by a Cannondale dealer so the bike will arrive in full working order.
The Cannondale Topstone Carbon Lefty is fun and versatility to the max. With 30mm of front suspension travel and unique rear suspension the Topstone Carbon Lefty can go on adventures beyond all other gravel bikes.
Topstone Carbon distils Cannondale's experience making fast race bikes, comfortable endurance bikes and ultra-light dual suspension mountain bikes into an exceptional machine, designed for maximum fun in places beyond most gravel bikes' abilities.
The Lefty Oliver suspension fork supplies 30mm of front fork travel with all the pin point steering accuracy that Lefty is renowned for.
The all-carbon frame of the Topstone Carbon features the KingPin Suspension System giving up to 30mm of bump smoothing suspension, without the weight and complexity of a shock or linkages. Frame stability is maintained by the LockR Pivot which locks the left and right seat-stays together, preventing independent rotation for a solid feel and instantaneous response. The Proportional Response Construction means the suspension and overall frame ride-feel is custom tuned by size, using different carbon layup and different tube dimensions, so each size is dialled for the rider ensuring an optimised ride quality.
The Topstone Carbon Lefty runs on 650 rims with 47mm wide tyres to maximise both comfort t and control. Coupled to the front suspension the wider tyres really open up some many new ride options when compared to the standard Topstone.
There are plenty of places to store gear and water, with a multi-position mount on the downtube, more on the top tube, seat tube, and under the down tube too. The frame is rear mudguard ready with an optional fender bridge (not supplied) which can be fitted if necessary. DirectLine cable routing uses an internal tube which guides the cable and housing through the frame from entry to exit for headache-free service. SpeedRelease rear thru-axle offer the stiffness and solid feel of a thru-axle, with the easy use of a quick release axle. (Compatible with most thru-axle wheelsets). Topstone Carbon Lefty is also dropper post ready and will accept an internally-routed 27.2 dropper seatpost, which shouldn't really be a surprise on a bike that's this off-road capable.
