Cannondale Topstone Carbon 2 Lefty | Gravel Bike



Cannondale Topstone Carbon 2 Lefty Gravel Bike For Sale Online

The Topstone Carbon distills the knowledge of fast race bikes, comfortable marathon bikes, and ultra-light full-suspension mountain bikes into a single outstanding riding machine. Built for maximum fun in terrain that hardly any other gravel bike offers and for more comfort in all more normal places.

A single pivot point in the seat tube allows the entire rear end – chainstays, seat stays, seat tube, and even the rear part of the top tube – to flex in a controlled manner, like a chain of interconnected leaf springs. This compensates for shocks and vibrations without the weight and complexity of rear dampers or rockers and deflections.

What is proportional

The suspension and overall handling are specially tuned for every frame size thanks to different carbon layups and tube diameters. This means that each frame size has the same perfect suspension response and the same perfect frame stiffness.

No setup, no problem. Just get up and go! Proportional Response and Kingpin Suspension work in perfect harmony to provide every rider with any frame size with super pleasant handling and a lot of confidence and traction.

Just right to play!

Relaxed enough for long days in the saddle, sporty enough to ride full throttle: The Topstone Carbon allows you exactly the riding position that brings comfort and control to your full-day tours and every single trail session.


An integrated impeller sensor provides extremely accurate values for speed, route, and driving distance. It helps you register your bike, reminds you of service intervals, and more – all via the free Cannondale app.

KingPin suspension

Revolutionary, super light suspension for harder off-road driving and smoother on the asphalt.

Incredibly light and sturdy, it offers you up to 30mm of suspension (suspension on the seat and on the rear axle together), which improves comfort, traction, and control whether you are sitting or standing, so you can roll more gently or drive harder than ever.

Designed from the ground up for pure gravel performance, the Lefty Oliver offers 30mm of travel to compensate for bumps. Crisp and efficient on a smooth surface. Supple and serene on rough ground. Unshakeably precise everywhere. This is a whole new level of comfort and control.

It just had to happen. Cannondale has combined the proven, super-light, and effortlessly simple Kingpin rear suspension system with the state-of-the-art Lefty Oliver suspension fork to create the ultimate on-road, off-road, no-road road bike.

All the equipment

There is plenty of storage space for equipment and water, with a multi-position bracket on the down tube and other brackets on the top tube, seat tube, and under the down tube. The non-lefty models even have brackets on the fork.

Speed. Comfort. Traction.

Choose your adventure. The Topstone Carbon is equipped with 700x37c tires, which ensure high speed on the road and good grip on gravel. The Topstone Carbon Lefty is equipped with 650 x 47c tires, which provide even more off-road capability and comfort on the road.
