The Cannondale Topstone 4 is the perfect entry level gravel bike, allowing cyclists access to the brilliant Topstone Gravel Bike range. The Topstone 4 is the perfect bike for those looking to enjoy cycling on and off the tarmac, on the same ride - without needing to switch between mountain bikes and road bikes.
At just over £1,000 the Topstone 4 comes ready for instant adventure - and the bike features a SmartForm C2 alloy frame, from Cannondale, the world leaders in alloy frame technology and development. The result is a tough yet lightweight bike, which is enhanced by the use of a full Ballistec Carbon Fork.
On the bike, riders can expect to enjoy the stability from forward out front handling - and the bike is propelled forward by a one x 10 gear set. The cranks on the Topstone 4 are from Prowheel and the gear shift is from microShift. The gearing on this bike has been designed to get you where you need to be - it’s been designed to help you climb gradients with ease, whilst also making a good pace on the tarmac. Stopping power is provided by mechanical disc brakes - and provides reliable performance across all weather conditions.
Tyres fitted to the Topstone 4 in standard specification are 37C WTB tyres - which provide plenty of grip across loose suraces - whilst also remaining pretty efficient when on the road. The Topstone 4 is also well setup to take panniers, racks, bottles and mudguards - so you can modify the bike to suit your exact riding requirements.
