Cannondale Topstone Carbon 5 Mens Gravel Bike 2021 - Purple

Topstone Carbon
An unprecedented gravel bike with real suspension. It's the most off-road capable and on-road comfortable road bike ever made.


Kingpin Suspension
Revolutionary, super-light suspension that lets you ride harder on dirt and more smoothly on pavement.


Positioned to Play
Relaxed enough to go long, sporty enough to shred, Topstone Carbon offers a riding position that brings comfort and control on all-day adventures and confidence for singletrack sessions.


More Give. More Go.
An unprecedented gravel bike. Rear suspension and fast-rolling 700c wheels offer unmatched comfort, control and speed from tarmac to outback.


Load and go
Plenty of places to store gear and water, with a multi-position mount on the downtube, and more on the top tube, seat tube, and under the down tube. There's even mounts on the forks.


It’s easier to go harder
Refined geometry and rider position deliver an experience that’s stable, composed and comfortable without losing that spark. Go further, ride longer, charge harder.


Topstone Carbon distills our 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, or maximum comfort in more ordinary terrain.


A thru-axle pivot in the seat tube allows the entire back of the frame – the rear stays, seat tube, even the rear of the top tube – to flex like a series of connected leaf-springs, absorbing bumps and road vibration without the weight and complexity of a shock and linkages.


Incredibly light and robust, it gives you up to 30mm of suspension (deflection at the seat and rear axle combined) that improves comfort, traction and control whether you’re seated or standing, letting you roll smoother or push it harder than ever.


Features:

  • BallisTec carbon frameset with Kingpin suspension
  • Shimano GRX 800/600 11-speed shifting / GRX 400 hydraulic disc brakes
  • Integrated Cannondale App connectivity


Where it thrives
Gravel roads, Up and down hills, Out in the elements


What it's built for
Handling, Comfort, Traction

DELIVERY

Ready to ride

Every bike from Start Fitness is fully checked & assembled before despatch and will arrive, almost, ready to ride. Each bike is assembled by one of our CyTech accredited mechanics and then packed into one of our custom boxes. Minimal assembly, with basic tools, is required before you can ride. Assembly tools are not usually included. Please note: Some bikes are not supplied with pedals. Manufacturers don’t know if you want flat or clipless pedals, rather than send the bike with the wrong type, they leave the choice for you to make.   This process has a lead time of between 3-5 working days Unfortunately during peak times this may be slightly delayed. We will however, aim to despatch your bike as quickly as possible.  

Making sure you are home

Once fully checked and boxed, we will contact you to book a delivery date. Our bikes are despatched on a next working day service (excludes weekends & bank holidays) for UK mainland orders, or a two day service to Northern Ireland and outlying Scottish areas. European bike deliveries usually take approximately one week.  


Taking Delivery

Any mechanical or cosmetic issues need to be reported to us within one week of the delivery date. If you do not plan on using the bike straight away, we advise that you remove it from the box and check it over ASAP as we cannot be responsible for any reported issues (other than standard warranty issues) later than one week from the date that the bicycle was delivered.  


First Check-Over

After a few weeks of riding (depending on riding style and conditions), a new bike will need a check-over to make final adjustments and to re-check all nuts and bolts. This is necessary as the bike goes through a ‘bedding in’ phase after which, final adjustment may be necessary. We recommend that this is carried out by a CyTech qualified mechanic. It is important to have these checks carried out to prevent any avoidable problems which may not be covered by warranty and to ensure the smooth running of the bicycle.   We can carry out the first check-over free of charge, at our Newcastle store (NE16JE). If you’ve had the bike delivered, it will be your responsibility to get the bicycle to and from our store for this work to be carried out. This complimentary check-over does not include any labour to replace worn parts or to fit new accessories.   All bikes must be booked in for the first service & must be clean or a £15 cleaning charge will be payable. You can book this by calling 0191 261 4191. Proof of purchase will need to be presented when the bicycle is dropped off for the first check-over.  


Bike Servicing

Bicycles need to be serviced regularly, as a guideline we would advise on at least one full service per year and/or a standard service twice a year. If the bike is used regularly in adverse conditions, more regular servicing may be required.
