Do you want to be free to adventure and transition from road to gravel paths within the same ride?
Do you enjoy exploring the notoriously rough lanes in the UK?
Do you want the flexibility to add mudguards and racks for a longer adventure or tour?
Introducing the Cannondale Slate: a drop bar road bike with a Lefty Fork and massive tires making this an exceptionally smooth, fun ride with road-bike quickness.
It looks so cool!
Super lightweight Lefty Oliver suspension fork and 42c tyres make this a super smooth ride
What do Cannondale have to say?
“With the big-volume tires, plush SAVE PLUS (+) rear triangle, and Lefty Oliver suspension fork, the Slate is magically smooth over bumps and chatter.
Despite its burly look, Slate weighs less than a kilo more than comparable road bikes and it carries speed like a traditional (but bizarrely smooth) road bike.
Massive 42c tires on 650b wheels give you the same roll-out diameter as a 700x23c wheel for proper road bike speed, but with unreal cornering grip, traction and comfort.”
The Slate has received some great reviews:
8/10 on Cycling Weekly
Great Long-Term review on CyclingAbout- where the slate was really put through its paces on a 5000km+ adventure!
4/5 (Very Good) from BikeRadar
Don't let the terrain hold you back!
