Product Description

For those whose love for the road extends beyond just the road. For those whose thirst for fun and adventure cannot be quenched by mere road bikes or those dreary grinders of gravel. For all those who don't necessarily want to road-ride, but who just want to ride the roads, and the verges, the trails, and whatever strikes their fancy, we proudly offer a road bike unlike anything you've ever seen.

First up: the name. Cannondale came up with a new idea of a road bike and wiped the slate clean. Get it? Slate… One of the big leaps away from current road bikes is the move to 650B wheels. 650B wheels are all the rage in mountain bikes now as they sit between 26” (which are now all but extinct) and 29”. When paired with 42mm tyres, the outside diameter is the same as a 700c wheel shod with 22mm tyres. This means you have no penalty from the smaller wheel size but you do have loads more comfort due to the increased tyre volume.

The fork is a new model of Cannondale’s Lefty but with a more road friendly 30mm of travel. The Lefty fork is something of great debate amongst mountain bikers but it’s widely considered to be amongst the stiffest mountain bike forks available. The Slate matches this fork with a 71.5 degree head angle (giving a 66.3mm rake) and 405mm chainstays for a 1015mm wheelbase.
