The full-tilt Slate is a drop-bar bike designed with Cannondale's innovative Lefty fork, boasting massive 42c tyres on small wheels to give that road bike speed without compromising on cornering grip and traction.
Designed with fun in mind, the smooth Slate easily tackles potholes, curbs and bumpy trails without a hitch. With short chain stays and a long front-centre, this surprisingly light bike stays quick and stable even on off-road excursions. Offering a low, traditional road bike position, the Slate seats you with some gentle upright comfort.
The Slate is ideal for any road bikers looking to hit that next thrill level or MTBs who want a road bike that is a little more capable of adventure.
