COVID-19 Important collection and delivery information
Where delivery times are stated as a month this is based on the latest information from the manufacturer. These dates should be treated as a guide and may be subject to change. Due to an increase in global demand for bicycles and the disruption in supply during the COVID-19 pandemic supply chains have become very strained. Lead times are based on factory and shipping schedules both of which can be disrupted by delays in component supply and shipping/port capacity.
Should you place a future order with us for a bicycle we will monitor the bike’s ETA and keep you informed of any changes.

Size Options & Purchase
This Cannondale Topstone Carbon 650b 3 Quicksand is available with our legendary Podium Point free accessory scheme.
The all new Cannondale Topstone Carbon featuring the unique, revolutionary and updated Kingpin rear suspension system to give unparalleled control and comfort. Topstone Carbon is the perfect partner for gravel and mixed terrains; as well as great handling and comfort the Topstone Carbon is ready to be loaded up for bikepacking adventures too.
Topstone Carbon 3 is offered in both a 700c wheel size and a 650b wheel size. The 650b wheel option will accept up to a 2.1" (52mm) tyre where as the 700c version will accomodate up to a 45mm tyre. With a larger air volume the 650b version potentially offers a bit more comfort and control at the expense of some addtional drag. Chose your weapon to suit your style.
Kingpin Suspension. Delivering a smooth ride without the added weight and complexity of a shock and links, Kingpin is Cannondale's answer for the most demanding gravel riders. Whether you need more comfort to go long, more traction to push beyond or more give to take on the tech - Kingpin is the maintenance-free, lightweight answer to your prayers.
With plentiful gear and waterbottle mounts on the frame and fork, Topstone Carbon is ready to load up and go long.
Corner like a Boss. Rail through the rough and come out smiling. Led by Cannondale's OutFront steering geometry, the Topstone Carbon offers up handling that's serenely stable in the chop, and light & nimble everywhere else.
Tuned for the Rider -Cannondale's Proportional Response size-specific construction creates optimal frame stiffness and compliance for each frame size, so that every rider has the ideal ride feel and comfort of Kingpin.
Engineered Simplicity - New low-friction bushings on the Kingpin thru-axle offer smooth action, maintenance free reliability and over 100 grams of weight savings vs the previous cartridge bearings.
Clearance and Compatibility - The new dropped chainstay design lets you run big volume tires (up to 700x45mm or 650bx2.1", with 6mm of mud-shedding clearance on each side), all with a standard dish rear wheel for easy interchangeability.
Connected - An integrated wheel sensor delivers hyper-accurate speed, route and distance info while you ride, registers your bike, reminds you of needed service and more, all through the free Cannondale App.
Dropper Ready - Built to accept an internally-routed 27.2mm dropper seatpost, which shouldn't really be a surprise on a bike this off-road capable.
