LEGIT OFF-ROAD CHOPS!
Slate is the bike you never knew you always wanted. It's a full-tilt road bike with legit off-road chops. It's a drop-bar bike with a Lefty fork. It's got massive tires, yet has road bike quickness. Float over potholes, boost off of curbs, rail down trails or just bring a little excitement to the next group ride. On Slate, fun is the only mission.
Short chainstays give Slate snappy quickness, while a slack head angle and long front-centre keep things stable for off-road excursions.
MAGIC CARPET COMFORT
With the big-volume tyres, plush SAVE PLUS (+) rear triangle, and Lefty Oliver suspension fork, the Slate is magically smooth over bumps and chatter.
SURPRISINGLY LIGHT, SURPRISINGLY FAST
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.
This Cannondale Slate is fantastic fun and full of great engineering and components. This example is the top model with SRAM Force, and is in great condition with very little use from it’s one owner. There are some cosmetic marks consistent with its age (2018)
