FOR A RIDICULOUSLY GOOD TIME, START WITH A CLEAN SLATE.

  • The most all-around capable "road" bike we've ever made

Tech Info:
The idea for Slate started with the realisation that 650b road wheels with massive 42c tyres offer the same rollout (outer diameter) as a 700x22c wheel/tyre combo. That means Cannondale could get the unreal cornering grip and float of big tyres, with proper road bike speed and crazy-good handling.

SLATE'S "FULL FUN" GEOMETRY
Since Cannondale didn't have to compromise the Slate's geo around big tyres on big wheels, they were free to optimise it to maximise fun in all conditions. Short chainstays keep things lively and agile, while a longer front-centre and slacker head angle provide the stability needed for rough roads and off-road excursions. Rider position fits right between the full aggressiveness of Elite Race and the more upright Endurance.

LEFTY OLIVER
Designed to be ridden all-over, the Oliver is built specifically for Slate. 30mm of travel, with heavily tuned low speed compression damping and a unique COG (Coil over Gas) negative spring to minimise bobbing. PBR on-the-fly lockout and rebound adjustment. Carbon outer structure and OPI forged alloy inner leg. It's the most capable front suspension the road has ever seen.

SAVE PLUS MICRO-SUSPENSION SYSTEM
The dramatic shaping of the seat stays and chainstays on the Slate provide a great balance of big bump-eating capability and rock solid rigidity. Just what you need when blasting down rocky trails or potholed streets.

DROPPER POST COMPATIBLE
Nothing inspires confidence like a dropper post, and with 27.2mm diameter posts and internal dropper routing, it's an easy upgrade to make.

SYNTACE 142X12 THRU-AXLE
Thru-axle design boosts stiffness. Threads integrated into replaceable derailleur hanger.

BRAZE-ON DISC CALIPER MOUNT
Super tidy, ultra-light and extremely strong, Cannondale’s patent-pending braze-on mount is designed for the new low-profile flat-mount brakes.

SLATE GEO
The Slate is designed to offer incredibly fun, snappy road-bike handling with real, off-road capability. Rider position is aggressive and performance oriented - equivalent to the HeadsUp Race position. The 650bx42c wheel/tyre combo enable Cannondale to get the serious traction and float of large volume 42c tyres, while keeping the same short chainstay length as a SuperSix EVO, which keeps things agile and quick. To provide stability and confidence when things get rough, the front-centre distance is increased via a longer top tube and slacker head angle. The result? A bike that rails corners like a race bike, tracks effortlessly through chatter and bumps, and provides more smiles per mile than any road bike ever made.
