2018 Cannondale Slate RIGID 105 - Medium

With its custom Lefty fork and fat-and-fast-rolling 650x42c tires, Slate is a legit road machine with serious off-road capabilities. From pavement to gravel to single track, Slate rails where other road bikes fail. A full-tilt road bike with legitimate off-road chops, the Slate brings a whole new dimension of hard-cornering, curb-hopping, trail-shredding fun to the concept of “road-riding”. Massive 42c Tires on 650b wheels give you the the same roll-out diameter as a 700x23c wheel for proper road bike speed, but with unreal cornering grip, traction and comfort. Short chain stays give Slate snappy quickness, while a slack head angle keeps things stable for off-road excursions. With the big-volume tires, plush SAVE rear triangle, and Lefty Solo Rigid fork, the Slate is magically smooth over bumps and chatter. Despite its burly look, Slate weighs less than more than comparable road bikes and it carries speed like a traditional (but bizarrely smooth) road bike.
