Product Description

2017 Cannondale Slate 105 Road Bike


Why blend in with the crowd, when you can stand out, rise above and set off on your own path. The Cannondale Slate 105 road/gravel bike does exactly that, breaking the status quo and having a whale of a time in doing so.

Designed from the ground up – with a clean slate, as it were – Cannondale wanted to build the most fun and all-round capable road bike they could. The answer was an all-new SmartForm C1 Premium aluminium frame designed for 650b wheels, with short chain stays, a slack MTB-style head angle and a long front-centre. This gives the bike a fun & snappy back end which begs to be playfully thrown around, along with a stable & well-balanced front end to cope with off-road riding.

There’s a good reason Cannondale opted for slightly smaller 650b wheels on the Slate. With a 42c tyre, the rolling radius is almost identical to a 700x23c tyre, bestowing the bike with road-bike-like acceleration, albeit with a big balloon tyre with oodles of grip, traction, and bump-absorbing properties. With the Save Plus Micro-Suspension System built into the frame’s rear triangle, you get even more bump-eating comfort from the Slate.

Have you met Oliver? He comes with the Cannondale Slate 105, and he’s your new best friend. The Lefty Oliver carbon fork was purpose built for the Slate, delivering 30mm of silky smooth suspension travel through the front wheel to give this bike true mixed-terrain credentials.

The Slate 105 is no slouch, on or off the road. A Shimano 2x11 speed 105 groupset makes sure of that, along with high-spec Shimano R785 disc brakes with ample stopping power to make use of all the available grip of the tyres.
