  • Big tires + small wheels = Good times

    Enjoy the best of both worlds – 42c tires on 650 lb wheels cover the same ground as a 700x23c alternative, but with increased traction, comfort and grip on corners.

  • FULL-FUN GEOMETRY

    The Cannondale Slate's speed is boosted by short chainstays, while off-road handling and stability is improved by the slack head angle and long front-center.

  • MAGICAL COMFORT

    Bumps don't have to slow you down anymore, thanks to the large volume of the cycle's tires, the plush SAVE rear triangle and the Lefty Oliver suspension fork.

  • SURPRISINGLY LIGHT, SURPRISINGLY FAST

    Despite its sturdy appearance, the Cannondale Slate weighs less than a kilo more than other off-road bikes of its kind. The result? A bike that can go toe-to-toe with traditional road bikes for speed, but with an added smoothness that's tough to beat.
