Topstone Carbon

An unprecedented gravel bike with real suspension. It's the most off-road capable and on-road comfortable road bike ever made.

Topstone Carbon distills our experience making fast race bikes, comfortable endurance bikes and ultra-light dual suspension mountain bikes into an exceptional machine, designed for maximum fun in places beyond most gravel bikes' abilities, or maximum comfort in more ordinary terrain.

Kingpin Suspension.

Revolutionary, super-light suspension that lets you ride harder on dirt and more smoothly on pavement.

A thru-axle pivot in the seat tube allows the entire back of the frame – the rear stays, seat tube, even the rear of the top tube – to flex like a series of connected leaf-springs, absorbing bumps and road vibration without the weight and complexity of a shock and linkages.

Incredibly light and robust, Kingpin Suspension gives you up to 30mm of suspension that improves comfort, traction and control whether you’re seated or standing, letting you roll smoother or push it harder than ever.

KINGPIN MEETS PROPORTIONAL RESPONSE

What is
Proportional
Response?
Suspension and overall ride-feel are custom tuned by size, using different carbon layup and tube dimensions, meaning that each size has perfect suspension response and ideal frame stiffness. No setup, no hassle. Just get on and go. Proportional Response and Kingpin Suspension function in harmony to provide an ultra-smooth ride and confident traction for every size of bike, and rider.

Positioned to Play
Relaxed enough to go long, sporty enough to shred, Topstone Carbon offers a riding position that brings comfort and control on all-day adventures and confidence for singletrack sessions.
All the Gear
Plenty of places to store gear and water, with a multi-position mount on the downtube, and more on the top tube, seat tube, and under the down tube. There's even mounts on the forks. Extra bottle? Check. Sleeping pad? You bet. Kitchen sink? Maybe.
Go Big
With clearance for seriously big rubber (700x40c or 650bx48c with room to spare) Topstone Carbon expands your playground and pins the fun meter.
