    You can always rely on Cannondale to break the mould with outrageously fun bikes. The Cannondale Slate Apex cyclocross/gravel bike is the perfect embodiment of this outside-the-box thinking that the American brand is so loved for.

    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.

    A fun & playful frame is no good without suitably quick components. The Cannondale Slate Apex comes with a rigid one-piece lefty fork and 1x11 speed SRAM Apex gearing, with a matching SRAM S350 chainset and SRAM Apex 1 HRD hydraulic disc brakes. The result is a wonderfully minimalistic looking bike, which will but a whopping smile on your face every time you set off, slow down, take a turn or change a gear.

    Key Features:

    • SmartForm C1 premium alloy frame is lightweight, and designed specifically for 650b wheels
    • Cannondale Solo Rigid ‘lefty’ fork, made from one-piece of alloy for the best strength-to-weight ratio
    • SRAM Apex 1x11 speed gearing shifts rapidly, with no fuss
    • SRAM Apex 1 HRD disc brakes
    • 650bx42c Slate Folding tyres – the same circumference as 700x23c, with big volume grip & comfort
    • Sizes: Small, Medium, Large, X Large
    • Colour: Blue Collar
    • The Cannondale Slate Apex is available with 0% APR finance
