If you want peak performance, you’ll want to check out the Cannondale Topstone Neo Carbon Electric Road Bike. Its 28mph top speed and Shimano GRX hydraulic disc brakes alone make it one of the best electric road bikes. It even has a battery that lasts miles on end for added distance.
Why We Like It – Cannondale Topstone Neo Carbon Electric Road Bike
The Cannondale Topstone Neo Carbon Electric Road Bike sweetens its 28mph top speed and Shimano GRX hydraulic disc brakes with its Kingpin suspension system that eats up terrain like chowder.
Durability & Build Quality
Rather than use aluminum or steel, the Cannondale Topstone Neo Carbon Electric Road Bike uses BallisTec new Topstone carbon frame, which is strong, lightweight, and flexible. Seat tube stretches between 41-55-inches, depending on size. The new Lefty Oliver suspension fork (also made of carbon) has a thru axle of 12×110 with a 55mm outfront offset and flat mount disc that handles bumps and grooves like no one’s business.
Performance (Speed & Acceleration)
When you least expect it, the Cannondale Topstone Neo Carbon Electric Road Bike can top its miles per hour at 28. It matches the equally impressive Specialized Turbo Creo SL in terms of speed, and it’s all thanks to Bosch’s performance line CX motor.
Range & Battery
WIth an impressive 500Wh battery, the Cannondale Topstone Neo Carbon Lefty can travel up to 78 miles on a single charge, perhaps a bit more using pedal assist. However, the recharging is abysmal; it takes eight hours to charge.
You don’t get a headlight, nor reflectors. There’s also no fenders. What you do get are large, 37-inch wheel size tires and the Kingpin suspension system. The Kingpin suspension fork and Kingpin rear suspension system eat up bumps and grooves on terrain, reducing vibration and, in turn, reducing the chances of being tossed off your ride.
Just about every inch of the new Carbon Lefty 2 Electric Bike has been fitted with high quality parts, whether it’s the tires or the seat. It wants to be ridden, and it gives every reason to. Yes, it is a bit pricey, but this e gravel bike is what peak performance looks like. But if affordability is an issue, you can drop down to a Trek Domane+ E Bike or the $2999 Orbea Gain eBike.
Cannondale Topstone Neo Carbon Electric Road Bike Wrap Up
The Cannondale Topstone Neo Carbon Electric Road Bike makes its way onto our best list, due to it hitting on all cylinders. It’s pricey, but that’s the cost of performance. What you get in return is nothing short of impressive: 28mph top speed, 78-mile range, and Shimano hydraulic brakes that are confident in their stopping power.
