The Topstone Neo SL is Cannondale’s newest addition to its Gravel ebike range. The Neo SL range is a lighter, more affordable aluminium version of its weighty and pricey carbon big brother.
The Neo SL features the virtually invisible Mahle eBikemotion electric assist rear hub motor with its super-discreet 250Wh internal down tube battery. This is aesthetically much more pleasing than the mid mount motors on the Carbon versions and offers a significant 4kg weight saving to boot. The rear hub motor offers full control via the iWOC system, a flush top tube mounted push and hold button. Turn it on and the LED-lit ring around the button shines white, press and hold and it turns green for low assistance, orange for medium, and red for full assistance. It also shows battery levels, reducing the chances of being left with no power for that final hill climb. Integrated connectivity with the ebikemotion App provides a more accurate battery level, along with distance travelled, altitude, average speed, cadence, gradient, and current speed. Download some maps to the App and it can navigate for you and upload data to external platforms.
The SL1 features the durable SmartForm C2 Alloy frame with full carbon fork, 1x Shimano GRX 600 groupset (40 x 11-42) and Cannondale’s own tubeless-ready alloy disc wheels and powerful hydraulic disc brakes. With clearance for up to 47mm tyres on 700c wheels, the Neo SL is ready to tackle the toughest off road adventures.
