It was only a matter of time…

Is it a road bike? Is it a ‘cross bike? Neither – it’s Cannondale’s new Slate ‘adventure road bike’. Do not adjust your sets – yes, that is a Lefty…

Here’s the intro to the film. (For best effect, adopt booming American Movie Voiceover voice.)

For those whose love for the road extends beyond just the road. For those whose thirst for fun and adventure cannot be quenched by mere road bikes or those dreary grinders of gravel. For all those who don’t necessarily want to road-ride, but who just want to ride the roads, and the verges, the trails, and whatever strikes their fancy, we proudly offer a road bike unlike anything you’ve ever seen.

See? It works.

The Slate is due to arrive in the “fall” (that’s autumn, for the rest of us). We’re looking forward to seeing how it fares on the mixed Yorkshire parcours.
